Video: Preparing OpenSHMEM for Exascale

ornl

“Summit is Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s next high performance supercomputer system that will be based on a many core/GPU hybrid architecture. In order to prepare OpenSHMEM for future systems, it is important to enhance its programming model to enable efficient utilization of the new hardware capabilities (e.g. massive multithreaded systems, accesses different type memories, next generation of interconnects, etc). This session will present recent advances in the area of OpenSHMEM extensions, implementations, and tools.”

In this video, three participants in past SC Student Cluster Competitions describe how the event gives them valuable hands-on experience and has served as a career pathway.

Adaptive Computing Demonstrates Viewpoint Software at SC14

nate

“Moab Viewpoint is the next generation of Adaptive Computing’s admin portal. This enhanced Web-based graphical user interface enables easy viewing of workload— status, reporting on resource utilization and other system metrics. The Moab Viewpoint Portal plays an instrumental role in ensuring SLAs are met — a key component of Adaptive Computing’s Big Workflow vision — by allowing HPC administrators to maximize uptime and prove services were delivered and resources were allocated fairly.”

House Hearing: Supercomputing and American Technology Leadership

David Turek, VP, Technical Computing, IBM

“Today, we will hear from a distinguished panel of witnesses about the importance of high performance computing to American technological competitiveness, specifically focusing on the Department of Energy’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research program, also known as the “ASCR” program within the Office of Science.”
