T-Platforms participates in formation of European Technology Platform for High Performance Computing

25 Jul 2011 Moscow - T-Platforms has taken part in the European HPC Technology Platform formation kick-off. Along with several other European HPC vendors, the company has contributed to the panel discussion at the 26th International Supercomputing Conference, where the process of creating a new Technology Platform has been officially initiated by PROSPECT e.V., a consortium for the "Promotion of Supercomputing Partnerships for European Competitiveness and Technology". See our also reports in Primeur Live!

The Platform, which will also be called PROSPECT, will be an industry-led association of business, research and other bodies with a primary objective to define a strategic research agenda for investments on HPC in Europe.

At the panel discussion, PROSPECT e.V. members presented to the European Commission a vision document for the development of the HPC industry in Europe through the year 2020. T-Platforms has contributed to this document as a member of the consortium. The Commission has also received a Letter of Intent signed by the consortium members, which has become the first step towards creating the Technology Platform. Representatives of HPC vendors defining the core of the future supercomputer research and development in Europe were invited to sit on the panel and talk of how they could contribute to the future Platform. These companies included T-Systems, Megware, ClusterVision, Eurotech, ParTec, IBM, HP and T-Platforms.

The European Technology Platform for HPC must ensure independent access of the European Union to strategic supercomputer technologies and help the European community realize the potentially huge economic, scientific and societal benefits of HPC. The long-term research agenda for Europe's HPC sector enabled by the Platform will seek to advance five key objectives: Europe's global leadership in inventions that successfully exploit HPC; increasingly accurate predictions on socially important phenomena, such as weather, climate change, and epidemics; achieving world-leading levels of energy efficiency in various industrial fields by using HPC; leadership in energy efficiency of HPC technologies designed in Europe; mastering the development of HPC technology components in the areas where Europe excels, and exploitation of HPC across a wide range of industries and disciplines.

"Supporting the leading European initiatives in the ecosystem of high-performance computing is an integral part of our company's strategy. We were pleased to share our hardware and software development plans and contribute to the vision document which has become the foundation of the new Technology Platform", stated Vsevolod Opanasenko, CEO of T-Platforms. "We are convinced that our expertise and ambitious R&D roadmap will contribute substantially to the development of the European HPC sector and help achieve one of the key goals in its strategy: creating an exaflops-class supercomputer by the year 2020."
