Taming Heterogeneity in HPC – The DEEP-ER take

Norbert Eicker from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre presented this talk at the SAI Computing Conference in London. “The ultimate goal is to reduce the burden on the application developers. To this end DEEP/-ER provides a well-accustomed programming environment that saves application developers from some of the tedious and often costly code modernization work. Confining this work to code-annotation as proposed by DEEP/-ER is a major advancement.”

Video: DEEP-ER Project Moves Europe Closer to Exascale

In this video from ISC 2016, Estela Suarez from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre provides an update on the DEEP-ER project, which is paving the way towards Exascale computing. “In the predecessor DEEP project, an innovative architecture for heterogeneous HPC systems has been developed based on the combination of a standard HPC Cluster and a tightly connected HPC Booster built of many- core processors. DEEP-ER now evolves this architecture to address two significant Exascale computing challenges: highly scalable and efficient parallel I/O and system resiliency. Co-Design is key to tackle these challenges – through thoroughly integrated development of new hardware and software components, fine-tuned with actual HPC applications in mind.”

EXTOLL Deploys Immersion Cooled Compute Booster at Jülich

Today Extoll, the German HPC innovation company, announced that is has it has successfully implemented its new GreenICE immersion cooling system at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre. As part of the DEEP Dynamical Exascale Entry Platform project, GreenICE was developed to meet the need for increased compute power, density, and energy efficiency.
