The Fortissimo 2 project is calling for proposals for HPC-Cloud Application Experiments from the field of high-performance data analytics. Open call is targeting experiments that deliver business benefits for manufacturing and engineering SMEs and mid-caps.
Innovation in the experiments shall be addressed at all levels of the value chain:
1. End-users get "one-stop-shop" access to simulation technologies novel to them involving coupling of codes on an HPC-system or analysis of complex data, for example for using the benefits of real-time response in the HPC and Big Data cloud.
2. Independent software vendors provide access to their software either in the HPC enabled modelling and simulation domain or in the Big Data analytics domain and ensure the full and effective use of the available resources.
3. Domain and software experts deliver the innovative ICT solution to the end-user while making sure that the HPC and Big Data Cloud resources provided by the Fortissimo Marketplace are used effectively
4. Resource providers arrange efficient, secure and adequately private access to well-managed HPC or Big Data analytics resources.
