LLNL Sierra: Supercomputing and Science on a Mission
Abstract:

We'll describe how Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) prepared a large existing application base for our recently deployed Sierra supercomputer, which is designed to harness over 17,000 NVIDIA V100 GPUs to tackle the nation's most challenging science and national security problems. We will discuss how this multi-year effort paid off with exciting possibilities for new science. We'll also outline using GPUs in our traditional HPC platforms and workflows is adding an exciting new dimension to simulation-based science, prompting LLNL to rethink how we perform future simulations as intelligent simulation. We'll give an overview of the application preparation process that led up to Sierra's deployment, as well as look at current and planned research aimed at riding the AI and machine learning waves in pursuit of game-changing science.
