Centre for excellence takes Bull by the horns
Bull has inaugurated its Centre for Excellence in Parallel Programming, described as the leading European centre of technical and industrial excellence in this field. By working with technology leaders, this centre aims to support engineers and scientists in research centres and industry to overcome the critical technological barrier of 'HPC application parallelisation'.
Bull says the Centre will be equipped with the highest levels of expertise, to help research labs and companies optimise their applications so they can be compatible with not only processors available today, but also those in development for the next generation. It will supply a broad portfolio of services, including analysis and consultancy, as well as software parallelisation and optimisation.
The centre will benefit from close cooperation with Intel in the area of supercomputers and parallel computing. It will combine the latest Intel technologies in processing, network and storage technologies with technology from world leaders and players in research and industry specialising in parallel computing software and methodologies. Partners involved the Centre for Excellence in Parallel Programming already include Allinea, CAPS and the Joseph Fourier University.
