The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre continues to evolve and grow.  Recent developments at Pawsey include the new advanced technology testbed called Athena, as well as the expansion of the Zeus commodity Linux cluster.  The Athena testbed includes Intel Xeon Phi “Knight’s Landing” processors as well as Nvidia “Pascal” GPUs.

I will also touch on the longer term vision for Pawsey and the Federal infrastructure roadmap.
