European research institutes link computing power to create megacomputer
Eight European research institutes are linking four supercomputers to create one powerful megacomputer in a bid to boost Europe’s competitiveness in scientific areas where extreme performance is needed.
Connecting the four national supercomputing infrastructures at European level will greatly enhance the speed of complex scientific calculations and allow scientists to perform research that would otherwise have been impossible. The innovative strategy, called Distributed Infrastructure for Super Computing Applications (DEISA), is partly funded by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) .
