Gary Grider, HPC Divison Leader

The High Performance Computing (HPC) Division supports the Laboratory mission by managing world-class Supercomputing Centers.

This includes specifying, operating, and assisting in the use of both open and secure high performance computing, storage, and emerging data-intensive information science production systems for multiple programs.

  • Expertly translate computing industry trends into a robust high performance computing environment;
  • Design and operate the physical infrastructure supporting LANL's computing needs;
  • Operate and enable effective use of the full high performance computing environment;
  • Leverage high performance computing systems, processes, and expertise, beyond traditional HPC, to advance innovative Laboratory scientific efforts;
  • Engage in research, development, and state-of-the-art software engineering, supporting development, design, and effective use of increasingly complex large-scale data and computational environments.

HPC Division translates evolving HPC technologies into the assets that are deployed in the Centers as well as

  • performing applied research,
  • advanced software engineering,
  • user support,
  • facilities maintenance, and
  • full-system integration

to provide the unprecedented-scale computing capabilities required to provide solutions to complex problems of strategic national interest.

Innovations for a secure nation

Portable MRI aids wounded soldiers, children in remote areas

Portable MRI aids wounded soldiers, children in remote areas

Scientists are developing an ultra-low-field Magnetic Resonance Imaging system that could be low-power and lightweight enough for forward deployment on the battlefield and to field hospitals in the World's poorest regions.
