BUTTE, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rocky Mountain Supercomputing Centers, Inc. (RMSC) today announced that Susan L. Baldwin has joined its Board of Directors. Baldwin is the Executive Director of Compute Canada, an organization created to integrate Canada’s extensive High Performance Computing (HPC) resources.
“Susan is an excellent addition to the RMSC Board because she shares our vision of bringing High Performance Computing technology to small- and medium-sized businesses,” said Earl J. Dodd, RMSC Executive Director.
Headquartered in Butte, RMSC is a public-private partnership funded by Montana to drive economic development in the state by breaking down the barriers that have traditionally prevented small- to medium-sized enterprise (SMEs), government agencies and tribal businesses from leveraging the power of HPC technology. In less than a year, RMSC has set up a unique HPC Cloud infrastructure and on-demand business model that enable organizations in the public and private sectors to run their critical applications at the speed and through-put capacity of a supercomputer.
“RMSC and the State of Montana have seized the leadership position in harnessing HPC technology as an economic driver that makes businesses more competitive in the global market place,” said Susan Baldwin.
Under Baldwin’s leadership, Compute Canada has integrated HPC resources from seven partner consortia across Canada to create a powerful and dynamic computational resource. Compute Canada and the university-based regional HPC consortia provide for overall architecture and planning, software integration, operations and management, and coordination of user support for the national HPC platform. Compute Canada works to ensure that Canadian researchers have the computational facilities and expert services necessary to advance scientific knowledge and innovation.
