In the video, the DEEP-ER project paves the way to energy-efficient Exascale computing.
Having started in October 2013, the DEEP-ER (DEEP – Extended Reach) project will advance the Cluster-Booster architecture developed in DEEP from a hardware point of view in terms of processor technology, network interconnect, and storage. On the software side of the project the central research topics will be I/O and resiliency. The 14 project partners involved ensure that both hardware as well as software parts are closely integrated and fine-tuned with chosen applications. These seven exemplary applications stem from various scientific and engineering fields and will be in the need of Exascale soon.
