April 14, 2022 – The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) will host an online event for its user community on April 27, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. CT to review the details of Polaris, ALCF’s latest high performance computing system. The HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10+ System is currently the 12th Top500 supercomputer. It is made up of 560 nodes, each with an AMD EPYC Milan processor, 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs and 2 NVMe SSDs. An HPE Slingshot 11 Dragonfly topology network connects the nodes together, producing a system with peak performance of 44 petaflops (DP).
This webinar will take a closer look at the details of the Polaris hardware and software available on the system and give users an idea of what to expect when wider access becomes available later this year.
