Spack featured on The Next Platform

The Next Platform provides in-depth coverage of high-end computing at large enterprises, supercomputing centers, hyperscale data centers, and public clouds. Against the backdrop of the Supercomputing (SC20) conference, the article titled “Spack Packs Deployment Boost for Top Supercomputers” describes the challenges of creating and deploying scientific software packages. Writer Nicole Hemsoth explains how Spack seeks to fill gaps in customization and configurability; that it is the deployment tool for Fukagu, the world’s top supercomputer; and, heading into the exascale era, how the Spack development team is handling the growing complexity of dependency issues for HPC software.
