EU “science cloud” aims to give Europe a global lead in big data

The EU has launched a mega “ science cloud ”, intended to better exploit the continent's academic research via big data.   The initiative aims to overhaul current “insufficient and fragmented infrastructure” and offer the EU's 1.7 million researchers and 70 million science and technology professionals "a virtual environment to store, share and re-use their data across...

SBRI - PCP Competition - Whole System Design for Energy Efficient High Performance Computing (HPC)

OVERVIEW   The main constraint related to the upgrade of the HPC infrastructures today is the availability and cost (both economically and ecologically) of the energy required to power and cool new more performing supercomputers. This has been identified as one of the major challenges to address in the design and the operation of future multi-Petascale and Exascale HPC systems...

e-Infrastructure: the shape of things to come

e-Infrastructure is a new Special Interest Group (SIG) dedicated to the increasingly active area of High Performance Computing (HPC), the use of supercomputers and computer clusters to solve advanced computation problems. At a shaping meeting for the new SIG last month the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) lead technologist in ICT, Jonathan Mitchener, stressed the importance of the field. Not...
