In this video from the GoingARM workshop at SC17, Filippo Mantovani from BSC describes the contributions of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center to the European Mont-Blanc project.

“Since 2011, Mont-Blanc has pushed the adoption of Arm technology in High Performance Computing, deploying Arm-based prototypes, enhancing system software ecosystem and projecting performance of current systems for developing new, more powerful and less power hungry HPC computing platforms based on Arm SoC. In this talk, Filippo introduces the last Mont-Blanc system, called Dibona, designed and integrated by the coordinator and industrial partner of the project, Bull/ATOS. He also talks about tests performed at BSC of the Arm software tools (HPC compiler and mathematical libraries) as well as the Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB) technique and the Multiscale Simulator Architecture (MUSA).”

Filippo Mantovani is senior researcher at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). He graduated in mathematics and holds a PhD in Computer Science from University of Ferrara, Italy. He has been a scientific associate at the DESY laboratory in Zeuthen, Germany, and at the University of Regensburg, Germany. He spent most of his scientific career in computational physics, computer architecture and high-performance computing, joining BSC’s Mont-Blanc project in 2013 and becoming in 2014 technical coordinator of the project.

In this video from SC17 in Denver, Pascale Bernier-Bruna from Atos describes the company’s innovative ARM-HPC technologies developed as part of the Mont-Blanc Project.
