Penguin Computing Awarded Five-Year Contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP)

Penguin Computing was recently awarded a five year firm-fixed-price contract from the DoD HPCMP for our commercially-available, production-grade, high-performance computer systems. We will be providing our Tundra® Extreme Scale (ES) Open Compute Platform system with 176,128 total compute cores. This system is replacing older supercomputers in the DoD HPCMP’s ecosystem with latest generation technologies.

Our system will provide high performance computing capability for users from all of the services and agencies of the Department and will provide computing power to address physics, AI and ML applications. Our Tundra platform significantly enhances the Program’s capability to support the DoD’s most demanding computational challenges and includes a novel tiered data storage capability with automatic migration of data between solid state and disk drive based subsystems.

The system is expected to enter production service early in fiscal year 2022 at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
