The limiting factor in the development of an Exascale High Performance Computer System is power consumption. The Mont-Blanc2 project focuses on the task to develop a next generation HPC system using embedded technologies to reach this difficult task. After the development of the hardware architecture in the first phase of the Mont-Blanc project, Mont-Blanc2 focuses more on the developed of the necessary system software stack and evolution of the system design. It examines a new programming model allowing to write efficient code for the new computer architecture. It emphasizes tools for the programmer like debugger and performance analysis tools, which increase the usability of such a system for the users.
A third phase of the project (Mont-Blanc 3) started in September 2015.
