ExaNeSt H2020 Research Project: Exascale High Performance Computing
European eXAscale system interconNEct and STorage (ExaNeSt)
The ExaNeSt H2020 research project aims at providing powerful infrastructure solutions for HPC systems in the areas of computing, storage, interconnect and cooling. ExaNeSt is addressing HPC challenges by using ARMv8 energy-efficient cores, close integration of non-volatile memory, efficient interconnects and virtualization features.
ExaNest is all about scalability to an exascale range, and this is achieved through:
Storage: fast, distributed in-node non-volatile memory
Interconnect: low-latency, unified compute & storage traffic
Packaging: advanced, liquid cooling
Virtualization: transparent guest acceleration with MPI capabilities
In this project Virtual Open Systems contributes its virtualization expertise and know-how, in the areas of efficient live migration, inter-VM networking communication and VM-based MPI infrastructure.
ExaNeSt project is also cross-fertilized with other European R&D projects, including:
