Fault Tolerant High Performance Computing

Project description

Insuring supercomputers against faults

Scientific, engineering and industrial communities rely heavily on supercomputers and their ability to perform efficiently. With their increased processing power and memory, next-generation (exascale) supercomputers are predicted to encounter at least two faults per minute, so it is imperative to find simple and effective solutions to enhance fault tolerance that won’t require high levels of expertise. The EU-funded FTHPC project aims to resolve the issue of fault tolerance by using recent advances in error correcting codes and short probabilistically checkable proofs. The success of this endeavour will eliminate the need for fault-tolerance expertise and make exascale computing accessible to all algorithm designers and programmers.
