The HPC user’s requirements are exploding, as more scientific domains demand HPC resources. Different communities need different compilers, libraries, visualization tools, languages and runtimes. Some of the newcomers are still learning about the particularities of HPC environments, and struggling to focus on their science rather than on technical difficulties. At the same time, supercomputing architectures are becoming increasingly complex, with heterogeneity becoming common place at multiple levels. Providing a user-friendly environment for a wide user spectrum is a significant burden for support groups. In this talk, we’ll learn about JSC’s efforts -ranging from efficiently deploying software in a comprehensible user environment, to visualization strategies, tools and plans- to help users focus on their science.
