Challenges for Free Open Source Software applications on Linux Supercomputers - Christian Kuelker, ETH Lab

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most supercomputers (SC) run with free open source software? Right! So why worry? The fact is that the most popular OS on SC is Linux! Unix is gone - everything is fine? Wrong! What is with the user applications and layers in between or with the OS on accelerators? The run for exascale SC has just started, most applications of today struggle to exploit the computational power of tomorrow.

The lecture will focus on FOSS user applications & the Linux OS and its struggle in competition with proprietary solutions in the unique world of High Performance Computing. It describes specific demands and rules of the academic world in its need for highest execution speed & computational power.
