Energy Efficiency in the Software Stack — Cross Community Efforts

This report covers events at SC17 that focused on energy efficiency and highlights ongoing collaborations across the community to develop advanced software technologies for system energy and power management.

SC17 Panel: Energy Efficiency Gains From Software

In this video from SC17 in Denver, Dan Reed moderates a panel discussion on HPC Software for Energy Efficiency. “This panel will explore what HPC software capabilities were most helpful over the past years in improving HPC system energy efficiency? It will then look forward; asking in what layers of the software stack should a priority be put on introducing energy-awareness; e.g., runtime, scheduling, applications? What is needed moving forward? Who is responsible for that forward momentum?”

Energy Efficient Supercomputing

While large scale supercomputing centers continue to push the boundaries of the ability to process numerical information, either HPC like or Big Data like, a concern is the ability for the datacenter to power and cool such large installations. The new Cray XC Supercomputer is an energy efficient advancement to the traditional cluster.

World’s Most Energy Efficient Supercomputer Powered by AMD FirePro™

AMD powers the L-CSC cluster at the GSI research facility which achieved the number one position for most energy efficient supercomputers on the latest Green500™ List. The L-CSC cluster is installed at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH research facility in Darmstadt, Germany, and is powered by AMD FirePro™ S9150 server GPUs.
