Baltic Large Scale Computing
Innovative businesses such as ship design, marine engineering and biotechnology require access to large scale computing to process large quantities of data. This access is currently limited to global enterprises and large research centres. The project BalticLSC creates a supercomputing environment comprising hardware prototypes, software tools and application recommendations. It offers these services to small and medium sized enterprises for new product development. In this way, small research centres can use their computing resources more efficiently.
The aim of Baltic Large-Scale Computing (BalticLSC) project is to significantly increase capacities to create new innovative data-intense and computation-intense products and services by a vast array of smaller actors in the Baltic Sea Region. The project will analyse and develop a universal and practical solution – the BalticLSC (Supercomputing) Environment: a hardware Platform and easy-to-use Software. It will assure scalability, affordability, ease-of-use, and efficient distribution across the BSR.
The BalticLSC Environment will impact the Baltic Sea Region (and beyond) by significantly supporting two major groups of actors. First, it will significantly facilitate the emergence of new LSC service providers. Even small start-ups will be able to take up the BalticLSC specifications and create their own local LSC centres. Moreover, several such local centres will be able to network and combine their computing capacities, distributed trans-nationally. Second, even very small innovation and design centres will be able to develop easily their own computing applications within the emerging BalticLSC environment. This way, they will significantly reduce time-to-market of innovative engineering products through easy access to LSC resources that were previously not accessible and too difficult to use.
