November 17, 2023

Three of the newest National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) commodity computing clusters recently deployed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) are among the most powerful supercomputing systems in the world, Top500 organizers announced Monday.

Funded under the second Commodity Technology Systems contract (CTS-2) by NNSA’s Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program, the machines sited at LLNL — named Dane and Bengal — began performing key modeling and simulation functions for the NNSA’s stockpile stewardship mission in mid-2023. Each system is built by Dell Technologies and powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors coupled to Cornelis Networks Omni-Path high-speed networking.
