Note:

DE-SC0008596 - The goals of the XPRESS research project are to: A. enable Exascale performance capability for DOE applications, both current and future, B. develop and deliver a practical computing system software X-stack, OpenX, for future practical DOE Exascale computing systems, and C. provide programming methods, environments, languages, and tools for effective means of expressing application and system software for portable Exascale system execution. To achieve these daunting challenges, the collaborating institutions of the XPRESS team will undertake to achieve key objectives including: 1) derive a dynamic adaptive introspective strategy for exploiting opportunities and addressing critical challenges of Exascale technologies in the form of an abstract execution model, 2) devise a software architecture as a framework for future Exascale system design and implementation (including hardware architecture), 3) implement core interrelated and interoperable components of the software architecture to realize a fully working and usable system for DOE Exascale application execution including fault tolerance and energy management, 4) test, evaluate, validate, and demonstrate correctness, performance, resilience, and energy and resource utilization efficiency with respect to DOE mission-critical applications, and 5) provide technology transfer through cooperative engagement of industry hardware and software vendors and user national laboratories and by means of documentation and training.
