Wiki page for EGI InSPIRE SA3 TSA3.2.5 (MPI) activities



This task encompasses the Support for parallel computing (MPI) function. MPI applications are critical for many user communities, but the integration of this capability into the general infrastructure has been difficult. The task focuses on improvements to the core services and software needed to support MPI. In particular, commitment from two of the Heavy User Communities (HUC), CCMST and Fusion, will ensure that the needs and requirements of all user communities are met.
