South Dakota Board of Regents awards USD $200,000 for scientific research supercomputer

4 Aug 2015 Vermillion - The University of South Dakota (USD) has been awarded a $200,000 Research and Development Innovation grant from the South Dakota Board of Regents. The award, along with institutional and federal funds, will support the acquisition of a new campus supercomputer for scientific research.

The National Science Foundation has recently identified supercomputing systems as necessary research instruments, alongside equipment like DNA sequencers and electron microscopes.

USD's previous supercomputer was acquired in 2006 through an award from the National Institutes of Health and has supported over 100 students and faculty, contributing to scientific publications and courses.

Deputy CIO and Director of Information Technology Services Cheryl Tiahrt and Research Computing Manager Doug Jennewein developed the proposal after consulting with USD scientists and computer architects from industry. The new system will provide thousands of processing units, specially optimized software and more than 1,000 times the memory of a traditional laptop.

The $200,000 was among $700,000 the Regents approved for four of the state's public universities.
