Gas Turbines, and Propellers: SDSC Supercomputer Simulates
Complex Real-World Engineering Flows
12.22.05 - With today's advanced technologies, it might
seem that engineers design ship propellers, jet turbines,
and scramjet engines using precise engineering methods
that always yield perfectly efficient designs. But in
fact the turbulent flows that occur in these devices
are so complex that engineers are still forced to depend
on trial and error experience...
Awards First Data Allocation
12.22.05 - SDSC recently awarded its first data allocation
to organizations who collectively requested more than
448 Terabytes of storage space. SDSC currently has more
than 3 petabytes in tape and disk storage.
star formation theory debunked
12.02.05 - Astrophysicist Richard Klein from the University
of California, Berkeley and others used simulations
run at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) to
explode one of two competing theories about how stars
form inside immense clouds of interstellar gas.
Seminar Series - "GridShib: An Attribute-Based
11.30.05 - As grid-based virtual organizations (VOs)
have grown, the cost associated with VO-based authentication

Deploys SAM-QFS System Reducing Metadata Backup Time
From 21 Hours to Just 30 Minutes
11.21.05 - The explosive growth in data intensive computing
has led San Diego Supercomputing (SDSC) to deploy SAM-QFS,
a high-performance archival storage system for files
requiring frequent or dynamic retrieval. As a result,
SDSC’s backup time has decreased by nearly 4000
