Cray EMEA Research Lab (CERL) - Current projects
The Human Brain Project Precommercial Procurement
In collaboration with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre and the Human Brain Project, Cray has built an experimental pilot system for execution of neuroscientific workflows. As part of this project, a workflow optimization and memory abstraction device is being designed that will allow scientists to execute workflows (including various combinations of simulation and analysis) on the pilot system, abstracting the usage of nonvolatile memory and optimising data movement on behalf of the users.
Data-Centric Workflow Optimization
This project is taking a high-level view of the optimization of data movement in the memory and storage hierarchy applicable to both HPC and HPDA. It covers APIs, application synchronization and data-aware middleware.
This project is focused on optimizing core components of the latest analytics frameworks.
Machine Learning in HPC
This project concentrates on improved scaling of deep learning and non-ML methods.
Expertise is a European Training Network providing the next generation of engineers with a common basic knowledge on the challenges, paradigms, technologies and methodologies in the field of nonlinear structural dynamics of turbomachinery and high-performance computing. Cray's role in the project is to perform deep studies of the role of new memories on HPC application performance.
This project is developing an end-to-end planning tool for the development and operation of European energy provision.
