Today, both HP and Purdue University as well as invited students, press, and executives celebrated two key milestones during Purdue’s Homecoming weekend in West Lafayette, Indiana. 


First, Purdue announced a new pilot program called Purdue Pathfinder.  As part of the program, Purdue students will get an opportunity to work on campus in HP’s satellite Discovery Lab.  This collaboration will allow students to gain hands on engineering experience while still in school, stay on the cutting edge of the fast paced technology industry, and create future HP leaders.

HP and Purdue also celebrated the deployment of the Conte cluster, ranked as #28 in this year’s TOP500 list and the highest-ranking campus supercomputer.  Conte contains over 500 SL250s Gen8 Servers each with two Intel Xeon processors and two Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors.  A video of the Conte supercomputer is part of Discovery Lab tour and the celebration continues with a student/parent reception and additional activities throughout Purdue’s Homecoming weekend.
