Last week at the ISC-HPC event in Frankfurt, I had the opportunity to speak briefly with the amazing student teams in the SCC – Student Cluster Competition. These students use commodity hardware to build supercomputers, with a limit of 3KW power consumption, and compete on a variety of benchmarks.
These teams are overwhelmingly powered by CentOS, which has the latest HPC tools and libraries, and is the defacto standard when it comes to spinning up a new supercomputing cluster.
12 teams competed, and I got to speak with four of them this year.
