Talon, the university's high performance computing system, to be upgraded

The March 2013 issue of Benchmarks Online is now available. Learn more below or from Claudia Lynch.

 Featured articles in Benchmarks Online are: 

  • Campus Computing News: UNT Plans High Performance Computing Upgrade - In 2009, UNT made a major investment in supporting computational research with the purchase of a large-scale campus-wide High Performance Computing (HPC) installation that the university named Talon. The Talon system was expected to operate for three years, after which a replacement system would need to be purchased. Talon is now in its fourth year of operation, and since High Performance Computing stresses the compute servers by constantly applying 100 percent processing loads, disk and memory failures are becoming more common as the equipment ages.
