TACC Ramping Up Staff to Deploy Ranger

The “Ranger” supercomputer, funded by the National Science Foundation Office of Cyberinfrastructure as the first of the new Track2 HPC acquisitions, is scheduled to be in full production at the Texas Advanced Computer Center (TACC) in January 2008. In preparation for Ranger, and in response to recent award wins from High Performance Computing for Science and Engineering Research and Education (HPCOPS) and Software Development for Cyberinfrastructure (SDCI), TACC has hired several new staff members in key positions across the center. These positions will increase support for TACC’s TeraGrid resources.
“TACC has grown into one of the leading supercomputing centers in the world because we’ve hired talented staff who are committed to working as a team to build something special,” TACC Director Jay Boisseau said. “We’re extremely excited to add so many new people who share our vision, while bringing unique perspectives and experiences in supercomputing from other institutions to TACC.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
