Use Case: High Performance Computing (HPC) Education

HPC education is just one of the many uses for Circumference and in this short video, Chelsea, our trainee engineer, explains how she is currently studying towards an Electronic Engineering Degree, where the desktop cluster can be used to support learning key parallel computing technologies, such as Message Passing Interface (MPI).

While an 8 or 32-Raspberry Pi node system is certainly not going to make it into the Top 500, what it does do is enable students, novice engineers and HPC enthusiasts to get hands-on with full control of an eminently compact, low cost Linux-powered cluster — with the same fundamental architecture and associated programming challenges, as most of today’s actual supercomputers.
