    • Some Techila Use-Cases Tuomas Eerola September 13, 2011
    • CONFIDENTIALSurface science (1/2)!  Surface science to determine geometrical and electronic structure of surface.!  Obtaining a comprehensive picture of the unconventional superconductors relies very much on electronic spectroscopes.!  Need to run computations with multiple variables, check the results with experimental predictions and adjust the combinations of parameters and run again.!  High-Performance Computers (HPC) with Message Passing Interface (MPI) was tested at NERSC!  Challenges: !  Scalability issues !  Frustration resulting of HPC queuing and MPI’s complexity!Need for a simple, scalable and fast solution The content of this presentation is confidential.
