Course 2012-Cray XE6(1) at HLRS, Stuttgart
|Course Cray XE6(1)
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2012, Monday, April 2, 9:00 - Thursday, April 5, 16:30
||Cray XE6 Optimization Workshop
HLRS installed HERMIT, a 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 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 HERMIT.
HERMIT provides 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.
Monday-Wednesday, specialists from Cray will support you in
your effort porting and optimizing your application on our Cray XE6.
On Thursday, Georg Hager and Jan Treibig from RRZE will
present detailed information on optimizing codes
on the multicore AMD Interlagos processor.
HERMIT is available in Germany and Europe through this

HLRS is part of the
Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six
PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in
The mandate for the PATCs is as follows:
"The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced,
world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences."
This course is a PATC course, see also the PRACE Training
For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries,
the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program.
