Michigan Technological University has several computing and visualization clusters and one-off work-stations, for research and teaching. Researchers may refer to the computing resources section to find an optimum match for their needs.


R 3.1.1 (Sock it to Me)


R 3.1.1 (Sock it to Me; Release Notes) has been compiled and is now available for use on all computing clusters. Necessary job submission script can be generated via qgenscript.

Researchers are strongly recommended to re-run a previously successful simulation with this newer version and make sure that the results are consistent before proceeding ahead with subsequent, production quality attempts.



Data Center Switch Upgrade


Telcom will be upgrading the software on the data center switches, and as such, all computing clusters housed in GLRC will be inaccessible during 6-7 am on Thursday, July 17th 2014.

Running simulations will be unaffected.



Superior in review with insideHPC


insideHPC, a renowned platform that distils news and events in the world of HPC and presents them in bite-sized nuggets of helpfulness as a resource for supercomputing professionals, did an interview reviewing Superior's performance during the past year.

Read the complete interview here.



R 3.1.0 (Spring Dance)


R 3.1.0 (Spring Dance; Release Notes) has been compiled and is now available for use on all computing clusters. Necessary job submission script can be generated via qgenscript.

Researchers are strongly recommended to re-run a previously successful simulation with this newer version and make sure that the results are consistent before proceeding ahead with subsequent, production quality attempts.



Quantum ESPRESSO 5.1


Quantum ESPRESSO 5.1 (Release Notes) has been compiled and is now available for use on all computing clusters. Necessary job submission script can be generated via qgenscript.

Researchers are strongly recommended to re-run a previously successful simulation with this newer version and ensure that the results are consistent before proceeding ahead with subsequent, production quality attempts.



CONVERGE 2.2.0 β


CONVERGE 2.2.0 β, a computational fluid dynamics software suite, has been installed and is now available for use on Athena, Portage and Superior. Necessary job submission script can be generated via qgenscript.

Researchers specifically licensed and authorized to use this software suite are strongly recommended to run test simulations to ensure reproducibility of results from elsewhere before proceeding ahead with subsequent, production quality attempts.
