This video provides a basic introduction to supercomputing, scientific computing, and high performance computing (HPC).
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.

Sierra, LLNL’s next-generation supercomputer, is projected to provide four to six times the sustained performance and be at least seven times more powerful than Sequoia.
Work is moving fast and furious in the Livermore Computing Complex, where siting and installation for Sierra is kicking into high gear.
Application developers are partnering with supercomputing experts and hardware vendors to ready a stable of mission-critical applications for the next generation of computing architectures, including LLNL’s Sierra supercomputer.
HPC Cluster Engineer Academy is a paid internship that will give you direct experience with running and maintaining high performance computing (HPC) systems.
LLNL computer scientists were among the attendees and speakers at a recent meeting to discuss performance portability across the Department of Energy’s large upcoming advanced architecture supercomputer procurements.
