E4S: Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack
Sameer Shende

The DOE Exascale Computing Project (EC) Software Technology focus area
is developing an HPC software ecosystem that will enable the efficient
and performant execution of exascale applications. Through the
Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S), it is developing a
comprehensive and coherent software stack that will enable application
developers to productively write highly parallel applications that can
portably target diverse exascale architectures - including the IBM
OpenPOWER with NVIDIA GPU systems. E4S features a broad collection of
HPC software packages including the TAU Performance System(R) for
performance evaluation of HPC and AI/ML codes. E4S provides a curated set of packages
built using the Spack package manager and provides both bare-metal installation and
containerized distributions that feature a broad collection of HPC
software packages. E4S exists to accelerate the development, deployment,
and use of HPC software, lowering the barriers for HPC users.
