DOE to Field Pre-Exascale Supercomputers Within Four Years

January 16, 2013

The national labs at Oak Ridge, Argonne and Lawrence Livermore are banding together for their next refresh of supercomputers. In late 2016 or early 2017, all three Department of Energy (DOE) centers are looking to deploy their first 100-plus petaflop systems, which will serve as precursors to their exascale machine further down the line. The labs will issue a request for proposal (RFP) later this year with the goal of awarding the work to two prime subcontractors. Read more…

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…
