Livermore researchers have developed a toolset for solving data center bottlenecks. Flux offers a framework that enables new resource types, schedulers, and framework services to be deployed as data centers continue to evolve.
LLNL, IBM and Red Hat are combining forces to develop best practices for interfacing HPC schedulers and cloud orchestrators, an effort designed to prepare for emerging supercomputers that take advantage of cloud technologies.
CTO Bronis de Supinski discusses the integrated storage strategy of the future El Capitan exascale supercomputing system, which will have in excess of 2 exaflops of raw computing power spread across nodes.
A comprehensive understanding of the performance behavior of large-scale simulations requires the ability to compile, analyze, and compare measurements and contexts from many independent sources. Caliper, a general-purpose application introspection system, makes that task easier by connecting various independent context annotations, measurement services, and data processing services.
