IBM and NVIDA recently announced they were creating Centers of Excellence for supercomputing at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This move is tied to the collaboration on the next big supercomputing systems to be delivered to ORNL (Summit) and Livermore (Sierra) in 2017, with operations the next year. The supercomputing contracts were awarded late last year as part of a multi-lab effort known as CORAL — Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne and Lawrence Livermore — to accelerate development of next-generation machines.
