@HPCpodcast: Horst Simon on DOE’s Post-Exascale HPC Vision – More Flexibility, More Vendor Diversity; the Start of a New Leadership-class Supercomputing Market?

Following DOE’s next-gen supercomputing Request for Information (RFI) issued last week, we discussed what it all may mean with Dr. Horst Simon, Special Advisor to the Laboratory Director at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and co-editor of the TOP500 list since 2000. He takes us through the current (though fungible) state of DOE’s post-exascale vision, the implications of an Advanced Computing Ecosystem (ACE) outlined in the RFI and the possible emergence of a new, more vendor-diverse leadership-class systems market.

DOE Document Reveals Next-Gen Supercomputing Strategy: A Move to More Modular, Faster Upgrade Cycles

Less than a month after its Frontier system broke the exascale performance barrier and won the no. 1 supercomputing world ranking, the U.S. Department of Energy today issued an RFI revealing its strategic thinking for the next generation of leadership-class supercomputers extending out to 2030. The documentis calls for “the development of an approach that […]
