Getting to Exascale Day 2022 with an Exascale System Wasn’t Easy

Finally, after 15-plus years of intellectual strain (planning), bureaucratic wrangling (budgeting), technical toil (system building) and, probably, some tears, the HPC community has arrived at an Exascale Day, October 18 (1018), on which we actually have a certified exaFLOPS supercomputer: Frontier, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Exascale is no longer in the future, it’s here, […]

A Look Inside the AMD-HPE Blade that Drives Frontier, the World’s First Exascale Supercomputer

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  The new number 1 supercomputer in the world, the AMD-powered and HPE-built Frontier, is celebrated today, Exascale Day, as the world’s first exascale (a billion billion calculations per second) HPC system. Recognized at last spring’s ISC conference in Hamburg for having exceeded the exascale barrier, a display of the Frontier blade in HPE’s ISC booth was a focus of attention on the conference floor. We thought it would be interesting to sit down with two senior officials from AMD and HPE to talk about the Frontier blade, what’s in it, its design innovations and the anticipated, long-term impacts of the blade on leadership supercomputing and on systems used by the broader HPC industry.
