Ookami Joins the Pack

By Megan Johnson, NCSA

The pool of resources available within ACCESS is ever-expanding. We’re pleased to introduce our readers to Ookami, the supercomputer from Stony Brook University’s Institute for Advanced Computation Science (IACS).

Ookami has been in operation since 2020. Stony Brook’s supercomputer was the first to employ the A64fx processor developed by Riken and Fujitsu outside of Japan. This technology is shared by Fugaku, which was the fastest supercomputer in the world for five consecutive terms and remained number one until June 2022.

This powerful new supercomputing resource will be a boon to ACCESS and IACS is a welcome addition to the team of resource providers. Ookami will be of particular use to scientists who need access to HPC resources that excel with memory-intensive applications such as sparse-matrix solvers. ACCESS continues to work towards providing a diverse set of resources like Ookami to meet the needs of the wide variety of research projects around the country.

We are excited to join ACCESS as research provider. Ookami enriches the ACCESS ecosystem with its unique architecture. We are looking forward to working with the researchers and supporting their projects.

Eva Siegmann, Lead Research Scientist, IACS

In addition, IACS will be offering a webinar open to anyone interested in using Ookami on October 26, 2:00 pm EST. We encourage you to attend and learn more about how a supercomputer like Ookami can help you with your research project. You can register for the webinar here.
