HPC4Mtls | Principal Laboratories

high performance computing

The DOE National Laboratories host five of the top 10 HPC systems in the world. The photo above shows Vulcan at LLNL, Trinity at LANL, Titan at ORNL, and Peregrine at NREL.

The HPC4Mtls Program is led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and principal laboratories, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).

All DOE national laboratories are eligible to participate as partners in this program.

HPC Systems Supporting the HPC4Mtls Program

DOE National Laboratories host 5 of the top 10 HPC systems in the world. The HPC4Mtls Program founding laboratories, LLNL, LANL, and ORNL, host 3 of these systems. Other DOE national labs will be added as the HPC4Mtls Program grows.

Primary HPC Systems

The table above shows the primary HPC systems supporting the HPC4Mtls Program at the principal labs. Other systems are also available.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories actively infuse and maintain a comprehensive ecosystem of leadership-class high performance computing (HPC) assets.

  • Massive commodity clusters and advanced, pioneering architectures
  • Data-intensive analytics and computing
