Developing for exascale - Interview with Piero Vicini, coordinator of the European supercomputer project ExaNeSt for the Italian INFN
13 Jan 2016 - The INFN newsletter interviews Piero Vicini, coordinator of the European supercomputer project ExaNeSt. ExaNeSt is a research project funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 framework programme. It will contribute to the development of large-scale parallel HPC Exascale systems. Production of these systems should start within the next five to seven years. "At the end of the project, the ExaNeSt system prototype should permit us to embark on the pre-competitive development stage and then start on production engineering. In this context, the INFN will once again have a role in the HPC systems of the future, in terms of ideas and the capabilities to implement innovative, non-conventional solutions", says Piero Vicini.
