Allinea tools to unleash research potential for Flemish supercomputer users


12 May 2016 Warwick - The Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC) is helping scientists and researchers to unleash their potential and accelerate a host of important supercomputer based discoveries using tools from Allinea, a provider of software for developing and optimizing high performance code. Allinea's software tools will be used to speed up code performance and results for users of its state of the art new machine for High Performance Computing (HPC) based research. The new Tier-1 TOP500 NEC cluster is expected to go live in October 2016, replacing the previous Tier-1 and representing Belgium's largest investment in HPC to date.

The supercomputer will be hosted at KU Leuven, one of five Flemish University Associations who manage the virtual centre, alongside the Flemish Research Foundation (FWO). VSC Tier-1 project leader, Ingrid Barcena, stated: "Our investment in new hardware establishes the VSC as a key site for funded HPC research but the unique selling point for our centre will be our outstanding support for users in developing faster code that delivers more science."

Since 2007, thousands of academic researchers and industrial users have accessed VSC to speed up their ground-breaking work in developing new materials, drugs and weather and climate research. Ingrid Barcena continued: "Allinea Forge will be central to our role in enabling faster research as its debugger and profiler are easy enough for users to understand important aspects such as what's happening with memory resources and computation. This will help researchers to be more productive on a system which is already three times more powerful than the one it will be replacing. Altogether, this presents exciting potential for our current users to make research efficiency gains and to demonstrate the true potential of HPC in non-traditional fields such as social science, Big Data and industry."

CEO and Founder of Allinea, David Lecomber, commented: "We are delighted to be supporting VSC in providing better education to its users around code efficiency. The fact of the matter is, without visibility of code performance, researchers cannot get the full value from HPC. By appreciating how their code makes a difference to project delivery, researchers can achieve more for less cost. By underlining this best practice, VSC's approach is one that is refreshing and makes great economic sense."
