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.

Enabling Open Source High Performance Workloads with Red Hat

High performance workloads, big data, and analytics are increasingly important in finding real value in today's applications and data. Before we deploy applications and mine data for mission and business insights, we need a high-performance, rapidly scalable, resilient infrastructure foundation that can accurately, securely, and quickly access data from all relevant sources. Red Hat has technology that allows high performance workloads with a scale-out foundation that integrates multiple data sources and can transition workloads across on-premise and cloud boundaries.
