The principal objective for the project is to facilitate the development of a software environment that meets the demands of the new generation of HPC architectures. This will cover the whole software stack (system and programming environments), numerical solvers and pre/post/co processing software.
A co-design approach is employed, that covers the software environment for computer architectures, the requirements of more demanding applications, and is adapted to future hardware architectures (multicore/many core processors, high-speed networks and data storage).
These developments will be validated according to their capacity to deal with the new exascale challenges- larger scalability, higher resiliency, greater security, improved modularity, with better abstraction and interactivity for application cases.
