This technical area of the ECP software group coordinates the delivery of E4S, the new HPC software ecosystem, and provides important software build, test and integration tools, in particular Spack, and containers environments that leverage emerging industry standards for portable execution adapted to leadership computing platforms. This area also provides the critical resources and staffing that support ECP ST continuous integration testing and product releases via E4S.
Objective: Increase the interoperability, availability, quality, and sustainability of the software technologies being developed in the exascale computing project
The large number of software technologies being delivered to the application developers poses challenges, especially if the application needs to use more than one technology at the same time. The Software Development Kit (SDK) efforts identify meaningful aggregations of products within the programming models and runtimes, development tools, and data and visualization technical areas, with the goal of increasing the interoperability, availability and quality.
