Episode 275 – High Performance podCast (2)

Today we are going deeper, higher, farther and better than we ever went before: it’s HPC time at the Roaring Elephant and since we definitely do not qualify as experts on that particular matter, we are overjoyed to welcome Walter Lioen and Valeriu Codreanu who are Surf‘s rocket scientists, when it comes to High Performance Computing!

Snellius Top500 & Green500

Since this episode was recorded, the new TOP500 and Green500 have been announced and the newly launched Dutch supercomputer Snellius scored a respectable 313st and 403rd place on the top500 and an absolutely incredible 6th spot in the Green500!

Huge congratulations to Walter and Valeriu and the entire team at Surf for this outstanding result!
