The INCITE program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains.
A group of researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory explored the biological functions of microbial communities with high-performance computing.
Buddy Bland, project director at the OLCF, has been named one of HPC Wire’s “People to Watch” in 2015. Bland is recognized for his 30-year-career contributions in high-performance computing.
Jack Wells, OLCF director of science, was recently invited to be the keynote speaker of an OpenACC workshop at the University of Houston.
At the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility computer scientists Devesh Tiwari and Saurabh Gupta see laziness—a changed perception that reduces the frequency of application-level checkpoints—as increasingly important in recovering from computer failures on larger and faster machines.
The U.S. Department of Energy has signed a contract with IBM to bring a next-generation supercomputer to ORNL. The OLCF’s new hybrid CPU/GPU computing system, Summit, will be delivered in 2018.
When the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility replaced its Jaguar supercomputer with Titan, not only did it expand its computing speed tenfold, it also saved on the electric bill.
The OLCF-organized series “Extreme Scale Supercomputing with the Titan Supercomputer,” chaired by Jack Wells, director of science, brought together Titan users in 24 conference sessions amounting to 540 minutes.
When the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility upgraded its Jaguar supercomputer to the Cray XK7 CPU/GPU hybrid system known as Titan, the center knew that upgrades to its data analysis and visualization resources were necessary to complement Titan’s more than 20 petaflops of computing power.
By adding a graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerator to the 16-core central processing unit (CPU) on each node, the OLCF substantially increased Titan’s computing capability, enabling INCITE researchers to reach unprecedented science achievements.
