Berkeley Lab Contemplates Stepping Stone to Exascale Supercomputer

Jan 8, 2013 |

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Berkeley Lab has recently begun installing Edison, the Cray supercomputer that will exceed two peak petaflops when its fully deployed in a couple of months. But the center is already prepping for its next-generation system, which is expected to be an order of magnitude more powerful. That supercomputer may be the center’s last big deployment prior to the exascale era.

ADIOS Ignites Combustion Simulations

Oct 29, 2009 |

A team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Georgia Tech, and Rutgers University developed the ADaptable I/O file System (ADIOS), an I/O middleware package that has shown great promise with leading fusion and astrophysics codes. Recently, ADIOS made its mark in the field of combustion.
