With the first prototype of BalticLSC system due in June 2020, the consortium partners have met in Tartu to discuss all the possible functionalities of the system that need to be incorporated into the prototype. After several heavy rounds of discussions technological partners together with business partners have come up with several solutions for the system to be tested during the first piloting phase. Those include but are not limited to selection methods of the HPC resource providers, distribution of orders among different resource providers as well as billing options for companies, reimbursement methods etc.
However, consortium partners have agreed that, in order to develop a fully operational system, a number of pre-selected case studies is needed to build initial functionalities based on companies’ needs. Later, when the system is going to be upgraded, additional supplements should be programmed on top of the existing ones and thus the capabilities of the system would be expanded. With the technological partners being busy buying hardware and integrating it into a supercomputer network within the Baltic sea region as well as developing software and doing some programming for the system, the detection of relevant case studies has been assigned to business partners.
If your company has a vast amount of raw, yet labelled, data that needs to be processed fast and efficient but you lack supercomputing power and even human resources to run major computations, BalticsLSC is under development to help you. Contact any of the consortium partners to rest your case so that we could build our system based on your needs and provide you with the services tailored to your particular situation. All computation services including consultations during the piloting phases of the system will be free of charge.
