EUPEX aims to develop and demonstrate the first European platform for HPC, gathering and integrating European technologies from system architecture, processor, system software and development tools all the way to applications. The EUPEX platform will be designed to be open, scalable and flexible. Primary users of this first-of-its-kind platform will be scientific and industrial stakeholders who are developing HPC technologies to build production-grade prototypes. The pilot system will also serve as a development vehicle for software and applications in collaboration with European key user communities.
EUPEX aims to directly support an emerging and vibrant European entrepreneurial ecosystem around European HPC technology, addressing related sectors such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data processing. It will be a vehicle to prepare communities working in the fields of HPC, AI and Big Data for the upcoming European Exascale systems and federated HPC infrastructure.
