high performance computing

The HPC Program founding DOE National Laboratories host three of the top 10 HPC systems in the world. The photo above shows Vulcan at LLNL, Edison at LBNL, Titan at ORNL, and Peregrine at NREL.

The HPC4Mfg Program is led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and principal laboratories, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The program has expanded to include other participating laboratories Argonne National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), which bring significant new expertise and capabilities to the program.

All DOE national laboratories are eligible to participate as partners in this program.

HPC Systems Supporting the HPC4Mfg Program

DOE National Laboratories host 5 of the top 10 HPC systems in the world. The HPC4Mfg Program founding laboratories, LLNL, LBNL, and ORNL, host 3 of these systems. NREL will be making their Peregrin system available to the HPC4Mfg program, beginning in the fall of 2016. Other DOE national labs will be added as the HPC4Mfg Program grows.

Primary HPC Systems

The table above shows the primary HPC systems supporting the HPC4Mfg program at the partner labs. Other systems also available.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories actively infuse and maintain a comprehensive ecosystem of leadership-class high performance computing (HPC) assets.
