Project will Enhance Livermore Computing Center in Preparation for Exascale

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) recently announced that it had broken ground on its Exascale Computing Facility Modernization project, which will significantly expand the power and cooling capacity of the Livermore Computing Center to get it ready for next-generation exascale supercomputing hardware. The facility is scheduled for completion in 2022.

The upgrades to the Livermore Computing Center will enable it to provide exascale-level service—supercomputers capable of at least one quintillion calculations per second—to the National Nuclear Security Administration laboratories: LLNL, Los Alamos, and Sandia.
