Jack Dongarra on the Pending Disruptive Changes of the X-stack

This week, Scientific Computing is featuring an interview with Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee. Dongarra discusses the origin of the LINPACK benchmark and why multidimensional barriers to Exascale computing will force a disruptive change in the form, function and interoperability of future software infrastructure components.

As a number of recent studies make clear, technology trends over the next decade — broadly speaking, increases of 1000X in capability over today’s most massive computing systems, in multiple dimensions, as well as increases of similar scale in data volumes — will force a disruptive change in the form, function and interoperability of future software infrastructure components (I’ll call this the X-stack) and the system architectures incorporating them.

Dongarra has several talks on Exascale topics coming up at the ISC’13 conference, which takes place June 16-20 in Leipzig, Germany. Read the Full Story.
