Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop DOE leadership-class computing capability for science

WASHINGTON, DC Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham announced today that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will grant Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and its development partners, Cray Inc., IBM Corp. and Silicon Graphics Inc., $25 million in funding to begin to build a 50 teraflop (50 trillion calculations per second) science research supercomputer. The department selected ORNL from four proposals received from its non-weapon national labs.

This new facility will enable the Office of Science to deliver world leadership-class computing for science, said Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham. It will serve to revitalize the U.S. effort in high-end computing.

The supercomputer will be open to the scientific community for research.

ORNL won the award in a peer-reviewed competition with three other Office of Science national laboratories. In response to a solicitation, the four laboratories submitted proposals designed to improve substantially the national research communitys computing capability or ability to perform the largest, most complex simulations and thereby enhance prospects for important research advances and scientific breakthroughs in all science disciplines supported by DOE and other federal science agencies.

ORNL will be responsible for working with vendors and users to determine the best system architecture for the expected set of computation problems. It will work closely with Cray and IBM as well as Argonne National Laboratory, other DOE national laboratories, and universities to make the new DOE computing capability a success. The facility will be used by DOE for mission-related research, and it also will be open to researchers from around the world for competitive, peer-reviewed research.

The leadership-class computing capability that now will be developed at ORNL will enable researchers to probe the deepest secrets of Nature and facilitate the technical, economic and social b
