The container engine for combining container portability with native HPC performance
Sarus bridges the gap between container portability and native HPC performance. By using OCI hooks it enables vendors to deliver maximum hardware performance inside a generic container. Sarus has been designed to integrate with unique features of HPC infrastructures such as parallel filesystem, batch schedulers, GPU accelerators or MPI. Sarus has been developed with users in mind and provide a Docker-style command-line interface.
HPC native performance for common Docker containers
Integrates with HPC infrastructures and software
Customizes containers at runtime with standard plugins
Provides a Docker-like command-line interface
The REST interface for programming access to HPC resources
FirecREST is bringing the world of programmable Web applications to HPC infrastructure. It uses Web-enabled REST API to expose in a programable way the access of HPC resources including the capability to interact with an HPC workload manager or to move data from/to HPC storage. Such a modern and externally accessible interface enables users to build new tools, integrate workflow managers with standard technology or develop web services and portals that can use HPC resources.
Accessibility: opens web access to HPC from any device
Adaptability: modular design to support diverse HPC ecosystems
Security: provides multiple authorization control layers
Programmability: uses standard interface for a simplified automation
EuroCC Project - NCC Switzerland
The EuroCC Project brings together the necessary expertise to set up a network of National Competence Centres (NCCs) in HPC across Europe with over 30 participating members and associated states, to provide a broad service portfolio tailored to the respective national needs of industry, academia and public administrations.
Within the EuroCC project, ETH Zurich / CSCS is tasked with establishing a National Competence Centre (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing (HPC) in Switzerland, its respective country. The Swiss NCC coordinates activities in all HPC-related fields at the national level and serves as a contact point for customers from industry, science, (future) HPC experts, and the general public alike.
