Video: Building Computing and Data Centres for Exascale in the EU

In this video from the 2018 Swiss HPC Conference, Peter Hopton from the EuroEXA project shares the problems and the solutions that are being developed in the EuroEXA co-design project. “EuroEXA hardware designers work together with system software experts optimizing the entire stack from language runtimes to low-level kernel drivers, and application developers that bring in a rich mix of key HPC applications from across climate/weather, physical/energy and life-science/bioinformatics domains to enable efficient system co-design and maximize the impact of the project.”

Video: How EuroEXA is Paving the Way to Exascale

In this video, Georgios Goumas the University of Athens describes how the EuroEXA project is working to develop the exascale computers in Europe. “To accomplish this, the project takes a holistic approach innovating both across the technology and the application/system software pillars. EuroEXA proposes a balanced architecture for compute and data-intensive applications, that builds on top of cost-efficient, modular-integration enabled by novel inter-die links, utilises a novel processing unit and embraces FPGA acceleration for computational, networking and storage operations.”

EuroExa Project puts Europe on the Road to Exascale

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Robert Roe writes that the EuroExa project has Europe on the road to Exascale computing. “Ultimately, the goals for exascale computing projects are focused on delivering and supporting an exascale-class supercomputer, but the benefits have the potential to drive future developments far beyond the small number of potential exascale systems. Projects such as EuroExa and the Exascale Computing Project in the US could have far-reaching benefits for smaller-scale HPC systems.”
