Ongoing upgrades to the OLCF’s data storage services are expanding users’ opportunities to extract science from large datasets.
Optimizing compute jobs based on these separate and combined streams of information, however, can be challenging. Fortunately for staff and users at the OLCF, a new tool called the Grand Unified Information Directory for the OLCF (GUIDO) has been developed to enhance existing capabilities.
User support specialists recent made a new training video channel for current and prospective users to access training materials at any time.
Facility enhancements to accommodate Summit, the OLCF’s next leadership-class supercomputer, continue to proceed on schedule.
Recently, a cross-departmental team engaged in an ongoing process to make data transfer easier for OLCF users.
The OLCF developed Wraprun, an optimized job launching tool, to assist users of Titan that wish to run ensemble jobs.
A team led by OLCF’s Christos Kartsaklis has built a tool to help users to extract enough parallelism from their existing programs to take advantage of additional computational power.
The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility hosted its GPU hackathon October 19–23 at the Marriott hotel in downtown Knoxville.
A move from cold- to warm-water cooling is projected to lower the OLCF’s cooling costs by more than half, saving nearly a million dollars per year in total operating costs.
An article, published in the October 2015 issue of Nature Materials, provides an overview of recent advances in experimental imaging, data analytics, and high-performance computing that are enabling new opportunities for discovery and design of advanced materials.
