Critical high-performance computing systems support the NOAA community by enabling more accurate weather forecasting and by supporting research and development for NOAA’s weather & climate science. GDIT built and deployed NOAA’s Cactus and Dogwood HPC systems to deliver HPC-as-a-Service for National Weather Service operational forecasting. For NOAA’s research and development HPC, GDIT operates and maintains three distinct supercomputing systems plus HPC-in-the-Cloud.
HPC expertise on-hand for advanced support.
The DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) User Productivity Enhancement and Training (PET) initiative supports DoD scientists and engineers by enabling them to take full advantage of available HPC resources through training, collaboration, tools and software development, technology transfer, and outreach. GDIT supports the PET initiative by providing computational experts with experience spanning the full spectrum of HPCMP HPC technology areas, outreach, and training support to encourage HPC skill development for users. Our team is able to apply this experience to DoD challenges, empowering the end-users to leverage PET’s knowledge of HPC best practices.
GDIT’s upgrade to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Biowulf, the largest HPC cluster dedicated to biomedical research, led it to be ranked 66th fastest in the world in 2017. Our hardware solution seamlessly integrates with existing hardware and software and our team provides daily administration and program support. Biowulf is also instrumental for research into new treatments for diseases, including coronaviruses.
