Meet El Capitan, “The Most Powerful Computing Machine in the World”

How do you build what aims to be “the most powerful computing machine in the world”? For starters, you can watch this video to see how Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is constructing its next-gen supercomputer El Capitan, which will be deployed in 2024. Through the lifespan of the machine, lab employees will need to operate, troubleshoot, and maintain El Capitan around the clock, seven days a week, ensuring that scientists, physicists, and code teams can perform their calculations efficiently and in a timely manner.
