Programming and Managing Systems At Scale
SESSION: Programming and Managing Systems At Scale
EVENT TYPE: Panels
TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM
SESSION CHAIR: Alice Koniges
Panelists:Chad Harrington, Don Maxwell, William Kramer, Michael Jackson, Larry Kaplan, Morris Jette, John Hengeveld
In "Programming and Managing Systems at Scale," an all-star roster of software and hardware providers as well as industry experts from the world's largest supercomputing centers will discuss how system architecture must be re-engineered in order to reach the scales the industry is capable of today and going forward. The age of exascale computing is fast approaching, but for that future to become fully realized, current performance obstacles - such as the inefficiencies of diagnosing failures around network, storage and single-threaded programs - must be overcome. The panel, which includes leading experts from Titan, Blue Waters, Adaptive Computing, SchedMD, Intel and Cray, will discuss how refining architectural techniques will provide the necessary foundation to achieve exascale computing. Panelists will share how to conquer the new frontier in supercomputing technology with lessons learned from operating some of the world's most powerful and fastest supercomputers - Titan and Blue Waters.
