Scaling the Exa

June 3, 2010

The petascale era of supercomputing is barely underway, but the effort to reach the exascale level has already begun. The University of Tennessee's Jack Dongarra has been involved with an international project to develop software that will support exascale computing. We got a chance to speak with him before ISC and talk about the work being done. Read more…

Sometimes Accomplishment Is Starting Something New Rather than Finishing Something Old

June 2, 2010

Even as we gain a footing in the era of petaflops computing, we have set in motion the exploration of the undiscovered domain of exaflops computing. This year has seen the launching of multiple programs to develop the concepts, architectures, software stack, programming models, and new families of parallel algorithms necessary to enable the practical realization of exaflops capability prior to the end of this decade.
