Scalable HPC Software – “It Takes a Village”

SESSION: Tuesday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 1:40PM - 2:20PM


Speaker(s):Mike Trutt

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


In today’s competitive world, High Performance Computing (HPC) requires software that can scale from just a few cores up to thousands. This requires a diversity of talent and skills that promote the creation of scalable software that maximizes utilization of available resources.
There are several steps to creating scalable HPC software. Whether the application requires thousands of cores (like Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)) or is limited to a few dozen cores (such as a real-time signal processing platform), whether the hardware is commodity or custom, the discipline and principles for what makes software scale remain the same.
Northrop Grumman’s approach to producing scalable HPC software begins with modeling and simulation activities that feed software design requirements. The software in turn is designed for scalability, including such factors as middleware, scientific libraries, and benchmarking. Agile management can be key, as such approaches allow for accurate planning and course correction. Through cross-discipline interaction and training across the software lifecycle, scalable HPC software can enable today’s endeavors in an increasingly competitive world.
