In this video from the 2016 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference, Klaus Gottschalk from IBM presents: OpenPOWER Roadmap Toward CORAL.
“Last year IBM together with partners out of the OpenPOWER Foundation won two of the multi-year contracts of the US CORAL program. Within these contracts, IBM develops an accelerated HPC infrastructure and software development ecosystem that will be a major step towards Exascale Computing. We believe that the CORAL roadmap will enable a massive pull for transformation of HPC codes for accelerated systems. The talk will discuss the IBM HPC strategy, explain the OpenPOWER foundation and the show IBM OpenPOWER roadmap for CORAL and beyond.”
