Collaboration within the competitiveness pole I-Trans
I-Trans is the official industrial cluster, which aims at bringing together major French actors in rail technology and innovative transport systems. Thier needs in computation power are huge and thus the DaRT project strongly participates to this initiative through the collaborations with both concerned academic and industrial actors, to design a new GPU-based server which aims to reach the Petaflops performance.
In this direction, we already have many discussions with the leading partner of this project : GPUTech. These discussions lead to the build of a smaller pre-prototype for this machine, and also the design of a set of applications which should be ported to this new plateform. This is were the DaRT project strongly contribute with its experience in massively parallel architectures.
