PRACE partners launch Pre-Commercial Procurement: Whole-System Design for Energy Efficient HPC

23 Nov 2013 Brussels - The Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP): Whole-System Design for Energy Efficient HPC, will be a multi-country and multi-partner joint effort, implemented by a consortium composed of several partners of PRACE including CINECA, Italy; CSC, Finland; EPCC, UK; JSC, Germany; and GENCI, France. Tenderers are invited to bid for the provision of research and development services that seek solutions for Whole-System Design for Energy Efficient HPC. PRACE has a strong interest in improving energy efficiency of computing systems and reducing their environmental impact. Therefore, PRACE aisbl will be involved as an advisory body in a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) pilot executed in the context of PRACE's 3rd Implementation Project (PRACE-3IP).

The Tender Specifications can be found as of 20 November 2013 at the following web sites:
