Cray EMEA Research Lab (CERL)
The Cray EMEA Research Lab (CERL) performs research and development in strategic areas that strengthen Cray’s leadership in high-performance computing and data analytics, and which deepen Cray’s involvement in the scientific and technical communities of EMEA.
CERL is focused on collaborative R&D and codesign efforts, R&D and codesign efforts, including:
- Software codesign
- Experimental hardware codesign
- In-house innovation projects
- European-funded research programs
- Collaborations with partners/customers and Centers of Excellence
- Internships and student hosting
CERL research is currently focused on workflow and component optimization for HPC and analytics frameworks, machine learning and the role of new technologies such as nonvolatile memory. CERL can bring deep expertise in the more traditional HPC ecosystem along with expertise in machine learning, asynchronous tasking, data analytics and mathematical optimization.
Centres of Excellence (CoE)
CERL staff provide the expertise within the Centers of Excellence for ARCHER in Edinburgh and at KAUST in Saudi Arabia. The CoE are a forum for bespoke deep technical engagements where, for example, advanced software is designed specifically for the needs of the customer’s application base.
We are involved in a number of software/hardware codesign projects. For example, we are involved in the QPACE4 project with University of Regensburg, where we are codesigning systems for lattice QCD based around the ARMv8 architecture.
