A second system, to be named Theta, will serve as an early production system for the ALCF.
Intel selected as prime contractor to deliver 180 petaflops supercomputer at the ALCF, marking the first time in nearly two decades that Intel is taking the prime contractor role in the delivery of a supercomputer.
is used for complex tasks such as assessing climate change and designing aerodynamic surfaces.
I was looking forward to being the ALCF commander because I loved the people I worked with and understand the airlift mission," Farmer said.
She transferred to the newly formed ALCF in 1981, making her the only original member remaining in the unit when it was deactivated.
According to ALCF Director, Michael Papka, "I/O is a huge issue for HPC.
We were optimistic that we would see a significant speedup, and a 6x application speedup out of the box on sequential I/O is impressive," said Bill Allcock, ALCF director of operations.
In May of 2010, researchers from SUNY at Stony Brook were studying computational fluid dynamics when the ALCF
reached the two billion processor-hour mark.
As part of The 2016 ALCF
Data Science Program, various leadership computing resources will give the program's product teams the ability to parse and analyze massive data sets generated from an increasing number of data centric applications.
Planned be delivered in the 2016, the second system, theta, will serve as an early production system for the ALCF
and will provide performance of 8.
The MOU recognizes areas of mutual interest to both organizations and brings numerous new research capabilities to AICS, which is sponsored by the Japanese government through the RIKEN research institute, and the ALCF
