Navigation and service


Six real-world HPC applications have been involved from the very beginning, driving a co-design process with their requirements both for the hardware and system software/API aspects. The selected applications have been continuously optimised for the Cluster/Booster architecture and for the CPU technologies used (Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi). The end result is a system that fits the needs of the applications, and application showcases that demonstrate the efficiency and performance of the DEEP system.

ApplicationsDEEP applications distribute the compute load between the cluster and the booster

The simulation codes stem from different fields of science and engineering and are ported and optimised for the DEEP system by the project partners.
