Ensuring NERSC users remain productive in the Exascale era: Cori - a
pre-exascale high-performance computing platform 

Abstract:

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center is
the high-end scientific production computing facility for the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science (SC). NERSC provides large-scale, state-of-the-art computing, storage, and networking for more than 4,500 users that encompass the DOE’s unclassified research programs in many science areas. With the coming changes in computer
architecture, it is essential that NERSC works to ensure that its users remain productive by preparing them for advanced many-core architectures. In this talk we describe our strategy for doing so, and
 will introduce NERSC's next supercomputer, Cori, a Cray XC system featuring the Intel Knights Landing Architecture.
