Supercomputers - a common enough term these days but what is a supercomputer? And what does it have to do with a Raspberry Pi? Better yet, what do we need them for?
ARCHER,the current UK National Supercomputing Service, is hosted and run by EPCC and the University of Edinburgh - this talk will use ARCHER as an example to look at what a supercomputer is and why we need and use them. And from that, explain why Raspberry Pis get all caught up in the mix with a look at Wee Archie.
Supporting ARCHER is just one of the services EPCC provides and in amongst all the other information, we will look at what EPCC does.
