The next year or two will bring major updates to the ARC resources available to Canadian researchers. We know only some of the outlines of possible hardware configurations, based on what vendors are talking about today. But we know many of the basic directions, and it’s interesting to consider how they compare to our current hardware. This talk will focus on current hardware, to show the relation between hardware-level (theoretical) performance, then micro-benchmarks, and how those lead to some application-level metrics. From that context, we can make some extrapolations about the kind of performance we can hope for in upcoming systems.

The Compute Ontario Colloquia are weekly Zoom presentations on Advanced Research Computing, High Performance Computing, Research Data Management, and Research Software topics, delivered by staff from three Compute Ontario consortia (CAC, SciNet, SHARCNET) and guest speakers. The series began January 2023 and superseded similar series previously delivered by individual consortia (e.g. General Interest Seminars by SHARCNET or User Group Meeting TechTalks by SciNet). The colloquia are one hour long and include time for questions. No registration is required. Presentations are usually recorded and uploaded to the hosting consortium video channel (colloquia hosted by SHARCNET go to our youtube channel).

No tickets available.
