LARAMIE, Wyo., Sept. 3 -- The University of Wyoming has more than doubled its capacity for high-performance computing on campus.
Tim Brewer is UW's end user support manager for information technology. Brewer says UW has expanded its high-performance computing cluster known as "Mount Moran."
The campus cluster has been fully operational since February. It enables atmospheric and earth sciences faculty to learn what to expect with their software and work out bugs before taking it to the much larger NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center near Cheyenne.
In addition, the cluster provides a research resource for any UW research faculty who have a complex problem or whose research doesn't fall within the scope of the supercomputer.
Currently, Brewer says 115 UW faculty members, students, post-doctoral researchers and others use the high-performance computing center on campus for their research.
