The Cray XC30 series is Cray’s next-generation supercomputing system. Known as the "Cascade" program while under development, the Cray XC30 system represents the culmination of a powerful industry collaboration and cutting-edge HPC research and development. Capable of sustained multi-petaflops performance on real-world applications, the Cray XC30 supercomputer features a hybrid architecture combining multiple processor technologies, a high performance network and a high performance computing-optimized operating system and programming environment.
Chapel is an emerging programming language designed to improve the programmability of large-scale parallel computer systems. An open-source effort led by Cray Inc. and supported by a rich community of collaborators, Chapel’s primary goal is to increase the productivity of high-end computer users by making it easier to write, read, modify, port, tune and maintain parallel programs.
OpenSFS is a non-profit technical organization focused on supporting high-end, open-source file system technologies and maintaining their open-source nature. The group is driving the parallel file system roadmap with an initial focus on the Lustre parallel file system.
OpenACC is a non-profit organization founded with the purpose of advancing directives-based programming methodology for enabling accelerators in hybrid HPC systems. Offloading specific loops and regions of code from the CPU to an attached accelerator can greatly improve performance.
