CENATE examines the technology landscape by targeting technologies at different maturity levels along a time horizon from very early novel concepts to pre- and early-release systems. In addition, CENATE spans the subsystem space to enable the exploration of novel developments in processing, memory, networking, and input/output and storage technologies. Among its resources, CENATE's research capabilities include:
Testbeds: Targeting novel technologies that are key building blocks of future HPC system architectures, such as processors, accelerators, memory, storage, and/or software stacks.
Instrumentation and Evaluation: Collecting different dimensions of performance, power, temperature, and/or resilience data to assess a system's overall capabilities and conduct workload characterization, including microbenchmarks, applications, and workflows.
Predictive Analysis: Predictive tools and methods to evaluate discrete technologies with the expertise to assess the impact of their integration into complete system architectures.
CENATE facilitates collaborative access, including via remote-access mechanisms, to its technology within the HPC community.
