Oak Ridge National Lab, Penn State, and UCSB are pleased to announce the release of DESTINY (a 3D dEsign-Space exploraTIon tool for SRAM, eDRAM and Non-volatile memorY). DESTINY is a tool for modeling both 2D and 3D caches designed with five prominent conventional and emerging memory technologies: SRAM, eDRAM (embedded DRAM), PCM (or PCRAM), STT-RAM (or STT-MRAM) and ReRAM (or RRAM). DESTINY is intended to be a comprehensive tool, extending the capabilities of CACTI, CACTI-3DD, and NVSim, on which DESTINY is based. It can be used to model technology devices ranging from 22nm to 180nm.

In January, FTG hosted the Pegasus team from ISI/USC for a tutorial on their workflow system. This tutorial helped to kick off a new joint project, named Panorama, which examines predictive modeling and diagnostic monitoring of extreme science workflows.
A FTG paper on analytical modeling of application resiliency was selected as a Best Student Paper Finalist at SC14 http://sc14.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail?evid=pap192. The paper, entitled "Quantitately Modeling Application Resilency with the Data Vulnerability Factor," introduces a pragmatic, data-driven methodology to analyze application vulnerability based on a novel resilience metric: the data vulnerability factor (DVF).
