5 Apr 2016 Warwick - Allinea Software, a provider of software tools for developing and optimizing code on high performance computers, is helping weather and climate researchers to adapt advanced weather models, to better exploit today's technology capability and get ready for future platforms. The company addressed leading climatologists and meteorologists on best practices for scalable code development at the 4th ENES HPC Workshop on the 6th-7th April 2016. The session referenced the application of Allinea's tools across over 20 weather and climate customers worldwide.
Allinea's VP Product Management, Mark O'Connor commented: "As the complexity of weather modelling increases, the industry is witnessing a huge growth in demand for both computing power and energy consumption. We are educating researchers around new and smarter approaches to writing more energy efficient and sustainable code and achieving faster simulations."
Mark O'Connor continued: "Much of the meteorology code used today has been developed over generations by many contributors. Optimizing this work to run efficiently for ours and future generations provides huge capability benefits. Our unique toolset lets researchers study the performance of code at scale. They can then easily adapt it to achieve more from the HPC systems they use now, whilst getting ready for tomorrow's exascale capabilities."
