HLRS Projects

Staff scientists at HLRS are involved in dozens of funded collaborative research projects, working closely with academic and industrial partners from across Europe to address key problems facing the future of high-performance computing. Many of these projects also involve applied research to address global challenges where HPC can provide new kinds of practical solutions. In addition, HLRS is leading multiple international projects focused on increasing HPC expertise across Europe.


Gaia-X4ICM

The goal of Gaia-X4ICM is to implement a scaling production platform based on the Gaia-X ecosystem for the InnovationCampus Mobility of the Future (ICM) to make Gaia-X more usable for production of planning systems, industrial controls, and sensor data, among other applications.

EUXDAT

EUXDAT is a Horizon 2020 project building an e-infrastructure addressing agriculture, land monitoring, and energy efficiency for sustainable development.


MIKELANGELO

The vision of MIKELANGELO is to improve responsiveness, agility and security of the virtual infrastructure through packaged applications, using the lean guest operating system OSv and the newly developed superfast hypervisor sKVM.


DreamCloud

The project aims to develop novel load balancing mechanisms that can be applied during runtime in a wide range of parallel and high performance computing systems, allowing for a fine-tuning of the trade-off between performance guarantees and system efficiency according to the application needs.


PaaSage

Cloud computing is revolutionising the IT industry through its support for utility service-oriented Internet computing without the need for large capital outlays in hardware to deploy their services or the human expense to operate.


ECO2Clouds

Ecological implications of cloud-based IT infrastructures are creating a critical gap in the current state of the art in research and business. The ECO2Clouds project investigated strategies that can ensure effective application deployment on the cloud infrastructure, reduce energy consumption and by association CO2 emissions and furthermore the costs of the whole execution.


BonFIRE

The BonFIRE project designed, built, and operated a multi-site cloud facility to support applications, services, and systems research targeting the Internet of Services community within the Future Internet.


OPTIMIS

The motivation for OPTIMIS is the vision that hybrid clouds will become commonplace, realized by private clouds interacting with a rich ecosystem of public and other cloud providers.
