Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced it has expanded its collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to build LANL a new supercomputer in early 2023. The new supercomputer builds on to LANL’s latest, diverse high-performance computing (HPC) system designs, which include HPE-powered systems using the industry’s leading CPUs and GPUs to target a range of workloads and R&D. It will be based on novel technologies using the HPE Cray EX supercomputer, which is an HPC architecture built from the ground-up for next-generation supercomputing such as for exascale-class systems, and features the new Arm-based NVIDIA Grace CPU, designed for larger scale HPC and AI applications, which was announced today.
LANL’s new, advanced system will deliver overall performance and workflow efficiency, improving modeling and simulation workloads to help researchers unlock discoveries across climate, diseases, materials and even nuclear deterrence. Researchers and engineers will also use the system’s compute and AI-accelerated capabilities to expand and strengthen existing efforts in artificial intelligence and machine learning, which are becoming increasingly valuable in harnessing insights from complex data.
“HPE has a strong, ongoing collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to support LANL’s commitment to making significant contributions to the scientific community with advanced HPC systems using diverse architectures. These designs demonstrate the powerful flexibility and scale that HPE’s systems offer in supporting various CPU and GPU technologies built for tomorrow’s most demanding supercomputing workloads,” said Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager, HPC, at HPE. “We are pleased to continue collaborating with LANL to design a new system that offers greater performance, efficiency and workload optimization to target specific R&D needs and unlock a new level of innovation.”
