Course 2011-Cray XE6(2) at HLRS, Stuttgart
|Course Cray XE6(2)
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2011, Wednesday, November 2, 9:00 - Friday, November 4, 16:30
||Cray XE6 Optimization Workshop
HLRS installs a first Cray XE6 system with AMD Interlagos processors
and a performance of 1 PFlop/s.
We strongly encourage you to port your applications to the
new architecture as early as possible.
To support such first effort we invite current and future users
to participate in special Cray XE6 Optimization Workshops.
With this course, we will give all necessary information
to move applications from the current NEC SX-9, the Nehalem cluster,
or other systems to the upcoming Petaflop system.
The Cray XE6 installed in 2011 will provide our users with a new
level of performance. To harvest this potential will require all our efforts.
We are looking forward to working with our users on these opportunities.
In this course, specialists from Cray will support you in
your effort porting and optimizing your application on our Cray XE6.
