Post Video: NASA Advanced Computing Environment for Science and Engineering


In this video, Dr. Rupak Biswas from NASA presents: NASA Advanced Computing Environment for Science and Engineering.Recorded at theNational HPCC conference 2012 in Newport.
In addition to providing production supercomputing cycles to NASA scientists and engineers, HECC is also responsible as the Agency's expert in evaluating emerging supercomputing technologies and maturing the most appropriate ones into the production environment. For instance, HECC has 200 of the latest GPUs from Nvidia, several of which are integrated directly into Pleiades. GPUs can be an extremely efficient way to process massive amounts of observational data. But other accelerator technologies are being critically evaluated as well. One interesting option is Intel's Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture that offers a critical advantage over GPUs in that code conversions to CUDA or OpenCL are not required to run applications ' only compiler directives. However, full utilization of MIC may require code modifications. HECC is also investigating other advanced IT technologies such as cloud computing for science and engineering applications, collaborative environments such as the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX), special-purpose hardware/software solutions for Big Data analysis, and quantum computing for difficult non-polynomial time optimization problems. The overall goal is for HECC to provide a consolidated bleeding-edge environment for all of NASA's computational and analysis requirements.
