High Performance Computing 

Contact: LC support

Livermore Computing Center (LC) is home to a first-class computational infrastructure that supports the computing requirements of the Laboratory’s research scientists. A particular focus of the Center is to develop solutions (in collaboration with tri-lab partners at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories) that will create a functional problem-solving environment for high performance computers under the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program. Another goal is to provide leveraged, cost-effective high performance computing to multiple programs and independent researchers under the Multiprogrammatic and Institutional Computing (M&IC) program.

High Performance Computing Innovation Center 

Contact: Fred Streitz

The High Performance Computing Innovation Center connects companies with computational science and computer science experts, on demand, to help them solve their toughest challenges. We provide cost-effective access to some of the world’s largest HPC systems and rapidly assemble expert teams to develop, prove and deploy high-impact solutions across a broad range of industries and applications.

Exascale Co-design Center for Materials in Extreme Environments (ExMatEx) 

Contact: Jim Belak

The Exascale Co-Design Center for Materials in Extreme Environments (ExMatEx) was established in August 2011 as a joint LANL and LLNL lead project to address the goal set by the Department of Energy to build an exascale supercomputer  capable of performing 1018 floating point operations per second by early 2020s. Such a simulation capability will play a key role in solving many of the nation's most pressing problems, including producing clean energy, extending nuclear reactor lifetimes, and certifying the aging nuclear stockpile. The purpose of ExMatEx is to develop a materials modeling capability for exascale computing.
