Bull Direct:


September 2006

Accelerating the development of new services
Following on from the worldwide recognition of the technological excellence demonstrated by Bull – with the TERA-10 supercomputer, delivered to the French Atomic Energy Authority (CEA) – I’d like to focus for a moment on some of the initiatives we have recently taken in the world of services.

Beyond the limit
By Jean-François Lavignon,
Director of High-Performance Computing Solutions, Bull

"High Performance Computing (HPC) has become an essential tool in the worlds of research and industry alike. From aeronautics, climatology and bioscience to finance and sport, computer modeling and simulation have made inroads into most areas.
Quite simply because HPC provides today’s researchers with an essential means of investigation, creates major competitive advantage for manufacturers and business, and is even fundamental to countries’ national sovereignty. " >>
