Principal Investigator:


Prabhat leads the Data and Analytics Services Group at NERSC. He is responsible for the big data software stack at NERSC, in this role, he tracks technologies spanning data analytics, management, workflows, transfer, portals/gateways and visualization. His personal research interests are in statistics, machine learning and computer vision. Prabhat has a B. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Delhi, and received an Sc.M in Computer Science from Brown University. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences from UC Berkeley.


The goal of the NERSC Big Data Center is to solve DOE’s leading data-intensive science problems at scale on Cori. We are interested in problems that involve management of O(100+) TB datasets, and analysis on O(100K+) cores. We will work with Intel staff to improve performance and scaling of the production data stack on Cori. We will enable peer Intel® Parallel Computing Center(s) (Intel® PCC) researchers to utilize (and extend) the production stack for their individual research, and team up with scientists to enable breakthrough science.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
