    SORS: RISC-V: Instruction sets want to be free

    Training
    Location: Sala d´Actes FIB.
    2017-06-07 12:00:00 2017-06-07 12:00:00 Europe/Madrid SORS: RISC-V: Instruction sets want to be free For details, click on the following event link: https://www.bsc.es/research-and-development/research-seminars/sors-risc-v-instruction-sets-want-be-free Sala d´Actes FIB.

    This talk will cover the technical features of the RISC-V ISA design, which has the goals of scaling from the tiniest implementations for IoT up to the largest warehouse-scale computers, with support for extensive customization. We'll also describe industry-competitive open-source cores developed at UC Berkeley, all written in Chisel, a productive new open-source hardware design language.

    SORS: Big Data Applications on Flash Storage with Accelerators

    Training
    Location: Building C6, room E106, Campus Nord
    2017-05-10 12:00:00 2017-05-10 12:00:00 Europe/Madrid SORS: Big Data Applications on Flash Storage with Accelerators For details, click on the following event link: https://www.bsc.es/research-and-development/research-seminars/sors-big-data-applications-flash-storage-accelerators Building C6, room E106, Campus Nord

    Fast content-based searches and complex analytics of the vast amount of data collected via social media, cell phones, ubiquitous smart sensors, and satellites is likely to be the biggest economic driver for the IT industry over the next decade. A cheaper and cooler alternative to large clusters which provides high-performance, high-capacity, scalable random-access flash storage, and allows computation near the data via FPGA-based programmable flash controllers will be presented.

    SORS: Resilience Design Patterns: A Structured Approach to Resilience at Extreme Scale

    Training
    Location: Capella, sala Severo Ochoa, Tuesday, 09th od May 11:00am
    2017-05-09 11:00:00 2017-05-09 11:00:00 Europe/Madrid SORS: Resilience Design Patterns: A Structured Approach to Resilience at Extreme Scale For details, click on the following event link: https://www.bsc.es/research-and-development/research-seminars/sors-resilience-design-patterns-structured-approach-resilience-extreme-scale Capella, sala Severo Ochoa, Tuesday, 09th od May 11:00am

    In this talk, a structured approach to the management of HPC resilience using the concept of resilience-based design patterns will be presented. A design pattern is a general repeatable solution to a commonly occurring problem. The authors identify the commonly occurring problems and solutions used to deal with faults, errors and failures in HPC systems.
