Transnational Access Programme for a Pan-European Network of HPC Research Infrastructures and Laboratories for scientific computing

Deliverables

Second HPC-Europa3 research projects directory

This directory, which will be compiled in electronic format, will contain the project reports of the users whose visits were completed during the period PM19-36, organised by scientific discipline.  The directory will be made available on the HPC-Europa3 website and disseminated via all the available channels.

Report on the Workshops for SMEs

This report summarizes the outcomes of the three workshops organized for increasing the SMEs awareness of the HPC methods and benefits.

Orchestration of applications packaged as containers

This deliverable will report on the studied mechanisms to package single steps of a pipeline in the form of application containers and on the different investigated ways to orchestrate their execution to compose the desired workflow. It also will report on the identified constraints in the container orchestration system required to support the envisaged execution model.

Second Transnational Access Summary report

Second report on the Transnational Access activity, including statistics relating to the number of applications received, users given access, and computing time used with summary data and details for each centre. This report will also include information about the outreach and dissemination activities, selection procedure, Transnational Access Users’ Meeting, and any other issues relating to the Transnational Access.

Workload collocation based on container technologies to improve isolation

This deliverable will report the design followed to implement the workload collocation, together with the design and implementation details of the Dynamic Resource Assignment. The document will also include the results of the evaluation of the implementation of the collocation concept.

First HPC-Europa3 research projects directory

This directory, which will be compiled in electronic format, will contain the project reports of the users whose visits were completed during the period PM1-18, organised by scientific discipline.  The directory will be made available on the HPC-Europa3 website and disseminated via all the available channels.

Container-as-a-service analysis report

This deliverable will report on the evaluation of different container/virtualization technologies in terms of supported features, already known advantages and drawbacks, together with the level of community acceptance. It will also describe the architecture of the proposed container-as-a-service solution for HPC building on the chosen technology. It will include: Overview of system management and application deployment on clusters deployed on bare metal, virtual machines and containers along with considerations, advantages and disadvantages of each approach; statement of the problems which containerized applications can address; information on the architecture and technologies to be used together with any needed configuration; Report on security issues; Examination of potential performance impacts which require investigation in subsequent benchmarking tasks; Examples of applications deployed with the container-as-a-service architecture for HPC.

Benchmarking results

This deliverable will present all benchmarking information and results obtained.

Container-as-a-service technical documentation

This deliverable will represent the container-as-a-service technical documentation which will include: information on the architecture and technologies to be used together with any needed configuration, report on repeatability of results, report on security issues, and examples of applications deployed with the container-as-a-service for HPC.

Marketing Plan

The Marketing Plan will establish the membership and duties of the Marketing Team, and describe in detail the dissemination activities, which will be used to identify and communicate with potential new user groups.  It will co-ordinate the actions to publicise HPC-Europa3 to prevent duplication of effort, and will ensure that effort is maintained throughout the lifetime of the programme.

First Transnational Access Summary report

First report on the Transnational Access activity, including statistics relating to the number of applications received, users given access, and computing time used with summary data and details for each centre. This report will also include information about the outreach and dissemination activities, selection procedure, and any other issues relating to the Transnational Access.

Using containers technologies to improve portability of applications in HPC

This deliverable will include: Overview of the issues to be addressed when porting an application to a containerized platform; Technical information about the integration with queuing systems; Technical information about MPI interactions; and Optimizations implemented and/or identified.

Sustainability roadmap

This document will identify the services that need to be sustained, how these services map into the European HPC landscape, and identify potential sources of funding for these services.
