council background
Council Background
  • Founded 1986 by John Young (CEO Hewlett-Packard)
  • Non-profit, non-partisan
  • Mission
    • Set a public policy action agenda that drives economic growth and raises the standard of living for all Americans
  • Membership
    • Only national organization whose membership is comprised exclusively of CEOs, university presidents and labor leaders
changing competitive environment
Changing Competitive Environment
  • U.S. is facing more serious global competitive challenges than in the past
  • We can no longer compete on traditional cost and quality terms
  • The ability to create new value will determine competitive advantage
high performance computing and innovation
High Performance Computing and Innovation

High performance computing

is a key ingredient in America’s innovation capacity

high performance computing project a program of the council s national innovation initiative
High Performance Computing ProjectA program of the Council’s National Innovation Initiative

Objective: Stimulate and facilitate wider usage of HPC across the private sector to propel productivity, innovation and competitiveness

Approach

  • Determine whether the private sector is using HPC as aggressively as it could and should
    • If not…why not: business & technical barriers
  • Explore the role of public-private sector partnerships to address barriers
  • Leverage government investment in HPC R&D, systems and expertise to advance industrial and national competitiveness
project participants
Project Participants
  • Private sector HPC users
  • U.S. Government agencies and laboratories
  • HPC manufacturers and software developers

  • Shortened product development cycles
    • U.S. entertainment industry must compete with foreign animation studios

companies are not using hpc as aggressively as possible
Companies are not Using HPC as Aggressively as Possible
  • Lack of computational scientists (internal or external)
  • Not enough people in the pipeline
  • Poor match between skills taught and skills needed
  • Education and Training Barriers

Companies are not Using HPC as Aggressively as Possible
  • Business Culture Barriers:
    • Is HPC an investment, or a cost?
    • What is the return on investment (ROI)?

  • Technical Barriers
    • Legacy applications software inhibits usage
    • Codes are often not scalable for broader industrial use
    • Software licensing costs are growing, becoming a barrier for some sites
hpc independent software vendor isv study1
HPC Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Study
  • First of its kind
  • Independent, extensive assessment of the landscape and market dynamics surrounding ISVs that serve HPC users.
hpc independent software vendor isv study2
HPC Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Study
  • Interviews Completed
    • 110 completed interviews (by application)
    • From 54 different suppliers/companies
  • Notes
    • There are many small university codes that we did not focus on
    • Government ISV codes received second priority
    • We surveyed for codes that are used in the U.S. or worldwide. Codes that are only used in their foreign country of origin (e.g., India, Japan) were not included in this study.
hpc independent software vendor isv study3
HPC Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Study
  • Primary Goals
    • Assess the ISV landscape for HPC
    • Identify ISVs’ readiness for petascale computing
    • Identify barriers to future development
    • Create an ISV directory
hpc independent software vendor isv study4
HPC Independent Software Vendor (ISV) study
  • Study captures information on:
    • Demographics; company profile; history of code
    • Scalability
    • Willingness to form partnerships and improve code
    • Breakdowns by industry
hpc independent software vendor isv study5
HPC Independent Software Vendor (ISV) study

ISV applications only exploit a fraction of the performance potential of today’s systems

In practice, 82% of applications are runat 32 CPUs or below.

About one in four applicationsis single-CPU.

Data from Council-sponsored survey conducted by IDC

For many applications, the ISVs know how to improve scalability but have no plans to do so.

No, not possible

14%

Already does, or in

progress

26%

Yes, but no

immediate plans

We need to understand the motivations of this group.
