Arm and JSC Sign Multi-Year Collaboration Agreement
Newsflash 06/2021 –

Hardware company and research institute plan to focus on optimizing and port applications to Arm-based architectures.

Arm and the Forschungszentrum Jülich today signed a multi-year cooperation agreement. Its goal is to strengthen their joint effort in identifying the requirements of high performance computing (HPC) applications and advancing their porting and optimization on Arm-based architectures. 

The collaboration of the British semiconductor and software design company Arm with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) focuses on the analysis and optimization of strategic HPC applications on Arm-based HPC systems, including Arm-accelerated platforms (for example, Arm+GPU). The joint team carries on performance analysis and code engineering, taking advantage of specific features of Arm-based hardware to further advance application performance. The code requirements identified in this effort will help in the design of future HPC technologies and systems.

“Arm is developing very attractive technology for HPC, which is not only populating the fastest computer in the world (Fugaku), but is also key in the European Exascale strategy,” said Prof. Dr. Thomas Lippert, Director of JSC. “Arm’s core design and architecture are the basis of the first European processor tailored to HPC (EPI project). Our co-design partnership with Arm will give us access to their latest technology developments and expertise, and help us to prepare our key applications to exploit the latest features. We are also excited to see how Arm-based processors can help us to reach Exascale performance at an affordable price, combined with acceleration devices and high-speed networks in our Modular Supercomputing architecture.”
