Filippo Mantovani updates the audience of the GoingArm workshop at SC17 about the contributions of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center to the European Project Mont-Blanc.
Since 2011, Mont-Blanc pushes the adoption of Arm technology in the High Performance Computing deploying Arm-based prototypes, enhancing system software ecosystem and projecting performance of current systems for developing new, more powerful and less power hungry HPC computing platforms based on Arm SoC.
In the talk Filippo introduces the last Mont-Blanc system, called Dibona, designed and integrated by the coordinator and industrial partner of the project, Bull/ATOS. He also talks about tests performed at BSC of the Arm software tools (HPC compiler and mathematical libraries) as well as the Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB) technique and the MUltiscale Simulator Architecture (MUSA).
