Without support from the HPC vendor community, Student Cluster Competition events wouldn’t be possible. The following vendors have supported these competitions and helped them grow to the point where we now have three major world-wide events and a thriving regional event. A big round of thanks to the vendors below and any others that we might have missed.
“The Student Cluster Competitions provide a unique opportunity for students all around the world to learn the fundamentals of high-performancecomputing technologies and to practice building compute platforms using these technologies while competing against other teams to achieve highest applications performance. This valuable experience allows students to engage with the broad high performance computing community. Mellanox is proud to support many student teams over the years enabling them to utilize state-of-the-art InfiniBand interconnect solutions for the competition, and with that fostering new generations of high performance computing researchers, scientists and professionals.”
Scot Schultz, Senior Director, HPC/AI & Technical Computing, Mellanox
“Participation in a Student Cluster Competition is perhaps the best signal that a student is a highly motivated self-starter and will thrive in any HPC-oriented environment. Over the years, I’ve seen these students start the process as team members, but then rise to positions of high responsibility in the HPC world. I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments.”
