CSCS, known for their expertise in applying high performance computing to areas as diverse as the daily weather forecast and climate prediction through to drug discovery and evolution biology, are hosts for Switzerland's premier HPC systems - including the Monte Rosa and Todi Cray XE6 and XK6 machines.
With over 50,000 CPU cores and around 200 powerful NVIDIA Tesla X2090 GPU cards on site, developers at CSCS are aiming to achieve significant scientific breakthroughs with their applications.
“We are very excited to be moving in to this new phase of development. Our developers will now be able to reach larger scales than before, which will facilitate some ground-breaking scientific breakthroughs. Allinea DDT meets exactly the debugging needs of our users and allows us to take an important step forward in parallel debugging,” says Thomas Schoenemeyer, Associate Director Technology Integration of CSCS. “Our developers appreciate the unique debugging features such as the excellent parallel stack viewer and other integrated features that allow them to create distinct groups, which are very useful when debugging thousands of processes. The novel sparklines are exceptionally useful for examining data in parallel.”
Commenting on the adoption of future technologies, Schoenemeyer adds, “Allinea DDT handles new languages well, such as PGAS, Co-Array Fortran and Unified Parallel C, and OpenACC and CUDA for our GPUs.”
Jacques Philouze, Worldwide Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Allinea Software said, “We are very proud to be working with CSCS, this partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing the tools that are needed by leading developers of outstanding software. Our support for the Cray XK6 and the Cray OpenACC compiler, coupled with recent innovations that link debugging and scientific visualization, showed a real alignment of both our visions for the future.”
