HPC

We are interested in providing a common interface to High Performance Computers and Leadership Class Machines. Our first integration goal is the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), the primary scientific computing facility for the Office of Science in the U.S. Department of Energy. It provides computational resources and expertise for basic scientific research.

Edison is a Cray XC30, with a peak performance of 2.57 petaflops/sec, 133,824 compute cores, 357 terabytes of memory, and 7.56 petabytes of disk.

The first phase of Cori is a Cray XC  based on the Intel Haswell multi-core processor. The second phase will be based on the second generation of the Intel®  Xeon Phi™  family of products, called the Knights Landing (KNL) Many Integrated Core (MIC) Architecture.
