INCITE Releases Greatest Hits Compilation

Aug 4, 2011 |

The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) has been providing a diverse array of researchers with the ability to run petascale simulations on some of the world’s top systems. The group behind the effort released a report recently that highlighted some of the successes, offering a case for the power of simulation to advance science, industry and social goals like shifting to clean energy.

As Supercomputers Approach Exascale, Experts Wrestle with Big Data

Jul 21, 2011 |

The current generation of petascale supercomputers are generating enormous quantities of data, and creating unprecedented challenges in managing it. The next generation of multi-petaflop, and eventually exaflop supercomputers, will take these challenges to the next level. Galen Shipman, who heads the Technology Integration group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) talks about the data management technologies being employed at OLCF today and what will be needed to support their future exascale machines.

A Dark Matter for Astrophysics Research

May 31, 2011 |

Projects like the Sloan Digital Sky Survey have provided a wealth of cosmological data for scientists to explore in detail. However, making use of those terabytes — and generating far more data in the process of simulating and analyzing new concepts — is highlighting the bottlenecks for scientific computing at massive scale.
