TechTarget - 12/07/2016
This Q&A features highlights from a conversation with Gene Cooperman, a professor in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University in Boston. He is one of the main members of a team working to run what is known as transparent checkpointing on one of the world’s largest supercomputers, called Stampede. In the conversation, Cooperman spoke about some of the biggest challenges of checkpointing, what makes checkpointing transparent, the implications of growing application and data diversity, and the potential security effects of this technique.
