The fiscal year of the federal government in the United States ends on September 30, and whether we all knew it or not, the US Department of Energy had a revised goal of beginning the deployment of at least one exascale-class supercomputing system before fiscal 2021 ended and fiscal 2022 began on October 1

"Last week, Barbara Helland, associate director of the Office of Science's Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program within the US Department of Energy and importantly the development leader for the DOE's exascale computing efforts, said that this goal has been met. And Helland proved it with pictures of the 'Frontier' supercomputer being installed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and being built by Hewlett Packard Enterprise with the help of compute engine supplier AMD, which she included in her presentation for updating colleagues on the status of both the Frontier machine and the updated 'Aurora A21' system that will be going into Argonne National Laboratory..."
