April brings new webinar of the “HPC system & tools” series

The next session, organized by the RISC2 project, brings up for discussion ways to improve energy efficiency in high-performance computing clusters. It is scheduled for April 26th.

In high-performance computing centers, the associated energy consumption, costs, and CO2 emissions are pointed out as some of the obstacles to building bigger infrastructures that serve the exascale and post-exascale future.

In order to get around this constraint, vendors are relying on various pieces of hardware that help increase energy efficiency. However, to ensure that they actually have an effect, it is necessary that these pieces of hardware are fully used by the users’ applications. Otherwise there is a risk of having to limit the resources available to achieve energy savings – and this is the least desirable way to promote efficiency.

During the RISC2 project’s webinar, entitled “Improving energy-efficiency of High-Performance Computing clusters,” participants will focus on this challenge of energy consumption and on adopting strategies that enable them to address it, particularly through hardware.

The session is scheduled for April 26 at 3 p.m. and will feature interventions of Lubomir Riha and Ondrej Vysocky, both from the Infrastructure Research Laboratory of the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center.
