Arm in HPC and the Data Center - A Beginning
The current #1 system on the top500.org site is a system called Fugaku, from Fujitsu and installed in the Riken computer center in Japan. A rack of that system at SC09 was rated the #1 energy efficient supercomputer. In addition to Fujitsu and the A64FX processor, there are a number of emerging Arm-based server designs from our partners. Brent will talk about the landscape from Arm’s perspective with a focuse on why this change and why now. Arm designs are just getting started and the future promises strong competition which will benefit the community
About the Speaker
Senior Director for HPC, Arm
Brent is a long time member of the HPC community with the interesting “twist” that he’s also an entrepreneur. Half his career has been spent working on HPC and parallel computing at the DOE National Labs and the other half in starting up companies to go make changes happen quicker. His past projects include the “Attack of the Killer Micros” at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the both Bluegene (IBM) and Lustre (Cluster File Systems). He started the Student cluster competition at SC07 in Reno. In 2010, he started and was CEO of Whamcloud – working with the Lustre file system and team to keep that technology in play for HPC.
Brent is deeply engaged in changing HPC for the better in helping Arm technologies make their way into the community.
