Cori is NERSC's newest supercomputer (NERSC-8), a Cray XC40. It is named for American biochemist Gerty Cori, the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first woman to be so honored with the prize in Physiology or Medicine. Cori is a unique supercomputer, comprised of 2,388 Intel Xeon "Haswell" processor nodes, 9,688 Intel Xeon Phi "Knight's Landing" nodes, and a 1.8 PB Cray Data Warp Burst Buffer.
NERSC, Cori and many aspects of using Cori - including Knights Landing processors, NESAP, performance, software, Burst Buffer, Shifter, SLURM, system management and system monitoring - were well represented at the 2017 Cray Users Group meeting. Read More »
A software toolkit developed in Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division to better understand supercomputer performance is now being used to boost application performance for researchers running codes at NERSC and other supercomputing facilities. Read More »
Following a call for proposals issued last October, NERSC has selected 6 science application teams to participate in the NERSC Exascale Science Applications Program for Data (NESAP for Data) program. Read More »
Shifter—the scalable software toolkit that leverages container-based computing to help supercomputer users run a wider range of software more easily and securely—is now better than ever. Read More »
