Organisation profile

Our main investigation objectives will address the research and technology challenges of meeting the requirements of next generation Cloud Computing architectures for the efficient execution of compute and data-intensive High Performance Computing services. We have defined four strategic research objectives that correspond with the four architectural layers of HPC for Efficient Applications & Simulation (hpc4eas): Performance and Efficiency in the use of HPC resources, User Availability of HPC Resources, Design and Optimization of HPC Systems for Specific "Workloads" (application-specific domains) and Social Projection Applications. The results of the these research lines will offer a considerable improvement in resource utilization, energy efficiency and cost of current scientific and business infrastructures; will support new provisioning models for computing centres to offer on-demand capacity in order to scale user’s environment and accommodate ongoing growth, and will establish the principals of porting HPC applications to clusters and Clouds.
