Nine Prace Prototypes Are Available For Testing

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

Researchers from academia and industry have until April 11, 2010, to submit applications for an opportunity to test prototypes of potential future high-performance computing (HPC) petascale systems. The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is making nine different prototypes available, including three prototypes of hybrid clusters. The prototypes are not intended for production work.

PRACE, which will give priority to teams focusing on research in areas that are different from the partnership's research, will publicly release a summary of the applicants' project purpose and the results achieved during prototype testing. Researchers will be able to use the prototype systems for three months per application. The project will allow PRACE to research petascale prototypes, as well as the scaling and optimization of applications on petascale machines.

Selections will be made on May 1.
