Bull is playing an active role in many French and European research consortia to develop the Extreme Computing technologies of tomorrow. This is a major opportunity for Bull to exchange with advanced Extreme Computing users and understand the expectations of the HPC community. Bull is committed to projects such as:

Bull is also keen to develop partnerships and knowledge transfer with customers, for the mutual benefit of both partners:

The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne, Bull and Microsoft have signed a partnership agreement to enable a new hybrid (Windows / Linux) operating environment to be implemented across the entire bullx supercomputer acquired by the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne. The supercomputer, which has been installed at the University's Champagne-Ardenne Computing Center, is destined to meet the intensive computing needs of researchers and businesses in the Champagne-Ardenne region.

Bull and the CEA (French Atomic Agency) have co-designed Tera 100, the first European-made supercomputer to break the petaflops barrier.
" Tera 100's proven performance clearly demonstrates the quality of the partnership between the CEA-DAM's teams and those from Bull in technologies that are vital both to State sovereignty and corporate competitiveness," said Jean Gonnord, Director for Numerical Simulation & Computer Sciences at CEA/DAM. "This opens up the way for even more powerful systems, and for even greater co-operation in the design and development of the next generation of European computers; the Exa-scale systems that are expected to appear before 2020."
