Casper scheduled for release October 3

September 26, 2018

NCAR’s new data analysis and visualization cluster, Casper, will be released to all users on Wednesday, October 3. Casper has 24 nodes featuring Intel’s new Skylake processors. Four of the system’s nodes feature large-memory, dense GPU configurations to support machine learning and deep learning in atmospheric and related sciences. Users who were granted early access to Casper to test their applications and workflows have provided very positive feedback.

An introductory Casper training workshop is being scheduled for 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 11. Watch for more details in the Daily Bulletin later this week.

The Geyser and Caldera clusters will remain available until the end of 2018 when they will be decommissioned.
