Architecture Challenges and Opportunities for Exascale Systems

James Sexton
IBM Research

The next few years will see the deployment of new systems solutions at the Exascale level that are targeted at integrating modeling, simulation, analytics, learning and inferencing to deliver unprecedented fidelity to complex systems analysis in many different scientific domains. These systems present very significant challenges in hardware and software architecture and in application and workflow implementation. In this presentation, we discuss the opportunities to be enabled by these systems together with the key challenges to be addressed. We describe some of the emerging technology and business trends that are fundamentally reshaping advanced computing solutions and speculate on possible future directions for these systems.
