New blog article by RED-SEA experts! Part of our work to prepare a new-generation network interconnect for the future European Exascale systems consists in evaluating new designs through simulation. We’re using VEF Traces to reproduce communication traffic of parallel applications in high-performance interconnection network simulators. Want to know more about the VEF Traces framework? Read […]
Live from SC22: Pr Torsten Hoefler, director of the Scalable Parallel Computing Laboratory (SPCL) at ETH Zurich that is involved in our project, received the 2022 IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach award. This award recognises Torsten’s outstanding contribution to application-aware design of HPC algorithms, systems and architectures, and trnasformative impact on scientific computing and industry. We are […]
The RED-SEA researchers have recently shared their findings in two project deliverables. Check our Results page! D2.3 RoCE and IPoverBXI Evaluation Report D4.3 Planned MPI-related optimizations You may also be interested in our latest blog post: Development of multirail feature in MPC for BXI interconnect.
To make it easier to find the RED-SEA publications and deliverables, we have created a RED-SEA community in Zenodo, the open repository developed under the European OpenAIRE program and operated by CERN. Visit regularly to see what’s going on at RED-SEA!
Don’t miss the webinar organised by our partner project IO-SEA on 13 October 2022: “Software for exascale architectures driven by hierarchical storage management approach”. The webinar will present a novel data management and storage platform for exascale computing based on hierarchical storage management (HSM) and ephemeral data life-cycle management. The aim of the platform is […]
On 5 August 2022, the SEA projects were featured in an HPCwire article entitled “SEA Changes: How EuroHPC Is Preparing for Exascale“. The article details the contributions of DEEP-SEA, IO-SEA and RED-SEA for the imminent arrival of European exascale computing. This was the outcome of the “Project spotlight” on the SEA projects published by the EuroHPC […]
The RED-SEA team had its first in-person meeting since the beginning of the project at ICS-FORTH in Heraklion. It was a great pleasure to finally get to meet each other – and in such nice surroundings! A big thank you to the FORTH team for hosting us in style
The Modular Supercomputing Architecture (MSA) is at the heart of the SEA projects – the projects DEEP-SEA, IO-SEA and RED-SEA that joined forces to develop complementary European technologies for exascale supercomputing. ETP4HPC recently published a White Paper that is a good overview of the MSA initially developed by the DEEP projects. If you want to […]
RED-SEA partners Atos and CEA announced on 17 November the first partition of “EXA1”, a supercomputer developed together based on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture. Reaching 14th position in the TOP500 ranking, “CEA-HF” is interconnected by the second generation of Atos’ BullSequana eXascale Interconnect (BXI v2). Read the full Press Release on: the Atos website or the CEA website.
Our test system is now up and running with BXI Interconnect! It is an upgrade of the Dibona prototype developed by the Mont-Blanc projects. Dibona has 12 nodes, each powered by two Arm processors. It is cooled by warm water, using Atos’s Direct Liquid Cooling system (cooling by direct contact with a cold plate or […]
