The Portable Electronic Parallel Processing Educational Resource
(PEPPER), built by mathematics faculty
Ed Donley and John Chrispell, is a six-node LittleFe mini supercomputer designed to
bring parallel and distributed computing into the
PEPPER allows for key computational concepts such as
speedup, efficiency, and load balancing to be done on a parallel
computer in a classroom setting. It supports shared memory, distributed memory, and
GPGPU parallelism that students using high performance computing
clusters will encounter.
Any interested faculty
members and students can use PEPPER for class projects and research.
