Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy honor organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through energy efficiency. Fermilab’s Grid Computing Center received the agency’s Energy Star award for 2010 for ranking in the top 25th percentile of data centers registered with the EPA. <More...>
Computing Division at SC2010
From CD Tracks
Members of the Computing Division recently returned from Supercomputing 2010 in New Orleans. This year's participation by Fermilab was very productive. The technical program was strong and we gained new insights into new experiments and collaborations, programming models, tools and languages. The buzz and discussions on the show floor were more like a collaboration meeting than the "vendor show” Supercomputing has sometimes been. It was great to experience the energy and enthusiasm of the community in a climate of the increasing impact and adoption of “computational thinking and processes.” <More...>
