Length: 2 pages
Propelled by a vision of HPC-cloud and HPC-enterprise convergence, Cray’s Shasta architecture will underpin America’s first three exascale supercomputers, including the just announced 1.5-exaflops El Capitan system headed for DOE NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2022.
Catalyst UK Announcement Bolsters Arm Processor-Based HPC Ecosystem in Europe
Alex Larzelere, Bob Sorensen, Earl Joseph, Steve Conway and Alex Norton
On April 16, 2018, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) in conjunction with SUSE and Arm teamed up with three leading UK universities to form the Catalyst UK program with the objective of accelerating the adoption of HPC by industry in the UK. The three-year program will center on the installation of an Arm processor-based supercomputer deployment spread across the University of Edinburgh, the University of Bristol, and the University of Leicester, due to be completed in summer 2018. In addition, the program is looking to reach out to UK industry to jointly develop Arm-based applications and workflows. Hyperion Research believes this effort is an important indicator of the UK’s commitment to building an indigenous HPC ecosystem centered on Arm processors, and one that could have wider implications for bolstering Arm-based HPC adoption in future European HPC designs.
