Story Highlights

The NSF has extended operational funding for TACC's Stampede2 supercomputer through June 2023. Prior to the extension, the life of the system was expected to end in September 2022.

The system entered full production in Fall 2017 as an 18 petaflop system that built on the successes of the original Stampede cluster it replaced. At the time, it was the most powerful and capable academic supercomputer in the world.

To date, Stampede2 has run nearly nine million jobs with a utilization rate of more than 96 percent and an uptime rate of more than 98 percent.

The system has enabled many important research projects, including enabling scientists to design new DNA readers; explain what holds protons together; and understand how black holes impact star formation.
