We are determining how to build future generations of supercomputers. We are actively exploring issues such as possible uses of persistent memory (non-volatile random access memory or NVRAM) and methods to reduce power consumption or to increase reliability while maintaining (or even reducing) cost and maintaining (or improving) performance. We are also closely interacting with industry through local initiatives and programs such as FastForward. Throughout these activities, we combine unique research capabilities with our prove track record of building and deploying reliable and productive large-scale systems.

Researchers develop innovative data representations and algorithms to provide faster, more efficient ways to preserve information encoded in data.
LLNL’s Computing Directorate will descend upon the 2019 Supercomputing Conference. Find us at tutorials, workshops, panels, poster/paper sessions (with a Best Paper finalist), and the Job Fair.
The NNSA’s first exascale supercomputer, El Capitan, will have a peak performance of more than 1.5 exaflops (1.5 quintillion calculations per second) and an anticipated delivery in late 2022.
