Congratulations to Dell, Cambridge University, the Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) and the Department of Science and Technology (South Africa), and TACC on the HPCwire Workforce Diversity Leadership Award for the HPC Ecosystem Project. The project started in 2013, when TACC donated several server racks of the retired Ranger cluster to CHPC in South Africa to help train students and provide access to HPC.
