With the LLNL-managed FastForward program, technical experts from seven national labs are working with five companies to accelerate the R&D of critical technologies for extreme-scale computing. FastForward is funded by DOE’s Office of Science and NNSA.
One co-design example in LLNL’s history is the Hyperion project. In 2008, LLNL teamed with 10 computing industry leaders, with each one playing a vital role. Dell, Intel, QLogic, Mellanox, and Super Micro Computer built the processors and nodes and helped integrate the input/output system. QLogic, Cisco Systems, and Mellanox built the InfiniBand and Ethernet network components. DataDirect Networks, Sun Microsystems, and LSI created the storage hardware, while Red Hat was responsible for Linux testing and various system administration duties.
