Chameleon at FAST

Chameleon will organize two BOFs on the topic of reproducibily at the USENIX FAST'23 conference.

The BOFs will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday 02/21-22 to discuss how to best package storage experiments on Chameleon for reproducibility. We will present several experiments patterns that should help you package your own experiments as well as actual packaged experiments for reproducing. Chameleon staff will be around to answer questions and provide technical help in packaging and reproducing experiments.

Fugaku Nodes now at CHI@TACC

Interested in the Fugaku Supercomputer? We now have 8 Fugaku nodes (Fujitsu FX700), available in CHI@TACC! Each of these nodes has a 48 core ARM A64FX CPU, 32 GiB of HBM2 memory, 512GB of NVMe storage, and HDR100 Infiniband. Notably, the high-bandwidth memory and non-x86 architecture are hard to find in other systems. TACC’s Frontera Supercomputer originally procured these for evaluation, but they’re now available for general use in Chameleon.
