Achieving 50-100 times performance increase on real applications over today’s most powerful HPC platforms, such as Sequoia, as quickly and energy efficiently as possible, will force fundamental changes in all computer components. To reach this goal, we are developing new algorithms and tools that help researchers address these complexities and fully exploit the systems’ performance. We are also partnering with industry experts to develop well-coordinated solutions to hardware and software design challenges. View content related to Extreme Computing.
Supercomputing ‘18 (SC18), held Nov. 11–16 in Dallas, broke records for attendees and exhibitors and saw LLNL once again make its presence felt on the world’s biggest HPC stage.
On October 26, 2018, the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration, LLNL, and industry partners officially unveiled Sierra, one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, at a dedication ceremony to celebrate the system’s completion.
