Update from Genci: A journey of optimizing applications on Arm platforms

June 24, 2020

This Arm blog co-authored with Genci,  CEA and  Atos (all past or present partners of Mont-Blanc) details the optimisation work performed on production scientific applications on Genci’s Arm system – an Atos system derived from Mont-Blanc’s Dibona prototype.

2019 was a key year in the pursuit of the work started on Arm technology, over ten years after the initial involvement in the Mont Blanc project at GENCI. This year saw the deployment at TGCC/CEA of a new prototype called INTI, based on BullSequana X1000 with Marvell ThunderX2 technology, and its opening to the entire scientific community in Q4 2019 ( with the ambition to support and accompany the French scientific community on the road to Exascale. The INTI platform has enabled three hackathons, allowing application owners to understand the efforts to port their codes to Arm technology and to get the most out of future generations of Arm processors, including the in-development European processor candidate for Exascale.
