The new Lonestar system is the latest in the line of leadership high performance computing systems provided by the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) toresearchers in the state of Texas. Two things make this system unique: one is the comprehensive computing capabilities provided by the system. Whether you need to run large scale parallel computing jobs, shared memory computations, remote visualization tasks, GPGPU computing, or high throughput computations, Lonestar has the capabilities you need. The second aspect is the broad partnership involved in deploying this system, with funding provided by the National Science Foundation, The University of Texas System, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, The University of Texas at Austin, the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin and a number of research centers. If you need large scale computation for your research, and you work in higher education in Texas, Lonestar is the system for you!

Join the staff of TACC for a 90 minute webinar on March 24 to learn about the capabilities of Lonestar. An overview of the system itself will be provided, along with information about how to apply for an account, and information about upcoming in-depth training opportunities. This course is targeted at all researchers in Texas Higher Education or the TeraGrid community interested in learning about TACC resources.
