Word from User Support
Thanks for visiting SDSC's Thread User Newsletter! This issue features information on a new software offering at SDSC - "Star-P" - that provides a parallel computational client-server solution for products such as MatLab. We are also pleased to offer several upcoming outreach/training opportunities:
On the Allocations front, the Allocation Committee met the first week of March to review proposals and recommend awards for TeraGrid resources to start April 1. Total requests for SUs doubled since the last review cycle (from 74 million SUs to 133 million SUs). For SDSC's resources, DataStar was heavily requested with more than 17 million SUs, resulting in 13.6 million SUs awarded (DataStar had only 5.75 million SUs available so many allocations were split across other resources with available cycles).
I hope you enjoy this Spring Issue of Thread.
