New Report: PRACE in the EuroHPC Era

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe has published a new report: PRACE in the EuroHPC Era. PRACE is an international non-profit association with its seat in Brussels. “The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking will advance the European supercomputer landscape by completing the infrastructure pyramid at the top level with European leadership-class supercomputers. In a context of a strong international competition with USA, China and Japan, this development is highly expected by all stakeholders of HPC in Europe. For the European HPC users from science and industry, i.e. industrials and SMEs, the seamless integration of these new top-level systems and services into the existing European HPC-ecosystem is an issue of paramount importance.”

CESNET Deploys Ciena Waveserver AI for Research

Today CESNET announced the research community’s first deployment of Ciena´s Waveserver Ai platform. The Czech research organization has interconnected GÉANT´s high-capacity routers using a 300 Gbps alien wavelength over 530km of CESNET network with Czech Light Open Line System. “Our network is designed to support the transfer of extremely large data sets and dedicated photonic services among geographically dispersed locations.”

Géant Expands Europe’s National Research and Education Network

Géant, Europe’s collaboration on e-infrastructure and services for research and education, and operator of the network that interconnects Europe’s National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), has extended its 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network into data centers.

Europe Gets Why Big Data Needs Networks

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Tom Wilkie writes that the way Europe has joined up its networks not only supports supercomputing on the continent, but also offers a model for international cooperation that might have lessons for the development of next-generation technology.
