Pacific Northwest National Laboratory


Launched in 2015, PNNL’s Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation was envisioned as a computer proving ground, where an integrated measure–model–design evaluation pipeline of early technologies will predict their potential, guide designs, and hone future extreme-scale systems and applications.

At its core, CENATE encompasses instrumentation, testbeds, evaluation, and modeling and simulation research areas that primarily focus on workload applications of interest to the U.S. Department of Energy. CENATE is funded by the DOE’s Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research.
