European Exascale Software Initiative

Public Group active 4 years, 10 months ago


The objective of this Support Action, co-funded by the European Commission is to build a european vision and roadmap to address the challenges of the new generation of massively parallel systems composed of millions of heterogeneous cores which will provide Petaflop performances in 2010 and Exaflop performances in 2020 (the speed of a supercomputer is measured in “FLOPS” (FLoating Point Operations Per Second)), “Petascale” supercomputers can process one quadrillion (1015) (1000 trillion) FLOPS, Exascale is computing performance is one quintillion (1018) FLOPS (one million teraflops).
