Argonne and HPE unveiled a new testbed supercomputer that will enable scientists and developers to test and optimize software codes and applications for the forthcoming exascale supercomputer, Aurora.
Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has awarded Codeplay a contract implementing the oneAPI DPC++ compiler, an implementation of the SYCL open standard software, to support AMD GPU-based high-performance compute (HPC) supercomputers.
Now open for applications, Argonne’s Margaret Butler Fellowship in Computational Science offers an opportunity for one postdoc to work at the forefront of scientific computing at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility.
George Slota, a computer scientist at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been granted a prestigious National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award to develop approaches to matching exascale computers with petascale datasets.
Kalyan R S Perumalla is a Distinguished Research and Development Staff Member at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, whose work on reversible computing for exascale computers also provides insights applicable to next generation programming.
Researchers nationwide are building the software and applications that will run on some the world’s fastest supercomputers. Among them are members of DOE’s Exascale Computing Project who recently published a paper highlighting their progress so far.
Globus, a leading research data management service, reached a huge milestone by breaking the exabyte barrier. While it took over 2,000 days for the service to transfer the first 200 petabytes (PB) of data, the last 200PB were moved in just 247 days. This rapidly accelerating growth is reflected by the more than 150,000 registered users who have now transferred over 120 billion files using Globus.
The Department of Energy is supporting the development of both conventional exascale supercomputers and quantum computers. Each provide benefits that could transform scientific research.
The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility recently hosted a workshop to help researchers advance code development efforts for Argonne’s upcoming exascale system, Aurora.
