Lawrence Livermore Nat’l Lab Opens ‘Catalyst’ Supercomputer to Industry Partners

computer-technologyLawrence Livermore National Laboratory has opened its new supercomputer to industry partners for testing on big data systems.

The National Nuclear Security Administration uses Catalyst for its Advanced Simulation and Computing program and the technology features the NNSA’s Tri-lab open source software for common user platform, LLNL said May 6.

Cray and Intel collaborated with the laboratory to develop the Catalyst high performance computer with 128 gigabytes of dynamic random access memory per node, 800 GB of non-volatile memory per compute node and 3.2 terabytes of NVRAM per Lustre router node.

Catalyst is built to hold video analytics and machine learning models.

The system was deployed in October and is available through Livermore’s High Performance Computing Innovation Center.

Jonathan Allen, bioinformatics scientist at Lawrence Livermore, currently develops new methods to identify pathogenic organisms by using Catalyst.
