E4S: Extreme Scale Scientific Software Stack

Date and Time: 
Thursday April 11th 2019 - AM
CG South Auditorium
Sameer Shende

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) [www.exascaleproject.org] Software Technology (ST) software, Extreme-Scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S) [http://e4s.io] includes a subset of ECP ST software products, and demonstrates the target approach for the future delivery of the full ECP ST software stack. E4S uses the Spack packages manager [www.spack.io] for software delivery. E4S provides container images for use with four container runtimes: Docker, Shifter, Singularity, and Charliecloud. A VirtualBox image that includes all four container runtimes is also available for testing. The tutorial will demonstrate the use of Spack and container environments for HPC.
