Los Alamos National LaboratoryAPEX: Alliance for Application Performance at Extreme Scale
Collaborating to design, acquire, and deploy advanced technology high performance computing systems


ACES and NERSC began collaborating with the procurement and deployment of two very similar systems in 2010 Cielo at LANL, and Hopper at NERSC both Cray XE6™ systems.

The partnership was formalized and strengthened with the Trinity/NERSC-8 joint procurement, which resulted in the acquisition of two Cray XC40™ systems: Trinity at LANL, and Cori at NERSC. The APEX collaboration continues to build on this shared history between the two organizations.
