Barcelona Supercomputing Centre to Optimize Storage and Data Analysis with PPI4HPC

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) will provide a new storage infrastructure for enhanced data analysis capabilities thanks to the PPI4HPC (Public Procurement of Innovations for High Performance Computing). “The proposed infrastructure includes a disk tier built on all-flash technology and spinning disk drives. It changes the way underlying physical drives are managed, accessed and rebuilt in case of failures in order to minimize the impact to the scientific applications. It is a High-Performance Analytics compute infrastructure to run data analytics operations with the latest Power microprocessors and NVMe PCIe local storage to accelerate the workloads.”

European Supercomputing Centers Adopt Joint Procurement Process

Some of Europe’s leading supercomputing centers have joined forces to create a buyers group that will enable joint public procurement of new HPC systems. “The new partnership of four public HPC centers (BSC, CINECA, JSC, and GENCI), located in four different countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, and France) means that new supercomputers can be procured through a market consultation for the purchase of HPC systems. This group will operate under as part of the Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions for High-Performance Computing (PPI4HPC) project.”
