Our Experience:

For the National Ocean Service (NOS), GAMA-1’s Cloud/High-Performance Computing (HPC) Engineers are responsible for establishing High-Performance Computing in Azure and significantly expanding capabilities available to NOS/NCCOS scientists and researchers to run scientific models and simulations with results produced in hours rather than weeks or months.

Working in collaboration with NCCOS, our engineers planned, developed, engineered the HPC Atlas solution in Microsoft Virtual Network (VNET) utilizing Azure Resource Manager to automate many IT tasks.

The HPC solution uses cluster environment with a master Head Node which is responsible for providing scalability for compute nodes that can be scaled to 10,000 CPU cores to enhance NCCOS’ ability to offer high-quality predictive regional ecosystem model with improved skilled and substantially shortened delivery time.

Head Node Backup and Recovery service was implemented on the Azure platform. For each project, a dedicated premium storage NFS server with multiple drives with Raid 0 stripe was created. Tracking and monitoring are provided for HPC nodes, queues and job status.

Our team has successfully delivered 12 HPC projects across NCCOS program offices and research centers.

The NCCOS HPC environment currently supports over 20 algorithms delivering over 30 science data products. Currently, our team is supporting 5+ active HPC projects at NCCOS which support important NOS missions such as monitoring Harmful Algal Blooming & Coral Structure.

These HPC capabilities have been implemented using NOAA “JET” HPC resources, on-premise workstations, and Microsoft Azure cloud services.

GAMA-1’s Network Engineers are knowledgeable, dependable, and conscientious. They continue to provide exceptional customer service in support of NEXRAD, SPG, and NPN network changes. They make long term goals possible for the Radar Operations Center. Without you and your team, the Radar Operations Center would not have been able to evolve or maintain high availability for each of these three critical NWS programs."
