European Technology Platform to focus on high performance computing
June 19, 2012 // Julien Happich
Major suppliers of High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies including Allinea, ARM, Bull, Caps Entreprise, Eurotech, IBM, Intel, ParTec, STMicroelectronics and Xyratex in association with HPC research centres BSC, CEA, CINECA, Fraunhofer, Forschungszentrum Juelich and LRZ have created a European Technology Platform for HPC (ETP4HPC).
The partners have released the ETP's Vision document to improve Europes position in the domain of HPC technologies. HPC is an indispensable instrument to resolve problems of highest complexity that require extremely large and efficient computational and storage capabilities for activities such as modelling natural phenomena (e.g., weather, climate change, or epidemics), optimizing energy resources, researching novel materials, and shortening engineering development cycles fostering innovation across the region. The European Commissions communication High Performance Computing: Europes place in a Global Race perfectly underlines the strategic nature of HPC and sees a European Technology Platform (ETP) playing a crucial role. The ETP is an industry led forum open to any organization performing research in the area of HPC technologies in Europe with the objective to define Europes research priorities in developing European technology in all segments of the HPC solution supply chain. The ETP strengthens European competitiveness in the area of HPC, which is a key requirement for future research and innovation as well as addressing a wide range of social and economic challenges.
