Mobile technology for production-ready high-performance computing systems: The path of the Mont-Blanc project

Filipo Mantovani, Barcelona Supercomputing Center

23 Oct 2017, 16:30–18:00; Location: S2|02-C110

Since 2011 the EU Mont-Blanc project pushes the development of ARM-based compute platforms, following the vision of leveraging the fast growing market of mobile technology for performing scientific computation. The process started almost 5 years ago with the development of prototypes based on Android dev-kits and is now evolving beyond the research project, towards commercial computational platforms based not only on mobile SoCs, but also on server and HPC technology.

In this talk we will introduce the ARM-based prototypes deployed within the time frame of the project as well as the experience gained porting system software, performance analysis and debugging tools, and real HPC scientific applications. The goal of the talk is to give an overview of ARM based scientific computing from the Mont-Blanc perspective, supported by experience, lesson learned and test results.
