I would like to announce the opening for nominations for the Implementing an IBM High Performance Computing (HPC) Clustered Solution on IBM POWER8 Next Generation residency. During this project, the team will work on learning, configuring, writing, exploring, testing, tuning, and documenting applications to leverage the latest IBM POWER8 technology.
The goal for this residency as in the past ones is to continue to develop technical content to:
1. Show how to use an IBM POWER8 Clustered Solution for enabling and running Technical Computing workloads.
2. Describe how to plan, prepare, manage and execute Technical Computing workloads on IBM POWER8.
3. Deliver additional technical documentation, complementing available product manuals to help you manage your High Performance Computing (HPC) IBM POWER8 clustered environment.
