MIT Lincoln Laboratory takes the mystery out of supercomputing
The introduction of multicore and manycore processors capable of handling highly parallel workflows is changing the face of high performance computing (HPC).
Many supercomputer users, like the big DOE labs, are implementing these next generation systems. They are now engaged in significant code modernization efforts to adapt their key present and future applications to the new processing paradigm, and to bring their internal and external users up to speed. For some in the HPC community, this creates unanticipated challenges along with great opportunities.
Here at MIT Lincoln Laboratory with its recently opened Supercomputer Center, the picture is a little different.
