Cray Centres of Excellence are successful in helping advance HPC, says John Levesque
13 Apr 2017 - In a Cray blog post John Levesque describes the Cray Centres of Excellence and how they help in promoting HPC. The success of the first centre at ORNL, resulted in the creation of Centres in Edinburgh, Scotland, and in Seoul, South Korea. Those were joined by several centres in the USA: at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) in Berkeley, California, and at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Centres of Excelence at research labs such as these provide Cray expertise to a wider range of the HPC community, says Levesque
ORNL earned renown as a premiere leadership computing facility. Along the way, members of Cray's Centre of Excellence at Oak Ridge contributed to two projects that earned the Gordon Bell Prize, which recognizes outstanding achievement in HPC. Levesque gives more examples in his blog.
