PNNL’s CENATE taps machine learning potential to keep tabs on potential misuse.
Until a team from PNNL's HPC group, the University of Copenhagen, and Virginia Tech opted to experimentally characterize and analyze modern On-Package Memory, or OPM, storage, little was known about its effects on speed and power use in major high-performance computing applications.
Recently, PNNL added BlueSky to its roster of HPC resources that aim to transform computer science research for both institutional users and CENATE collaborators.
Adolfy Hoisie, PNNL’s Chief Scientist for Computing and CENATE Director, was selected as an HPCwire 2017 Person to Watch.
Staff members from PNNL's HPC organization participated in the technical program (and more) as part of the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, better known as SC17.
CENATE – a computing proving ground at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research, is rapidly expanding its capabilities to assist the high-performance computing community by providing diverse methods to steer optimal system designs and enhance overall performance.
Now entering its second year, CENATE already has some potent equipment and ambitious ideas in the four areas of instrumentation, testbeds, evaluation, and modeling and simulation.

CENATE has garnered significant publicity, including picking up HPCwire Editors’ Choice award for “Best HPC Collaboration Between Government & Industry.” The award acknowledged CENATE’s integrated evaluation of early technologies from industry collaborators: Micron Technology, Mellanox Technologies, Penguin Computing, NVIDIA, IBM, and Data Vortex Technologies.
By creating a focal point for the evaluation of early systems technologies that too often are conducted between isolated research teams and technology providers, CENATE provides a needed research and development connection function.
