The aim of this french project is to provide
algorithmic and software solutions for large scale architectures;
our focus is on performance issues. The software component provides
a flexible programming model where resource management issues and
performance optimizations are handled by the implementation. On the
other hand, current component technology does not provide adequate
data management facilities, needed for large data in widely
distributed platforms, and does not deal efficiently with dynamic
behaviors. We choose three applications ocean-atmosphere numerical
simulation, cosmology simulation, and sparse matrix solver. We
propose to study the following topics: Parallel software component
programming; Data sharing model; Network-based data migration
solution; Co-scheduling of CPU, data movement and I/O bandwidth;
High-perf. network support. The Grid5000 platform provides the
ideal environment for testing and validation of our approaches.
This project aims at building an experimental Grid platform gathering
8 sites geographically distributed in France. The main purpose of this
platform is to serve as an experimental testbed for research in Grid
Computing. This project is one initiative of the French ACI Grid
Grid'5000 is a research effort developping a large scale nation wide
infrastructure for Grid research. 10 laboratories are involved,
nation wide, in the objective of providing the community of Grid
researchers a testbed allowing experiments in all the software layers
between the network protocols up to the applications.
This high collaborative research effort is funded by the French
ministry of Education and Research, INRIA, CNRS, the Universities of
all sites and some regional councils.
|ACI GRID : GridASP||
The aim of this project is to validate a NES (Network
Enabled Servers) architecture on French grid with a set of
applications. Different applications in chemistry, physical,
electronic and in geology. This project leans on VTHD (and VTHD++)
project and "le centre Charles-Hermite" for the hardware technology
and is based on GASP for the software technology.
The aim of this project is to develop the software
technology dedicated to application used in an ASP (Application
Service Provider) environment on the grid. The main idea of GASP is to
integrate industrial applications in according to our another projects
(ACI, DIET, etc.).
S.T.A.R. Science and Technology Amical
Relationships. In promoting and facilitating S&T cooperation
between Korea and France, one of the key elements is financial
resource to support cooperative activities. The two sides shared the
view that, in order to promote and facilitate bilateral cooperation.
The "GRID Experiments in Aerospace Engineering" project is cooperative between SNU (Seoul National University) and INRIA.
|ACI GRID TLSE||
This project aims at setting up a Web expert site for sparse
matrices, including software and a database. Using the DIET approach,
this project will allow users to submit requests of expertise for the
solution of sparse linear systems. For example a typical request could
be "which sparse matrix reordering heuristic leads to the
smallest number of operations for my matrix ?",
or "which software is the most robust for this test problem ?"
The project members also include ENSEEIHT-IRIT (coordinator,
Toulouse, France), CERFACS (Toulouse, France) and LABRI (Bordeaux,
|ANR SOLSTICE (2007-2010)||
(SOLveurs et SimulaTIon en Calcul Extrême)
The objective of this project is to design and develop high-performance parallel linear solvers that will be efficient to solve complex multi-physics and multi-scale problems of very large size (10 to 100 millions of equations). This project also comprises LaBRI (coordinator), CERFACS, INPT-IRIT, CEA-CESTA, EADS-CCR, EDF R&D, and CNRM. We are involved in tasks related to out-of-core factorization and solution, parallelization of the analysis phase of sparse direct solvers, rank detection, hybrid direct-iterative methods and expertise site for sparse linear algebra.
