Chameleon for Christmas

To help make your spirits bright we will continue our “Chameleon for Christmas” tradition with end of the year 14 day leases – you get twice as much time for being twice as nice! This feature will be available for a limited time only. Also, a reminder that HelpDesk will be closed during the Holidays – please, read the post for all the details and plan accordingly. Happy Holidays!

Come and Join the Chameleon Team!

We are hiring! Come and join the team to help us build and operate the kick-ass Chameleon experimental platform as well as develop new ideas in edge computing and reproducibility. You will be working on the bleeding edge, state-of-the-art technologies, evaluating and extending open source systems and tools, and developing new features -- and most importantly working with our amazing community of users who take our breath away every day with their cool resaerch ideas! 

 

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.

We're hiring!

We're hiring a research software engineer to join the Chameleon team!

Summer with Chameleon

Using Chameleon for student interns, REUs or summer courses? Sign up for a series of webinars that introduce the platform, including CHI@Edge, the edge computing platform, on June 8th and 9th. 

CHI@Edge Community Workshop Report

Interested in using Chameleon for edge computing? We've released our report on the very first CHI@Edge community workshop that happened in September! Learn about some of our early users' research and our top takeaways from the first few months of operating an edge testbed. 

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.
