Sept. 19, 2016 |Last Monday, five semi trucks loaded down with NCAR's next supercomputer, Cheyenne, arrived at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center after a long drive from Wisconsin. Staff from Silicon Graphics International Corp. (SGI), which built the computer along with the NCAR project team, have been working since on the hardware installation, which should be completed in about another week. Software installation and system integration work will begin after all the hardware has been installed and checked out.
Sept. 13, 2016 | NCAR lost a beloved and respected colleague when CISL Director Al Kellie passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on Sept. 7, 2016. Al will be remembered for his considerable contributions to NCAR – especially his forward-looking stewardship of its high-performance computing resources – and for the way he truly cared for his employees both professionally and personally.
