Evolving Scientific Computing at Argonne

Over at Argonne, John Spizzirri writes that the Lab has helped advance the boundaries of high-performance computing technologies through the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF). “Realizing the promise of exascale computing, the ALCF is developing the framework by which to harness this immense computing power to an advanced combination of simulation, data analysis, and machine learning. This effort will undoubtedly reframe the way science is conducted, and do so on a global scale.”

Report: Exascale Software Development Project on Track

Software development for future DOE Exascale machines is on track, according to a new Report. While the first Exascale machine is not slated for delivery to Argonne until 2021, ongoing efforts continue towards the monumental task of preparing applications to run 50x faster than possible today. “Software Technology is a key focus area of the ECP and represents the key bridge between Exascale systems and the scientists developing applications that will run on those platforms.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at the New Coral-2 RFP for Exascale Computers

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the new Department of Energy’s RFP for Exascale Computers. “As far as predictions go, Dan thinks one machine will go to IBM and the other will go to Intel. Rich thinks HPE will win one of the bids with an ARM-based system designed around The Machine memory-centric architecture. They have a wager, so listen in to find out where the smart money is.”

With Exascale Looming, this is an Exciting Time for Computational Science

In this video from the 2017 CGSF Review Meeting, Barbara Helland from the Department of Energy presents: With Exascale Looming, this is an Exciting Time for Computational Science. “Helland was also a presenter this week at the ASCR Advisory Committee Meeting, where she disclosed that the Aurora 21 Supercomputer coming to Argonne in 2021 will indeed be an exascale machine.”
