IndySCC 2021 on Chameleon

This year Chameleon hosted the IndySCC competition, analogous to the in-person Student Cluster Competition (SCC) of Supercomputing. Teams use cloud/shared resources to optimize a variety of HPC workloads in order to complete the most computations during a 48 hour final, all while staying below a strict power cap. Learn more about the compettion, Chameleon's support, and where you can see the results.

Turn Your Hardware into a Chameleon Associate Site with CHI-in-a-Box

Do you have a research cluster with an inflexible interface? Does it not provide the level of access (root) you need to run repeatable experiments?
