Fault Tolerance/Resilience at Petascale/Exascale: Is it Really Critical? Are Solutions Necessarily Disruptive?
SESSION: Fault Tolerance/Resilience at Petascale/Exascale: Is it Really Critical? Are Solutions Necessarily Disruptive?
EVENT TYPE: Panels
TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Alice Koniges
Panelists:Franck Cappello, Marc Snir, Bronis De Supinski, Al Geist, John Daly, Ana Gainaru, Satoshi Matsuoka
This panel will explore important questions regarding fault tolerance and resilience in present petascale supercomputers and future exascale systems. For domain scientists, application developers, system administrators, students, and researchers, it is of utmost importance to understand what fault tolerance/resilience experts are observing today on the latest generation of petascale systems and are projecting for future exascale systems. Unfortunately, there is no common view of this problem. The degree of criticality of the problem, the way to approach it (engineering problem versus a research problem), the feasibility and applicability of classic and disruptive techniques are raising controversies. In order to expose the diversity of the community perception on this problem, the panel will gather six experts with differing opinions on key questions. These experts will present their background, experience, and actions in this domain and respond to questions from the panel chair and the audience.
