Berkeley Lab Contemplates Stepping Stone to Exascale Supercomputer

January 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. Read more…

ESnet Launches Architecture to Help Researchers Deliver on Data-Intensive Science

April 26, 2012

In order to help research institutions capitalize on the growing availability of high-bandwidth networks to manage their growing data sets, the DOE's Energy Sciences Network, known as ESnet, is working with the scientific community to encourage the use of a network design model called the “Science DMZ.” Leading the development of this effort is Eli Dart, a network engineer with previous experience at Sandia National Laboratories and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center. In this interview, Dart talks about the nature of the project and explains how such an architecture can help researchers. Read more…
