Extreme-scale Demonstrators

The technologies produced by the European exascale projects should be used to build prototypes of HPC systems in order to validate the performance of the technologies applied and their market preparedness. ETP4HPC suggests the implementation of Extreme-scale Demonstrators (EsDs) as a means of testing the readiness of the European HPC Technology Value Chain and the entire European HPC ecosystem to produce globally competitive HPC systems, meeting the needs of the European academic and industrial end user.

We are invoved in a discussion on this topic. To follow this discussion see European HPC Summit Week 2016 Workshop and ISC'16 Workshop.
