Podcast: SCR Scalable Checkpoint/Restart Paves the Way for Exascale

A software product called the Scalable Checkpoint/Restart (SCR) Framework 2.0 recently won an R&D 100 Award. In this episode, Elsa Gonsiorowski and Kathryn Mohror of LLNL discuss what SCR does, the challenges involved in creating it, and the impact it is expected to have in HPC. “SCR enables HPC simulations to take advantage of hierarchical storage systems, without complex code modifications. With SCR, the input/output (I/O) performance of scientific simulations can be improved by orders of magnitude.”
