Join HPE TODAY As We Discover the power of 18 zeros on Exascale Day
Exascale computing refers to computing systems capable of at least one exaflop or a billion billion calculations per second (1018). That is 50 times faster than the most powerful supercomputers being used today and represents a thousand-fold increase over the first petascale computer that came into operation in 2008.
An exascale computer is one that can perform a quintillion, or 1018, floating point operations per second (FLOPS). That’s a billion billion—or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. To put that number in perspective, the Milky Way galaxy is 1 quintillion kilometers wide, and it would take 40 years for 1 quintillion gallons of water to flow over Niagara Falls. Further, you’d need every single person on earth calculating 24 hours a day for more than four years to do what an exascale supercomputer can do in 1 second. The concept of exascale computing, in sheer numbers, is mind boggling.
HPE Cray exascale supercomputers are the next frontier of supercomputing systems and have been redesigned for HPC, AI, modeling and simulation, Big Data analytics, and converged workloads.The new integrated system architecture delivers performance at scale across diverse, complex workloads, with more powerful options for compute and software
Join us for an engaging dialogue with leading industry supercomputing experts as we discover the power of 18 zeros on Exascale Day. We will partake in engaging dialogue with leading industry supercomputing experts. From predicting natural disasters that can save lives, to extracting more from sustainable energy sources, exascale supercomputing can solve the world’s biggest problems.
Let’s celebrate science and the impact supercomputing has in our everyday life. And let’s look forward as we must always continue to push boundaries to take on what’s next!
Mark your calendar and join us on October 18th AT 10 AM PDT to Discover the power of 18 zeros on Exascale Day.
Topics will include how The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) leverages HPE supercomputing solutions to enhance its ability to model violent wildfires and ultimately save property and lives.
Also how HPE supports visionaries like Jonathan and Carnegie Clean Energy and how the company is using supercomputing to solve the challenges in capturing it.
You’ll hear from Dr. Jerome Baudry as he recounts his journey accelerating drug discovery on the COVID-19 frontlines. Victories, setbacks, and insights, and how supercomputing reduces the time required to study critical stages of drug design.
How HPE tripled the performance and enhancement of energy efficiency in the new supercomputer at National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Also, you’ll hear from BRONSON MESSER Director of Science, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at ORNL as he discusses how HPE is delivering Frontier to Oak Ridge National Lab, accelerating innovation in science and technology and helping maintain US leadership in high-performance computing and artificial intelligence.
Lastly, Prof. Rick Stevens with Argonne National Laboratory will talk about how his team is using deep learning to help move science closer to curing cancer with Cray’s power.
