Blue Waters Experiences, Observations and Projections for GPU use in Open, Scientific, Extreme Scale Research Systems
Abstract:

The "sustained Petascale" Blue Waters Supercomputer is the most powerful and productive supercomputer serving the entire academic and open science communities and the largest system Cray has ever created. Blue Waters is enabling "grand challenge" solutions for problems ranging from HIV and Ebola virus, to earthquake analysis, to severe weather, to the search for gravitational waves to the economics of climate change policy. The talk will discuss the architectural decisions for Blue Waters, cover experiences advanced research teams have using GPUs, highlight some of the efforts underway to expand use of GPUs and than draw observations for future generation systems that potentially would include GPUs.
