Frontier and the Oak Ridge Team are Celebrating Exascale Day

Exascale computing is transforming our ability to solve some of the world’s most difficult and important problems. On October 18, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is celebrating the fifth National Exascale Day. The holiday was created in 2019 as an initiative of DOE’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and Cray, […]

Exascale Day 2023: The Exascale Computing Era Is Here.

With the delivery of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) first exascale system, Frontier, in 2022, and the upcoming deployment of Aurora and El Capitan systems by next year, researchers will have the most sophisticated computational tools at their disposal to conduct groundbreaking research. Exascale machines can perform more than a billion billion calculations per […]

Exascale Day Video: How LLNL’s El Capitan Came to Be

With Exascale Day coming up tomorrow, we’re kicking off the annual observance with this video from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Once fully operational, the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) first exascale supercomputer will perform critical modeling and simulation functions to support America’s nuclear stockpile. But a system as large and complex….
