A new Fujitsu designed powerful Arm general purpose CPU will be presented. It supports Armv8-A and 512-bit SVE, scalable vector extension, ensuring binary compatibility amongst other Arm processors. It also provides superior memory bandwidth for real application performance by utilizing the on-package stacked memories. The CPU realizes the scalable energy efficient system since it is implemented as a system-on-a-chip integrating the interconnect, known as TofuD. The post-K featuring the CPU is under developing with RIKEN targeting the hundredfold of application performance of the K computer. The system also maintains binary compatibility standards, such as SBSA, SBBR, which contributes to complement and accelerate Arm ecosystem prosperity supporting of system software development including optimizing compilers, libraries, and tools. In the presentation, preliminary performance evaluation results and Fujitsu’s activities for prosperity of the Arm HPC ecosystem will be also discussed.

LVC20-303 State of Big Data and Data Science on ARMFriday, September 25, 2020
From being called the 'new gold / oil', Big data technologies from its peak hype cycle have now matured as quintessential technology that powers many of today’s businesses and enterprises. Most companies have changed themselves from being data-generating to data-powered, making use of actionable data and business insights. Big data is not just one piece of technology (Hadoop or Spark), rather it is a huge ecosystem, an assembly line of technologies and processes. There has been an increase in focus on data science and machine learning as a logical next step of evolution of Big Data. Data Strategy governs the quality of the data which acts as a precursor to data science and machine learning.
In this talk, we will look at where ARM stands in regards to having big data systems running in production. We will look at various achievements in the last few years and also understand where we stand currently in the process of making ARM as the first class citizen. We will also cover some of the pain points we have faced and what is important to work on in the near future and beyond.
Please join if you would like to know the status of Linaro’s BDDS team and its roadmap.
BKK19-218 - Vanguard Astra - Petascale ARM Platform for U.S. DOE/ASC SupercomputingTuesday, April 16, 2019
The Vanguard program looks to expand the potential technology choices for leadership class High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms, not only for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the Department of Energy (DOE), but also for the wider HPC community. Specifically, there is a need to expand the supercomputing ecosystem by investing and developing emerging, yet-to-be-proven technologies and address both hardware and software challenges together and prove-out the viability of such novel platforms for production workloads.
The first deployment of Vanguard is Astra, a prototype Petascale ARM supercomputer sited at Sandia National Laboratories. This talk will focus on the architectural details of Astra, as well as the Advanced Tri-Lab Software Environment (ATSE) and significant investments being made towards the ARM software ecosystem. Furthermore, we will share initial performance results, first experiences, and outlay several planned research activities.
