Science teams at Argonne who work on the Aurora project are getting readier and readier to bring the 10,000-node exascale computer to life. To do so, a test and development system is needed—this is a mini-me to the real thing.

Sunspot is that system, two racks of actual Aurora hardware—primarily the Intel® Data Center GPU Max Series—and the 128 nodes in size.

In this episode of Code Together, two leads on the project discuss the Sunspot testbed and how Argonne research teams are using it to optimize code performance in preparation for early science runs on Aurora.
