In this video from ISC’14, the DEEP and DEEP-ER Project teams describe their prototype hardware and software.

The DEEP consortium will develop a novel, Exascale-enabling supercomputing architecture with a matching SW stack and a set of optimized grand-challenge simulation applications. DEEP takes the concept of compute acceleration to a new level: instead of adding accelerator cards to Cluster nodes, an accelerator Cluster, called Booster, will complement a conventional HPC system and increase its compute performance. Together with a software stack focused on meeting Exascale requirements, comprising adapted programming models, libraries and performance tools, the DEEP architecture, will enable unprecedented scalability. The Cluster-level heterogeneity of DEEP will attenuate the consequences of Amdahl’s law allowing users to run applications with kernels of high scalability alongside kernels of low scalability concurrently on different sides of the system, avoiding at the same time over and under subscription. An extrapolation to millions of cores would take the DEEP concept to an Exascale level.”
