“Argonne National Laboratory is one of the labs helping to lead the exascale push for the nation with the DOE. We lead in a numbers of areas with software and storage systems and applied math. And we’re really focusing, our expertise is focusing on those new ideas, those novel new things that will allow us to sort of leapfrog the standard slow evolution of technology and get something further out ahead, three years, five years out ahead. And that’s where our research is focused.”
“We are excited that the H2020 SAGE Project gives us the opportunity to research and move HPC storage into the Exascale age,” said Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager, Seagate HPC systems business. “Seagate will contribute its unique skills and device technology to address the convergence of Exascale and Big Data, with an excellent selection of participants each bringing their own capabilities together to build the future of storage on an unprecedented scale.”
Can 3D-stacking technology topple the long-standing “memory wall” that’s been holding back HPC application performance? A new paper from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center written in collaboration with experts from Chalmers University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory concludes that it will take more than just the simple replacement of conventional DIMMs with 3D-stacked devices.
