The 10th Annual Computing Grand Challenge campaign awarded more than 16 million CPU-hours per week to projects that address compelling, large-scale problems.
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.
Sequoia is one of the most efficient systems in the world for processing extremely vast (petabyte and exabyte-size) data sets.
