NEXTGenIO was one of several EC-funded exascale projects that we started work on last year. Here’s what’s been happening since it launched.

Connecting business to HPC and cloud resources

Fortissimo is a collaborative EC-funded project that enables European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a high performance computing (HPC) cloud infrastructure.

Building a scaleable, extensible data infrastructure

Modern genome-sequencing technologies are easily capable of producing data volumes that can swamp a genetic researcher’s existing computing infrastructure. EPCC is working with the breeding company Aviagen to build a system that allows such researchers to scale up their data infrastructures to handle these increases in volume without compromising their analytical pipelines.

SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) is a pan-European initiative supported by PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by high-performance computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness. SHAPE allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.

The Met Office/NERC Cloud model (MONC) has been developed in a collaboration between EPCC and the Met Office. MONC delivers a highly scalable and flexible Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model capable of simulating clouds and other turbulent flows at resolutions of tens of metres on very large domains.

EPCC will be exhibiting at this year’s Supercomputing in Engineering Show at the Derby Roundhouse on the 15th and 16th April. The show is run in parallel with the Engineering Simulation Show and attendance is free, so this is an ideal opportunity for you to come and talk to us about how we can help transform your simulation and modeling activities using High Performance Computing.

Collaboration with UK Met Office

We are working with the UK Met Office on a project to rewrite one of their weather forecasting models. Whilst the best known weather model is the Unified Model (UM), which generates the national and international forecast on a scale of 1km, the Met Office also has a number of other specialist models that concentrate on specific areas.  An example of this is in the study of cloud and cloud convection, in which case one often uses a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model which handles turbulence in much more detail. 

HPC for business

The Fortissimo project, which is coordinated here at EPCC, gives companies a low-risk opportunity to try out HPC. By combining it with cloud computing, they can gain the benefits without buying and running their own systems. Here are three examples of HPC in action under Fortissimo.
