Supported by the Advanced Simulation and Computing program, the open-source Axom project focuses on developing software infrastructure components that can be shared by HPC applications running on diverse computing platforms.
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.
Spindle improves the library-loading performance of dynamically linked HPC applications. It plugs into the system’s dynamic linker and intercepts its file operations so that only one process (or other small amount) will perform the file operations necessary and share the results with other processes in the job.
Working extensively with open-source software such as Lustre and engaging with the broader open-source community is what computer scientist Chris Morrone enjoys most about his job, and it is one of the features that attracted him to LLNL in the first place.
