Allinea DDT – the debugger of choice for the world’s most powerful supercomputer.
Champaign, Illinois, 2012-05-14 – The Blue Waters project is now well underway with a completion date of Fall 2012. As one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, its immense computational power and stability will allow scientists to make breakthroughs in a diverse range of fields. Allinea DDT is the debugger they call on to help them fix their bugs at full scale and exploit the maximum computational power.
The Blue Waters machine aims to deliver breakthroughs in nearly all areas of science and engineering – to enable discoveries into real-world science and engineering, from astrophysics to DNA, from earthquakes to epidemics. The technologies used on Blue Waters will be the bridge to those that future supercomputers will be built on. The project is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the University of Illinois and the state of Illinois. Cray is installing the main computational and on-line storage systems at the National Petascale Computing Facility (NPCF) in Champaign.
