    SC2000 Extremes

  • A New Frontier for SCxySC is not just about supercomputing, its where the latest wave of technology gets applied to real problems Louis Turcotte, gen. chair SC2000

    SC has been riding the CMOS wave88-92: Rise of the killer micro93-99: Emergence of the killer networksingle chip CMOS networks of the CM-5 and Paragon now the heart of clusters, gigabit ethernet, ...

    along with other emerging technologiesvisualization, haptics, ...Panel Goal: open your eyes to a new frontier

    SC2000 Extremes

  • Where is CMOS going?Not just Moores lawMicro Electical Mechanical Systems (MEMS)rich array of sensors are becoming cheap and tiny Imagine, all sorts of chips that are connected to the physical world and to cyberspace!

    SC2000 Extremes

  • We are seeing the first signs

    SC2000 Extremes

  • Commonality at the ExtremesPushing performance of available resources to solve problemsPushing the technological edgeComplex applicationsPackaging, Power ManagementLong runningCommunication CriticalSimplicityHighly Parallel Programming / OperationFaults, Failures, Availability

    SC2000 Extremes

  • Tapping Experience of SC CommunityExtensive instrumentation and measurement

    Extensive sensor development and use

    Wide-scale distributed computing

    Vast, embedded data sets

    Serious parallel Programming
