Stampede: Dell PowerEdge C8220 Cluster with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors Lonestar: Dell Linux Cluster Maverick: HP/NVIDIA Interactive Visualization and Data Analytics System Ranch: Petascale archival facility

On January 7, 2013 TACC deployed a new compute cluster, Stampede. Funded by the National Science Foundation, this new cluster provides the community with access to 2 PFlops of Intel based microprocessor power and 8 PFlops of Intel MIC (Many Integrated Core) architecture technology. During the Institute students will receive a description of the system and TACC staff will present a session on how to use the new MIC architecture.

Lectures and Labs: Senior TACC staff will deliver presentations and lead interactive laboratory sessions:

Obtaining access to TACC resources and services Reviewing the hardware and software available on TACC resources Developing parallel programs with OpenMP and MPI Using visualization and data analysis software and systems GPGPU programming Using the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor (MIC)
