TeamEPCC achieves highest-ever LINPACK score in the ISC’14 Student Cluster Challenge

27 June 2014

TeamEPCC, all students of the MSc in High Performance Computing, took first place for the Highest Linpack Performance in the ISC’14 Student Cluster Challenge.

During the Cluster Challenge, 11 teams of students each built a small cluster of their own design on the ISC’14 exhibit floor and competed to demonstrate the greatest performance across a series of benchmarks and applications. 

Our TeamEPCC did a brilliant job in this year’s ISC student cluster competition. The four student team members, together with our supportive sponsors, Boston Ltd and CoolIT Systems, made this great result happen. 

A big congratulations to Manos, Konstantinos, Georgios and Chenhui! Well done guys!
