2009 DOE INCITE projects allocated at ORNL
Date:12/18/2008

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. Dec. 18, 2008 -- In 2009, Oak Ridge National Laboratory will make nearly 470 million processor hours available on Jaguar, its Cray XT supercomputer, under the Department of Energy's Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment, or INCITE, program.

Thirty eight separate projects will advance breakthrough research in critical areas such as climate studies, energy assurance, materials, and other areas of fundamental science. All told, the DOE program is allocating 889 million processor hours at national laboratories in Illinois, California and Washington as well as ORNL.

"From understanding the makeup of our universe to protecting the quality of life here on earth, the computational science now possible using DOE's supercomputers touches all of our lives," said DOE Under Secretary for Science Raymond Orbach, who launched INCITE in 2003. "By dedicating time on these supercomputers to carefully selected projects, we are advancing scientific research in ways we could barely envision 10 years ago, improving our national competitiveness."

Since a processor hour is equivalent to one hour on one processing core, a single hour using all of Jaguar's 181,000 processing cores is equivalent to 181,000 processor hours. Located within ORNL's Leadership Computing Facility in the National Center for Computational Sciences, Jaguar is the world's most powerful supercomputer for open scientific research, with a peak performance of 1.64 quadrillion calculations a second, or 1.64 petaflops.

The 2009 INCITE program reflects several recent upgrades to the system. The LCF's allocation in the coming year is more than three times the 145 million processor hours allocated in 2008 and more than six times the 75 million processor hours allocated in 2007.

Researchers will use Jaguar to continue their record of scientific achievement. In the past year, INCITE projects at the LCF have conducted the largest, mos
