E4S at NERSC 2022


NERSC and ECP Training are co-hosting a one-day E4S at NERSC training event on August 25, 2022. This session will provide users with an overview of E4S and how one can use the E4S stack at NERSC. We will have a hands-on component on how to deploy your own software stack using Spack, along with an E4S tutorial. There will be numerous talks from ECP leadership on the different focus efforts pertaining to E4S and how it aligns with the ECP project. This session is a continuation of E4S at DOE Facilties with Deep Dive at NERSC (though this previous session is not a prerequisite for attending).

This session will be held in hybrid mode (both in-person and online), and is open to all ECP members and all users of NERSC, ALCF, and OLCF.   

The Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S) is a curated collection of open-source software packages for high-performance computing. The E4S stack includes more than 100 HPC applications, libraries and tools, MPI, development tools such as HPCToolkit, TAU, PAPI, and math libraries including PETSC and Trilinos. E4S is available for use via containers, buildcache, AWS EC2 image, and facility tuned Spack environments in the form of spack.yaml. E4S provides a new model for providing a standard set of software stacks to HPC centers with dedicated support to help bridge the gap between HPC facilities and E4S product application developers. NERSC has deployed several versions of E4S on Perlmutter and Cori using the Spack package manager. We intend to use E4S as the vehicle for installing and supporting much of the software we provide for users going forward.
