Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming

Expert-to-expert support to parallelize applications
so as to use future supercomputers to their maximum capacity

Most intensive computing applications used today will not be able to fully utilize the power of tomorrow's supercomputers. HPC industry and users will need to work closely together to adapt applications to future highly parallel system architectures, and thus ensure that research centres and companies will truly benefit from technological advances. Bull and its partners are ready to help HPC users tackle this major challenge, and maximize benefits for their research and innovation.

Adopting parallelism in software is not optional, it is mandatory

In many areas, proprietary or specialized codes were developed many years ago and are not suited to many-core, which is the foundation of future systems. The challenge for HPC developers is now to adapt their codes so as to fully leverage the computing power and energy savings brought by more and more parallel structures at processor and system level, such as the new Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor.

This is where the expertise of Bull comes in

To help HPC users come to grips with parallelism, Bull launched its Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming, the first European center of industrial and technical excellence for parallel programming.

Leveraging a team of experts unique in Europe - more than 300 engineers - the Centre for Excellence in Parallel Programming delivers the highest level of expertise and skills to help organizations optimize their applications to take advantage of the new many-core technologies.

The Centre for Excellence in Parallel Programming provides a large portfolio of services, from analysis, consulting, parallelization, to optimization of application codes.

The Center benefits from the close cooperation of Bull and Intel in supercomputing and parallel computing, combining access to the latest Intel-based hardware products, to software, to technologies in computing, network and storage, and to expertise from both companies.
