Yutaka Ishikawa

Project Leader of Flagship 2020 Project, RIKEN AICS

Yutaka Ishikawa is in charge of developing post K computer. Ishikawa received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Keio University. From 1987 to 2001, he was a member of AIST (former Electrotechnical Laboratory), METI. From 1993 to 2001, he was the chief of Parallel and Distributed System Software Laboratory at Real World Computing Partnership. He led development of cluster system software called SCore, which was used in several large PC cluster systems around 2004. From 2002 to 2014, he was a professor at the University Tokyo. He led the project to design a commodity-based supercomputer called T2K open supercomputer. As a result, three universities, Tsukuba, Tokyo, and Kyoto, obtained each supercomputer based on the specification.


Talk Title:

Post-K Development Update


Talk Abstract:

The next flagship supercomputer in Japan, replacement of the K supercomputer and thus we call it post-K computer, is being designed to be operated in early 2020s.  Its node architecture and interconnect are an ARM HPC extension and a 6-D mesh/torus network, respectively. A three level hierarchical storage system will be installed with compute nodes.  The system software developed in the post K supercomputer includes a novel operating system for general-purpose manycore architectures, low-level communication and MPI libraries, and file I/O middleware.  After introducing an overview of the post K architecture, we will present the current status of the system software development.
