As CTO of Livermore Computing, de Supinski is responsible for formulating, overseeing, and implementing LLNL’s large-scale computing strategy, requiring managing multiple collaborations with the HPC industry and academia.
The Lab was already using Elastic components to gather data from its HPC clusters, then investigated whether Elasticsearch and Kibana could be applied to all scanning and logging activities across the board.
The Advanced Technology Development and Mitigation program within the Exascale Computing Project shows that the best way to support the mission is through open collaboration and a sustainable software infrastructure.
In a presentation delivered to the 79th HPC User Forum at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, LLNL's Terri Quinn revealed that AMD’s forthcoming MI300 APU would be the computational bedrock of El Capitan, which is slated for installation at LLNL in late 2023.
The utility-grade infrastructure project massively upgraded the power and water-cooling capacity of the adjacent Livermore Computing Center, preparing it to house next generation exascale-class supercomputers for NNSA.
As the U.S. welcomed the world’s first “true” exascale supercomputer, three predecessor machines for LLNL's future exascale system El Capitan managed to rank highly on the latest Top500 List of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
