SC10 Student Cluster Competition

Go Hard or Go Home


This is the first webcast covering the SCC (Student Cluster Competition) event at the SC10 show in November 2010.

The students bring their own self-designed and built clusters to the show, re-assemble them, and race to complete a set of benchmarks and workloads in the quickest time.

The competition will test their system design skills, their aptitude for learning new programs and new methods, and their ability to optimize code to produce more (and better) output than their rivals.

In this webcast Hai Ah Nam, SC10 committee chair for this event, discusses the SCC, the tasks, what the teams go through, and how they are judged.
