Keynote Presentation: LLNL and Cornelis Networks Accelerate COVID Research at Scale
In this session we’ll discuss COVID-19 work done on both Ruby and Mammoth, which are Intel and AMD CPU supercomputing clusters at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. Both machines use the Cornelis OPA network, but serve different diverse workloads needed to model the evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and treatments for COVID-19. The ability to stand these machines up quickly and reliably was key to LLNL researcher productivity in searching for a cure and understanding how the virus mutates.
