New ARC flagship CPU cluster Tinkercliffs featured in VT news

Tinkercliffs, ARC's most recent cluster, is online and is making news owing to its scale (more than 300 nodes and almost 42,000 CPU cores) and some of the challenges the acquisition and commisioning faced in the COVID-19 era.

See the news article here:

ARC also has a webpage for introducing Tinkercliffs to the VT community and will continue to add more resources in the coming months:

As of early October, access to the cluster is provided though a consultation with an ARC computational scientist. You may reach out to one of the team directly or submit a ticket requesting a consultation via arc.vt.edu/support.
