NCAR’s Yellowstone still running supercomputing jobs and training students

May 12, 2023

Although the NCAR decommissioned its Yellowstone supercomputer at the end of 2017, according to NCAR’s supercomputing history, that wasn’t really the end of the story. Even today, researchers still use much of the system’s hardware, publish scientific papers based on their work, and students learn about high-performance computing and move on to careers in the field.

“Yellowstone provides tens of millions of CPU hours each month driving research and supporting our teaching and research mission at the HPC Center,” said Steve Jones, director of Stanford University's High Performance Computing Center.
