On Thursday, June 30th, 2011 Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) held a ribbon cutting ceremony to inaugurate the opening of the High Performance Computing Innovation Center (HPCIC) located in Livermore, CA. The innovation center helps foster and promote HPC development and product designs through collaborations between LLNL and industry. The center offers both face to face interactions with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory folks and remote video-based discussions.
I had the pleasure to participate in the ceremony along with my colleagues Donald Fiegel and Gabriela Gonzalez-Do. Local Congressional Representatives John Garamendi and Jerry McNerney, as well as other local officials, also attended the event. During this time, Mellanox was noted as an important partner in several collaborations with LLNL, including the opening of the new center.
