Bull, French Atomic Energy Authority (CEA), German National High Performance Computing Center (HLRS), Intel and Quadrics announce the creation of the TALOS alliance
The five founder members of TALOS (Technologies for Advanced Large scale Open Supercomputing) have given themselves the key mission of accelerating the development in Europe of new-generation High-Performance Computing (HPC) solutions for large-scale computing systems.
5, 2007 -
Bull, the French Atomic Energy Authority (CEA), German national HPC center HLRS, Intel and Quadrics today announced the creation of the TALOS alliance, aimed at accelerating the development of high-performance computing solutions in Europe.
The five founding members - all of them major players in HPC technologies and computer simulation, as well as in servers and data processing infrastructures - are aiming to encourage the development of more open and powerful new technologies designed primarily for large-scale computing infrastructures and extensive server networks.
The TALOS alliance lines up with current development efforts in Europe aiming to provide the region with top level HPC technologies, particularly against the backdrop of the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) launched by the European Commission in 2007.
From the start, the TALOS alliance has been designed to be open to welcome new associate members, who will work on European-based research projects alongside the five founding members.
The principle objectives of the alliance are to:
Meet the technological challenges arising from large-scale computing systems and management of very high volumes of structured data.
Provide European researchers and industry with world-class tools and expertise.
