Video: Managing HPC Software Complexity with Spack

Greg Becker from LLNL gave this talk at the MVAPICH User Group. “Spack is an open-source package manager for HPC. This presentation will give an overview of Spack, including recent developments and a number of items on the near-term roadmap. We will focus on Spack features relevant to the MVAPICH community; these include Spack’s virtual package abstraction, which is used for API-compatible libraries including MPI implementations, package level compiler wrappers, and packages which modify other package’s build environments.”

Binary Packaging for HPC with Spack

Todd Gamblin from LLNL gave this talk at FOSDEM’18. “This talk will introduce binary packaging in Spack and some of the open infrastructure we have planned for distributing packages. We’ll talk about challenges to providing binaries for a combinatorially large package ecosystem, and what we’re doing in Spack to address these problems. We’ll also talk about challenges for implementing relocatable binaries with a multi-compiler system like Spack. “
