Resource to be used for Astrophysics, Biology, Materials Research

SDSC and the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute in New York reached an agreement under which the majority of SDSC’s data-intensive Gordon supercomputer will be used by Simons for ongoing research following completion of the system’s tenure as a National Science Foundation (NSF) resource on March 31. Under the agreement, SDSC provides high-performance computing (HPC) resources and services on Gordon for the Flatiron Institute to conduct computationally-based research in astrophysics, biology, condensed matter physics, materials science, and other domains.
