Fault Tolerance and Robustness

Robust-first Computing Efficiency costs robustness. For the safety of society and to let us build really big computers, we should put robustness first, ahead even of strict correctness and maximum efficiency, robust-first computing embodies this across the entire computational stack.

Fault-tolerance for HPC Systems To address the challenges of running applications on next- generation, large-scale, error-prone systems, we use modeling simulation and real frameworks to understand the impart of different resilience mechanisms or application performance.
