Contemporary High Performance Computing: From Petascale toward Exascale, Volume Two - Chapman & Hall/CRC Computational Science (Hardback)Jeffrey S. Vetter (editor)
- We can order this
HPC is used to solve a number of complex questions in computational and data-intensive sciences. These questions include the simulation and modeling of physical phenomena, such as climate change, energy production, drug design, global security, and materials design; the analysis of large data sets such as those in genome sequencing, astronomical observation, and cybersecurity; and the intricate design of engineered products, such as airplanes and automobiles.
This second volume of Contemporary High Performance Computing: From Petascale toward Exascale continues to document international HPC ecosystems, including the sponsors and sites that host them. Each chapter is punctuated with a site's flagship system and:Presents highlights of applications, workloads, and benchmarksDescribes hardware architectures, system software, and programming systemsExplores storage, visualization, and analyticsExamines the data center/facility as well as system statistics
Featuring pictures of buildings and systems in production, floorplans, and many block diagrams and charts to illustrate system design and performance, Contemporary High Performance Computing: From Petascale toward Exascale, Volume Two delivers a detailed snapshot of the rich history of practice in modern HPC. This book provides a valuable reference for researchers in HPC and computational science.

Praise for the First Volume
"Jeffrey S. Vetter has organized and edited a definitive state-of-the-practice volume on high-end high performance computing (HPC), as it exists right now. What is provided is an insider's view of major HPC ecosystems, in a world where petascale computing is the reality. ... Consistent editing and parallel presentations contribute to the usefulness of this volume. Numerous figures and tables complement the text. ... [It is] an important reference for the high-end HPC community."
