3D Supernova Simulations on Jaguar

In an effort to measure the size of the universe, researchers are using the Jaguar supercomputer at ORNL to simulate the explosions of white dwarf star supernova. The physics of supernova explosions is something astrophysicists have been trying to figure out for about 50 years now,” said Stan Woosley, principal investigator of an Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) project and professor of astrophysics at the University of California–Santa Cruz. “It is an...

The Rise of Object-Based File Systems for HPC

Comparing various aspects of Lustre and PanFS, Anil Patrick R from TechTarget India looks at objects-based file systems as the basis for Exascale supercomputers. PanFS does compete with Lustre in the research and university HPC arenas, but Panasas seems to have its crosshairs on public sector and commercial applications. “Our approach is to take object-storage architecture...
