Deisa perspectives

DEISA : perspectives

  • Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications

  • Initiative conducted by European national HPC centres in partnership with technology provider organizations, user groups in science and technology, R&D grid projects, etc.

  • Main purpose : deploy and operate a production quality, distributed supercomputing facility (the European analog of TeraGrid)

  • European FP6 Integrated Project in preparation :

    • 148 32-way IBM pSeries 690 nodes ( more than 20 Tf) already installed or commited for 2003 by national research organizations

    • Funding required to provide dedicated network interconnect and auxiliary infrastructures, as well as support for operations, high lever services to users, technology transfer actions and grid R&D

  • Deisa project structure

    DEISA: project structure

    • Core project :

      • Building and operating a production quality distributed facility, by providing single system image of homogeneous supercluster as well as global data managment at a continental scale.

      • Major focus is impact on European computational science.

      • Restricted to a fixed number of full partners. Builds on pre-existing infrastructures independently deployed by each national organization

    • Extended project :

      • Interface the distributed terascale facility with the complementary high-end systems and servers of all kinds that populate the European IT systems for science and technology (heterogeneous grid)

      • The extended project is carried with associate partners (scientific and industrial virtual organizations, technology providers)

      • Cooperation with other grid R&D projects

      • Technology transfer from grid R&D to national and european HPC infrastructures.
