SC17: Legion Seeks to Elevate HPC Programming

November 9, 2017

As modern HPC architectures become ever more complex, so too does the task of programming these machines. In the quest for the trifecta of better performance, portability and programmability, new HPC programming systems are being developed. The Legion programming system, a data-centric parallel programming system for writing portable high performance programs, is one such effort. Read more…

Optimizing Codes for Heterogeneous HPC Clusters Using OpenACC

July 3, 2017

Looking at the Top500 and Green500 ranks, one clearly realizes that most HPC systems are heterogeneous architecture using COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) hardware, combining traditional multi-core CPUs with massively parallel accelerators, such as GPUs and MICs. With processor frequencies now hitting a solid wall, the only truly open avenue for riding today the Moore’s law is increasing hardware parallelism in several different ways: more computing nodes, more processors in each node, more cores within each processor, and longer vector instructions in each core.

SC16 Preview: Modernizing, Modularizing Fortran Codes

November 9, 2016

The programming language Fortran has been in existence since 1957, and a large percentage of software that runs on HPC systems worldwide is written, at least in part, in Fortran. Since it has been in existence for so long, and so many scientists and engineers learned it early in their careers and have utilized it extensively, much of this code is not up to modern standards of software development.
