Optimised usage for Hybrid HPC Infrastructures

Bridging the gap between HPC and AI/ML user communities and HPC Resources is key to unleash Europe’s innovation potential. A lot of effort is done to build the European technologies able to deliver centralised, petascale/exascale HPC & ML. Fostered by increasing access from the edge of the network, it is equally important to make such resources easily and responsibly consumable.

What is HEROES ?

The HEROES project aims at developing an innovative software solution addressing both the industrial and scientific user communities. The platform will allow end users to submit their complex Simulation and ML workflows to both HPC Data Centres and Cloud Infrastructures and provide them with the possibility to choose the best option to achieve their goals in time, within budget and with the best energy efficiency.

What is our goal ?

Although the project will be able, in the future,  to provide value creation across multiple industrial sectors, the initial focus for the demonstrator will address workflows of strategic importance in the field of “Renewable Energy” and in “Manufacturing” applications where HPC is involved for the design of more Energy efficient products (for example in the design of energy efficient vehicles).

HEROES major innovations reside in its platform selection decision module and its application of marketplace concepts to HPC. The consortium involves 4 European SMEs which bring HPC to their clients and are facing everyday this market demand. A major SuperComputing Research Centre complements the project with its specific expertise in energy management and resource optimisation. HEROES is supported by Meteosim, UL Renewables, EDF and Dallara which will advise on workflows relevant to such use cases. At the end of the project, its outcomes will be commercialised and further reinforce Europe’s capacity to lead and nurture innovation in HPC.
