New UT supercomputer to be installed at ORNL
Thomas Zacharia will manage the new supercomputer program for the university and laboratory.
"The National Science Foundation - because it is an academic machine - will have different cyber security rules than the DOE machine," Zacharia says. "This machine will be on a separate network than our machine, but it shares practices between the two programs and also lots of users."
Zacharia says the two supercomputer systems will solidify East Tennessee's reputation as a world computational science leader.
"I know that there is not another place in the country where you have a major National Science Foundation academic supercomputer and a major Department of Energy supercomputing installation."
ORNL is managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy.
