OLCF staff members Veronica Vergara Larrea, Chris Fuson, and Wayne Joubert won an award for best paper at the 2015 Cray User Group Conference last month in Chicago.
Organizers from the OLCF, the University of Illinois Coordinated Science Laboratory and National Center for Supercomputing Applications, NVIDIA, and The Portland Group gathered last month for the next round of applications acceleration programming.
The OLCF played a significant role in an ORNL event to share knowledge and discuss the future development of the parallel file system, Lustre.
Researchers are working to integrate observation and modeling to create a better picture of Earth’s climate as a whole. One researcher committed to this goal is Dali Wang of DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Whereas laboratory experiments and various imaging methods could offer only hypotheses, for the first time OLCF”s Titan gave researchers precise predictions about nanocrystal surface development.
Researchers are using OLCF’s Titan supercomputer to try to get closer to producing sustainable fusion for electricity.
OLCF staff have invested heavily in making sure users can access data quickly while also taking steps to keep data safe.
The OLCF’s RAIT system allows incoming data to be striped across four tapes, but it also has an extra tape—called a parity tape—that can allow the data to be reconstructed in the event that a tape is damaged or lost.
