HPC Baseline Configuration (BC) is an effort to define a common set of capabilities and functions so that users can work more productively and collaboratively when using the HPC resources at multiple computing centers within the LinkSCEEM-2 project context. This will be accomplished by defining and developing a common set of capabilities and functions so that users can focus energy on their research as opposed to wrestling with center-specific policies and procedures.

It is modeled after a similar effort taking place elsewhere among 6 HPC sites and in effect it is an extension upon it: http://www.ccac.hpc.mil/consolidated/bc
The effort of that BC team keeps marching on helping users work more productivity by updating existing policies to accommodate new users, integrating new capabilities that must be consistent across the enterprise, or just providing a sounding board for users experiencing difficulties.

About the Baseline Configuration

There is a growing community of LinkSCEEM-2 users who need to work on data- and computation-intensive problems spread across multiple computing centers and services. Recent discussions show that over half of users may need accounts at more than one center.

The main goal of the HPC Baseline Configuration activity is to define and establish a common set of capabilities and functions so that users can compute productively and collaboratively when using the HPC resources at multiple computing centers.
