The Adept project is addressing the challenge of the energy-efficient use of parallel technologies. It builds on the expertise of software developers from high-performance computing to exploit parallelism for performance, and on the expertise of Embedded systems engineers in managing energy usage. Adept is developing a tool to guide software developers and help them model and predict the power consumption and performance of parallel software and hardware.

Adept, EPCC’s latest EU project, started officially on the 1st September and we held our kick-off meeting in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. The project partners travelled from Sweden (Uppsala University and Ericsson) and Belgium (Ghent), as well as from just across town (Alpha Data) to take part.

Reaching the Exascale is rightly posed as a combination of challenges related to (i) energy efficiency, (ii) heterogeneity and resiliency of computation, storage and communication, and (iii) the scale of the parallelism involved. Many discussions about Exascale focus on the first two challenges. This is understandable – building an Exascale system with today’s most energy efficient technology would still require around 480 MWatts.
