Scaling Applications to 100,000 Cores and Beyond on IBM Systems

J. FIER, J. ZAIS

Abstract


Breakthroughs in science will require ever increasing computer performance. But lack of efficient programming models and physical constraints such as power consumption are challenges that must be overcome to achieve petascale computing and beyond. IBM is addressing these challenges with a multi-dimensional approach, exemplified by the high-productivity Blue Waters system, the energy-efficient Blue Gene, and hybrid computing systems such as the “Roadrunner” project for Los Alamos National Laboratory.
