Energy efficiency is a generic term which refers to the ratio between the useful energy output of a process and the energy input to this process. The interest on building more energy-efficient DC has increased along with the outburst of Cloud computing, the use of Internet and of Data Centres (DC) to enable this paradigm. Whereas energy efficiency is necessary to reduce...

In the next decade, EU industries developing Critical Real-Time Embedded Systems (CRTES) (safety, mission or business critical) will face a once-in-a-life-time disruptive challenge caused by the transition to multicore processors and the advent of manycores, tantamount to complex networked systems. This challenge brings the opportunity to integrate multiple applications onto...

The recent technological advancements and market trends are causing an interesting phenomenon towards the convergence of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Embedded Computing (EC) domains. On one side, new kinds of HPC applications are being required by markets needing huge amounts of information to be processed within a bounded amount of time. On the other side, EC systems...

The Mont-Blanc project aims to develop a European Exascale approach leveraging on commodity power-efficient embedded technologies. The project has developed a HPC system software stack on ARM, and will deploy the first integrated ARM-based HPC prototype by 2014, and is also working on a set of 11 scientific applications to be ported and tuned to the prototype system.

The goal of this proposal is to create a coordination activity among consortia involved in the ICT-ENERGY subject with specific reference to bringing together the existing “Toward Zero-Power ICT” community organized within the ZEROPOWER C.A. and the novel “MINECC” (Minimising energy consumption of computing to the limit) community recently funded under...

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain diseases and build revolutionary new computing technologies. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within sight. The goal of the Human...

The EUBrazilCC project was a first step towards providing a user-centric, cross-Atlantic test bench for European & Brazilian research communities. EUBrazilCC was centred in practical scientific use cases, and it is built on a close collaboration among European & Brazilian excellence centres.

EUBrazilCC exploited & coordinated, through a 2...

The project DEEP-ER (DEEP-Extended Reach) addresses two significant Exascale challenges: the growing gap between I/O bandwidth and compute speed, and the need to significantly improve system resiliency.

DEEP-ER will extend the Cluster-Booster architecture of the Dynamical Exascale Entry...

Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT (ASCETiC) was focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying, and running software in Clouds. At the same time, quality of service, experience and perception was taken into account, so...

Data-centres form the central brains and store for the Information Society and are a key resource for innovation and leadership. The key challenge has recently moved from just delivering the required performance, to include consuming reduced energy and lowering cost of ownership. Together, these create an inflection point that provides a big opportunity for Europe, which...
