When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
The Importance of a Scalable, Productive Software Ecosystem for the Supercomputing Marketplace
SESSION: Software Platforms
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 4:15PM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):David B. Wallace
ABSTRACT: A software ecosystem that is both scalable and productive is a critical component for efficient supercomputers. A complete software ecosystem allows a supercomputer to be more than the sum of its parts. Petascale systems of today require powerful interconnects, cutting-edge processors and advanced parallel file systems. Yet, without a software ecosystem seamlessly integrated into a supercomputer’s architecture, users cannot leverage the latest innovations in HPC. Cray has developed a complete software ecosystem built around its Cray Linux Environment – the operating system for the Company’s high-end supercomputers. This ecosystem includes Cray and 3rd party compilers, 3rd party ISV applications, sophisticated resource and job management systems, Cray optimized performance tools and libraries, and 3rd party debuggers with specialized scalable extensions. Cray will discuss the challenges and benefits of developing a complete software ecosystem and its importance in building productive multi-petaflop, and eventually, productive exascale systems.
