Improving Weather, Climate Forecasting and Research
Critical high-performance computing systems support the NOAA community by providing more accurate weather forecasting and in conducting research and development for environmental science. GDIT built and deployed NOAA’s Cactus and Dogwood HPC systems, ranked 37th and 38th fastest in the world, to provide more accurate weather and climate forecasting for the National Weather Service. And our HPC services and systems integration support 430 PB of user data for weather, seasonal and climate model predictions.
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.
