DCP has helped OLCF staff move 350 terabytes of data so far on behalf of some users, while other users have independently used dcp to copy much more.
At the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), users on the world’s most powerful supercomputer for open science, Titan, are routinely producing tens or hundreds of terabytes of data, and many predict their needs will multiply significantly in the next 5 years.
The OLCF has introduced the next generation of data management with Atlas, a new center-wide file system that delivers increased capacity, greater performance, and a new directory structure for OLCF computational users.
With its hybrid architecture featuring traditional CPUs alongside GPUs, Titan represents a revolutionary paradigm in high-performance computing’s quest to reach the exascale with only marginal increases in power consumption for the world’s leading systems.
The OLCF is working with Mentor Graphics, a leading electronic design automation company, to bring accelerated computing to a broader audience.
The OLCF recently relocated the center’s archive tape library to a centralized location with a more controlled environment, resulting in better overall availability and uptime for OLCF system users and better resiliency of the media.
Two new computing resources are being installed at the OLCF to enhance the user experience and maximize project outputs.
Nearly two dozen software tool developers gathered recently at ORNL to boost the integration of the award-winning ADIOS into their technologies.
EVEREST has provided researchers with the Forest Service Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center and their partners a unique view of maps used for detecting and tracking unexpected forest changes and disturbances.
The new system will feature 32 petabytes of storage and an aggregate bandwidth of 1TB/second, allowing it to better keep pace with the OLCF’s Titan.
