A pathway to modern, collaborative science
The Department of Energy’s Integrated Research Infrastructure aims to empower researchers to meld DOE’s world-class research tools, infrastructure, and user facilities seamlessly and securely in novel ways to radically accelerate discovery and innovation. Envisioned in 2020 and beginning implementation in 2023, IRI is designed to address significant challenges of modern scientific discovery including management and exchange of massive amounts of data generated in the exascale era. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility are poised to meet the growing needs of DOE and the science community through several resources and programs.
Five years after its debut as the fastest supercomputer in the world, Summit remains a powerful and reliable instrument for scientific discoveries in artificial intelligence, energy, climate, health, and other areas with a direct impact on national security and global welfare. The Department of
Energy is extending Summit operations through October 2024, enabling researchers to pursue projects on one of the world’s leading AI-enabled open science supercomputing platforms.
The Advanced Computing Ecosystem (ACE) testbed is a unique OLCF capability providing a centralized sandboxed area in deploying heterogeneous computing and data resources and facilitating the evaluation of diverse workloads across a broad spectrum of system architectures. ACE is designed to fuel the cycle of productization of new HPC technologies, as applicable to the OLCF and DOE missions.
