Program:

The COCA contract comprises of two parts. The first one aims at designing, evaluating and optimizing a prototype high performance computing infrastructure well-suited for scientific numerical simulation. The second one relates to the problematic of the reusability of numerical models. The Paris project-team contributes to the first part of the COCA contract.

Starting time:

March 1, 2003

Ending time:

July 31, 2005

Project contribution:

The high-performance computing infrastructure considered in the COCA contract is a federation of medium-size clusters, each cluster running a Single System Image (SSI) operating system. The work carried out by the Paris Project-Team relates to the design and implementation of Kerrighed SSI cluster operating system. Four successive releases of Kerrighed will be delivered as part of the COCA contract with an increasing set of functionalities: (1) Global memory management (V0.70); (2) Global management of memory, processes, data streams and files (V1.0); (3) Checkpointing mechanisms for parallel applications (V.1.10, based on V1.0); and (4) Full-fledged SSI, highly available system (V2.0, based on V.1.10). Moreover, the Paris Project-Team will study extensions to Kerrighed operating system to make it a Grid-aware operating system for cluster federations.
