To achieve ‘capable’ exascale requires a holistic approach that uses co-design and integration from Application Development, Software Technology, Hardware Technology and Exascale Systems.
Responsible for delivering science-based applications able to exploit exascale for high-confidence insights and answers to critical problems in national security, energy assurance, economic competitiveness, and health care.
Focuses on advanced system engineering development by vendors to produce capable exascale systems and test beds for research, co-design activities, and developing and optimizing applications and software.
Concentrates on developing a comprehensive and coherent software stack that will enable application developers to productively write highly parallel applications that can portably target diverse exascale architectures.
