24 Apr 2015 – This week, at the Exascale Application and Software Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, the audience voted the FTG presentation on performance modeling as the conference’s Best Presentation. Jeffrey Vetter presented ‘Exploring Emerging Technologies in the Extreme Scale HPC Co-Design Space with Holistic Performance Modeling’ that discusses the importance of using performance modeling in the design of upcoming Extreme Scale platforms. The award was presented at the conference banquet at the The Royal College of Surgeons.

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.
