The path to exascale by 2020 is certainly achievable, and Intel is supporting organizations across the globe as they attempt to be first over the line. If Asia is to continue leading the charge, then hurdling the challenges posed by energy constraints and adopting and identifying the latest technologies will make the journey much easier.
Argonne National Labs is developing Argo, a prototype exascale operating system.
The all-new Print ‘n Fly Guide to SC13 in Denver is an in-flight magazine custom tailored for your journey to the Mile-High city at SC13. With in-depth features on Exascale, high-performance networks, and the history of the SC conference, Print ‘n Fly also has pointers to the best restaurants and bars in Denver.
If countries in Asia are going to be successful in being the first to develop exascale systems, then technological breakthroughs are also going to be vital. An ability to increase processor performance is critical, which means developers must constantly look at ways to enhance memory technology, interconnect and integrate new functions into the processor, reduce power consumption, identify innovative cooling techniques, and identify new technologies delivering increased flexibility to software developers.
