DescriptionSupercomputing centers of all sizes exist to drive scientific discovery by supporting researchers in computational science fields. To improve the productivity of the user and the usability of systems in an environment as complex in a typical HPC center they employ specialized support teams and individuals. The broad support effort ranges from basic system administration to managing 100's of petabytes with complex hierarchical data-storage systems, to supporting high performance networks, or consulting on advanced math libraries, code optimization, and managing complex HPC software stacks. Often, support teams struggle to adequately support scientists as HPC environments are extremely complex and combined with additional layers of complexity of hierarchical data storage, multiple networks, hybrid hardware configuration, and maintaining complicated research software stacks to support 100's or even 1000's of HPC users can be extremely demanding.
