Obama Budget Proposal Includes Exascale

Patrick Thibodeau writes that, for the first time, the 2012 budget proposal explicitly references “exascale.” If approved, the DOE will get $126 million for exascale development. The DOE budget had budgeted just over $24 million in 2011, but this was in context of “extreme scale” computing.

The DOE has not yet said how exascale funding will be used, but the supercomputing research community has active research efforts in progress. In the interim, DOE is now building 10 petaflop systems, such as the recently announced IBM system planned at Argonne National Laboratory.
