Cluster Computing is Happening at WHS

picture of computers in the technology lab The PC Maintenance class of 2016 17 is learning about cluster computing by building, programming, and running real-world simulations in order to solve problems we face or can relate to today.

  • Team Alpha is building a Multimedia cluster to use the added power to create grass-roots online news content as in a “war-zone” environment with limited resources.
  • Team Bravo is building a Weather Mapping cluster to predict storm weather patterns and potential damage levels for farmlands and plains in the US.
  • Team Charlie is helping the fight against cancer by creating a cluster to perform cancer research modeling and simulation.
  • Team Delta’s cluster computer will help with structural design by creating models and simulations for structural strength during earthquakes
