NEIS-P2 Component 1 Final Reports


The NEIS-P2 Component 1 effort concluded in Summer 2013.  The participating PRAC science teams worked to make improvements to their code implementation to enable them to realize the full potential of the Cray XE6/XK7 system. Their efforts included scaling applications to large core counts on general-purpose CPU nodes and large scale storage, effectively using accelerators, using general purpose and accelerated nodes in a single coordinated simulation, and enhancing application flexiblity for more effective, efficient use of systems.
