High Performance Computing
Managing world-class supercomputing centers
The High Performance Computing (HPC) Division supports the Laboratory mission by managing world-class Supercomputing Centers.
This includes specifying, operating, and assisting in the use of both open and secure high performance computing, storage, and emerging data-intensive information science production systems for multiple programs.
- Expertly translate computing industry trends into a robust high performance computing environment;
- Design and operate the physical infrastructure supporting LANL's computing needs;
- Operate and enable effective use of the full high performance computing environment;
- Leverage high performance computing systems, processes, and expertise, beyond traditional HPC, to advance innovative Laboratory scientific efforts;
- Engage in research, development, and state-of-the-art software engineering, supporting development, design, and effective use of increasingly complex large-scale data and computational environments.
HPC Division translates evolving HPC technologies into the assets that are deployed in the Centers as well as
- performing applied research,
- advanced software engineering,
- user support,
- facilities maintenance, and
- full-system integration
to provide the unprecedented-scale computing capabilities required to provide solutions to complex problems of strategic national interest.
