Abstract:
For the last twenty years, HEP has moved away from large centralized computers in favor of 'farms' of commodity PCs. The latest generation of high-performance computers provide an attractive alternative to this model. I will discuss some of the opportunities and challenges, as well as some of the progress ANL-HEP has made in taking advantage of these impressive computational resources.
