High Performance Computing

Over the span of 15 years I have maintained and managed many compute clusters. In the recent past I was responsible for two high performance compute clusters. One cluster was a hybrid with three different sets of processing hardware. This used a combination of Dell blades, IBM servers, and Nvida Tesla GPUs. It gave researchers a variety of parallel computing tools to solve complex problems. Another cluster was all Dell and was designed to process and filter large volumetric seismic data. It was also used to process massive point clouds from LIDAR and photogrammetry data originating from terrestrial and aerial remote sensing. I have been building, managing, and programming on high performance computers for over 20 years and enjoy watching systems like this solve complex problems in a day that would normally take a year.
