OLCF Researchers Win R&D 100 Award for Flash-X Simulation Software

Oak Ridge, TN — A team that includes researchers from the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility recently received a U.S. Department of Energy R&D 100 Award for their work on Flash-X, a multiphysics simulation software package with applications that include modeling the collapse and explosion of a massive star core, better known as a supernova. […]

OLCF’s Doug Kothe on Pushing Frontier Across the Exascale Line and the Future of Leadership Supercomputers

Everyone involved in the Frontier supercomputer project got a taste of what a moonshot is like. Granted, lives were not on the line with Frontier as they were when Armstrong and Aldrin went to the moon in 1969. But in other ways there are parallels between the space mission and standing up Frontier, the world’s […]

Frontier Exascale Unveiling: ‘Breathtaking…, a Huge Leap Forward for Science, for Our Country”

It was a day of high pride at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a day to stop and take stock of the successful completion of a project based on an idea – exascale computing – that was begun more than 20 years ago. We’re talking about the official unveiling of Frontier, the country’s and the world’s […]

@HPCpodcast: At the HPC User Forum — A Frontier Visit, the State of Quantum and Supercomputing Center Staffing Woes

In this episode of the @HPCpodcast we focus on the HPC User Forum, run by industry analyst firm Hyperion Research and held last week at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The conference included an opportunity to get a viewing of Frontier, newly crowned as the world’s most powerful computer and the first to break the exascale barrier. You may have heard about it. The User Forum covered an array of topics, including the drama involved in getting Frontier over the exascale finish line in time for the mid-year TOP500 list. Also discussed was what comes next for leadership-class supercomputing, the state of quantum computing, and staffing problems at HPC sites that train graduates for careers in HPC and AI and who then jump to big tech companies for more money.

Exascale Computing Project’s Doug Kothe to Be Named Oak Ridge Associate Lab Director

Last month, we reported on management changes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP), including the upcoming retirement of Jeff Nichols, associate director of the lab with oversight over the National Center for Computational Sciences, the site of the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). Now we’ve learned […]
