For graduate student Deven Vignali of Libby, the three-dimensional data visualization center at Montana Tech has made his life easier.

He’s using the $60,000 state-of-the-art software and tracking system to conduct research for his master’s thesis. He’s proving that passive seismic acquisition techniques can be used to monitor geo-thermal resources, as in hot springs.

It’s the fastest high-performance computing system within Montana academia, said Jeff Braun, head of the Tech computer engineering and software engineering departments.

Consider Vignali’s perspective:

“It reduced my simulation model run time from about 18 hours to about three hours, so it positively affected my project,” said Vignali.

The system has 10 teraflops of theoretical speed and 1.5 terabytes of memory. Translation: It is equal to between 200 to 400 times the memory of a typical home laptop computer.
