Porting a Particle-in-Cell Code to Exascale Architectures

By Nils Heinonen on behalf of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility As part of a series aimed at sharing best practices in preparing applications for Aurora, we highlight researchers’ efforts to optimize codes to run efficiently on graphics processing units. Take advantage of upgrades being made to high-level, non-machine-specific libraries and programming models Developed in […]

 Preparing for Exascale: ALCF’s Aurora Early Science Program and Visualizing Cancer’s Spread

Scientists are preparing a cancer modeling study to run on Argonne’s upcoming Aurora supercomputer before it goes online in 2022. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory will be home to one of the nation’s first exascale supercomputers – Aurora is scheduled to arrive in 2022. To prepare codes for the architecture and scale of […]

Continuous Integration: The Path to the Future for HPC

By Rob Farber on behalf of the Exascale Computing Project The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is investing heavily in software for the forthcoming exascale systems as can be seen in the many tools, libraries and software components that are already freely available for download via the Extreme-Scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S). In order for these software […]

Meet the Frontier Exascale Supercomputer: How Big Is a Quintillion?

Are all comparisons so odious, really? Some can illuminate, some can awe. HPE-Cray has put out an infographic about its Frontier exascale supercomputer, the U.S.’s first, scheduled to be shipped to Oak Ridge National Laboratory later this year. It’s got interesting comparisons that shed light on how big a quintillion is. Make that 1.5 quintillion, […]

‘Intel Is Back’: Gelsinger Delivers Upbeat Update, Expanded Manufacturing in U.S., Europe

New Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger delivered an upbeat corporate update this afternoon in the form of a webinar that emphasized Intel’s integrated device manufacturing, “IDM.2.0” strategy for manufacturing and product development that combines the company’s internal network of factories with third-party outsourced capacity and new Intel foundries in the U.S. and Europe. “As I hope […]

Gelsinger Speaks: Intel’s New CEO Debuts Today – What Will He Say?

Speculation abounds about Pat Gelsinger’s first public appearance as CEO of Intel at a webinar (5 pm Eastern Time) today that will capture close attention from a host of the company’s core audiences: customers, business partners, employees, industry and financial analysts – and the HPC community. The webinar, confidently called “Intel Unleashed: Engineering the Future,” […]

Stop the Lab Worship: Commercial HPC is Sexy, Too

There’s a trend in the data storage world to call out a growing “divide” between HPC and enterprise storage. We believe that’s an oversimplification. What’s worse, it reinforces popular myths coursing through the HPC landscape that revel in what we call “lab worship” at the expense of more mainstream enterprise customers.  

10 Research Projects Granted Access to Pawsey Centre for Extreme Scale Readiness Program

Perth, Australia – March 16, 2021 – Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, the Tier1 supercomputing research facility located in Perth, Western Australia, is establishing the first Australia’s research platform for extreme scale computing by granting access to Pawsey Centre for Extreme scale Readiness (PaCER) program to 10 research groups. The PaCER projects represent collaborations between ten Australian universities, […]
