Studying the Cosmic Dark Ages with Petascale Supercomputing


“All of these problems require simulations with extremely high dynamic range in space and time, complex physics (including radiation transport and non-equilibrium gas chemistry), and large simulation volumes. We use the Enzo code (, which has been modified to scale to large core counts on Blue Waters, which is the only machine available where the heavy data and communication needs can be satisfied.”

Satoshi Matsuoka Presents: A Look at Big Data in HPC


In this video from the DDN User Group at ISC’14, Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology presents: A Look at Big Data in HPC. “HPC has been dealing with big data for all of its existence. But it turns out that the recent commercial emphasis on big data, has coincided with a fundamental change in the sciences as well. As scientific instruments and facilities produce large amounts of data in an unprecedented rate, the HPC community is reacting to this, with revisiting architecture, tools, and services to address this growth in data.”
