Princeton Research Computing introduces the University's newest TIGER supercomputer

TIGER, a supercomputer and the largest Linux cluster on campus, is a hybrid system with a combination of 392 HPE compute nodes with Intel Skylake chips and 320 NVIDIA Pascal P100 GPUs.5 Jul 2018 Princeton - Replacing a cluster installed in 2012, Princeton’s new flagship computer, TIGER, arrived quietly on campus in March and was put through months of routine testing and debugging before being officially unveiled in late May. Several tours and a reception were held at the High-Performance Computing Research Center (HPCRC) on the Forrestal Campus during Reunions.

At close to six times the power of its predecessor, TIGER - funded jointly by the University Provost, the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) and several University schools and departments - represents "Princeton University’s mission to advance learning through scholarship and research of unsurpassed quality," says Jay Dominick, the University's Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer. "Computation has become an indispensable tool in accomplishing that mission. With the newest addition to our High Performance Computing suite, Princeton continues to equip its faculty with the most advanced computational tools available. The TIGER cluster, and the remarkable staff that support it, are symbolic of the university’s commitment to sustained excellence."

Jeroen Tromp, PICSciE’s director and the Blair Professor of Geology and professor of geosciences and applied and computational mathematics said, "There’s such a wide range of research crucial to humanity, from investigations of fusion energy to new frontiers in genomics, that is now dependent on computers to analyze huge complex data sets and turn predictions into testable hypotheses. In many cases, our success as researchers hinges on our access to cutting-edge supercomputing power."

Tromp’s own recent advances in medical imaging technology combined computational power with techniques originally developed for the study of earthquakes and subterranean structures.
