Dec. 4 -- The DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative (DECI) announces the opening of DECI-6, the 6th annual competition for European computational scientists who can apply for single-project access to world-leading computational resources in the European HPC infrastructure, operated by DEISA.
DECI enables European researchers to obtain access to the most powerful national computing resources in Europe, regardless of their country of origin or work, and to enhance the impact of European science and technology at the highest level. Through an open, competitive call, a number of capability computing projects will be selected on the basis of innovation and scientific excellence. These projects must deal with complex, demanding, innovative simulations that would not be possible without the DEISA infrastructure, and which would benefit from the exceptional resources of the DEISA Consortium.
In addition to offering access to computing resources, DEISA offers applications-enabling assistance from experts at the leading European HPC centres to enable projects to be run on the most appropriate platforms in the DEISA consortium. Projects supported by DECI will be chosen on the basis of innovation potential, scientific excellence and relevance criteria. Priority will be given to proposals that promote collaborative research, either at a cross- national or cross-disciplinary level.
Proposals selected under this call will be given access to the infrastructure for applications enabling and test runs from July 1, 2010, and for production runs from Oct. 1, 2010, to April 30, 2011.
The DECI-6 Call for Proposals will close on Feb. 16, 2010. For more information, see the DEISA Web site at http://www.deisa.eu/science/deci/deci-call-for-proposals2010/.
DEISA is the Consortium for Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications, funded by the European Commission in the 6th and 7th Framework Programme. The two projects DEISA1 ( 2005 – 2008) and now DEISA2 (2008 – 2011), are paving the way towards the deployment of a cooperative European HPC ecosystem. DEISA2 continues to support and develop the distributed high performance computing infrastructure in Europe. The consortium is consolidating the existing DEISA infrastructure and extending its collaborative environment for capability computing and data management. The DEISA infrastructure is unmatched world-wide in its underlying heterogeneity and complexity. A major task is the federated operation of the powerful European HPC infrastructure built on top of national services. This specific e-infrastructure will facilitate Europe's world-leading computational science research. http://www.deisa.eu/.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
