Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Last week at SC18 in Dallas, the Exascale Computing Project released a portion of the next version of collaboratively developed products that compose the ECP software stack, including libraries and embedded software compilers.

Mike Heroux, ECP Software Technology director, said in an interview at SC18 that the software pieces in this release represent new capabilities and, in most instances, are highly tested and quite robust, and point toward exascale computing architectures. Further, he emphasized that of key importance was the fact that an integrative approach had consolidated the products under one umbrella, allowing them to be built together very seamlessly.
