LANL Studying HPE Apollo 80 System

September 1, 2020

LANL has recently begun evaluating the HPE Apollo 80 systems which feature the Fujitsu A64FX Arm processors.  As LANL senior scientist, Steve Poole, explains "Our drive towards more efficient HPC architectures and storage systems for mission applications is a distinguishing element of our HPC strategy and leadership."

The performance evaluation, sponsored by the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration’s Advanced Simulation and Computing program, will test Lab applications using SVE and HBM2 to achieve a higher percentage of peak performance, which is the goal of Los Alamos’ Efficient Mission Centric Computing Consortium (EMC3).
