Part of the novelty of this project is the use of the NERSC
computer cluster to run large-scale data assimilation problems," said Wu.
The system will provide over two petaflops of peak performance for NERSC
The acceptance test included a 14-day availability test during which a select group of NERSC
users were given full access to the Jacquard cluster to thoroughly test the entire system in production operation.
The 400G network will provide NERSC
with uninterrupted connectivity during its transition to a new site located on the main campus of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California.
announcement highlights IBM's dominance of The TOP500 List(1), published today by researchers at the University of Tennessee and the University of Mannheim in Germany.
researcher has reported doing a calculation in 18 minutes using FeffMPI on the NERSC
IBM SP2 cluster that would have taken 10 hours before.
will work with IBM to develop computer benchmarks to measure the effectiveness of the SP in production environments.
Examples of customers in the research sector are Deltares, SINTEF, NTNU and NERSC
and Berkeley Lab The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC
) is the primary high-performance computing facility for scientific research sponsored by the U.
For example, NERSC
will be building Cori, a new Intel Knights Landing supercomputer that will be operational in mid-2016.
has the option to purchase solid state storage integrated in the Cray XC supercomputer for extremely high performance burst IO.
The "Top500 Supercomputing Sites" list is compiled and published by Jack Dongarra, University of Tennessee; Hans Meuer, University of Mannheim (Germany); and Erich Strohmaier and Horst Simon from the NERSC
organization at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
