Achieving 50–100 times performance increase on real applications over today’s most powerful HPC platforms, such as Sierra, as quickly and energy efficiently as possible, will force fundamental changes in all computer components. To reach this goal—and to prepare for future exascale systems—we are developing new algorithms and tools that help researchers address these complexities and fully exploit the systems’ performance. We are also partnering with industry experts to develop well-coordinated solutions to hardware and software design challenges. View content related to Extreme Computing.
LLNL Computing is home to world-class researchers in mathematics, computer science, and data sciences; preeminent facilities; and some of the most challenging problems in computational science. The convergence of these factors has proven to be the perfect blueprint for progress and innovation.
At LLNL, our mission is to anticipate the needs of the country. As the world’s technological capabilities evolve at an increasingly rapid pace, so do threats to the United States, particularly in the areas of energy and climate, environmental security, domestic and international security (including network and cyber security), nuclear security and counterterrorism, and space situational awareness.
