In this video, representatives from the European CRESTA Project describe the importance of supercomputing and how this collaboration is approaching the daunting challenges of Exascale. CRESTA brings together four of Europe’s leading supercomputing centres, with one of the world’s major equipment vendors, two of Europe’s leading programming tools providers and six application and problem owners to explore how the exaflop challenge can be met.
It is quite clear that the global economies that invest in modelling and simulation are those that will, over time, gain the greatest competitive advantage and reap the largest economic benefits. Hence the current scramble to invest in large-scale leading-edge HPC systems worldwide. There is a clear understanding worldwide that the net economic impact of such systems greatly outweighs the amount of money spent procuring them.
