Rethinking High Performance Computing Platforms

Ole Weidner, Malcolm Atkinson, Adam Barker, Rosa Filgueira Vicente
2016 Proceedings of the ACM International Workshop on Data-Intensive Distributed Computing - DIDC '16  
These requirements are not met by the current production HPC platform models and policies. This results in a loss of opportunity, productivity and innovation for new computational methods and tools.  ...  In this paper we critically discuss the dominant HPC platform model and describe the challenges it creates for second generation applications because of its asymmetric resource view, interfaces and software  ...  In the second scenario, users "learn" from the first scenario and define the application wall-time limit very pessimistically.  ...
