Video: NOAA Software Engineering for Novel Architectures (SENA) Project

noaaIn this video from the 2015 HPC User Forum, Leslie Hart presents: NOAA Software Engineering for Novel Architectures (SENA) Project.

“NOAA will acquire software engineering support and associated tools to re-architect NOAA’s applications to run efficiently on next generation fine-grain HPC architectures. From a recent procurement document: “Finegrain” architecture (FGA) is defined as: a processing unit that supports more than 60 concurrent threads in hardware (e.g. GPU or a large core-count device).”

SENA Overarching Goals

  • Prepare codes for a future production architecture
  • Monitor architectural evolution
  • Maintain codes in a way that subject matter experts can still modify the code
  • Monitor (and participate as appropriate) evolving standards
  • Codes should still be viable for current (traditional) architectures
  • It is expected that code optimizations will increase performance on traditional architectures
  • Develop expertise within NOAA

    RIch, the link to Leslie Hart’s slides point to something else . . .

    Thanks,
