EuroHPC: Requirements from Weather and Climate

Presentation: pdf (9 MB)

Abstract: pdf

This talk covered requirements for the upcoming pre-exascale and exascale computers to be procured by the EuroHPC project. The bottom line is that Weather and Climate have strong constraints on HPC environnments, and we believe that procurement benchmarks should measure science throughput in science units (in our case Simulated Years Per (real) Day, SYPD). We also recommend that the EuroHPC project takes cognisance of the fact that HPC simulations do not directly generate knowledge, the knowledge comes from analysis of the data products!
