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.

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.
Lawrence Livermore heads to the ISC High Performance Conference (ISC19) in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 16–20. The event will draw more than 3,500 participants from the research and commercial communities, and 160 exhibitors will share the latest technology and products of interest to HPC developers and users. Be sure to follow LLNL Computing on Twitter with the #ISC19 hashtag.
The 2019 Department of Energy (DOE) Performance, Portability and Productivity meeting is slated for April 2–4, 2019, in Denver, CO, where attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and updates on performance portability—the ability for applications to be used effectively on different systems without the need for extreme customizations—across the DOE’s current and future supercomputers.
