"Industry Relations" Team Paves the Way to HPC Expertise
Since January 2016, JSC has provided a new central contact point for enterprises that wish to use HPC cluster systems for their R&D activities, manufacturing, or their products. The work of the "Industry Relations" team is inspired by various existing cooperations between JSC and industrial companies and by a generally increasing interest in and need for parallel computing in various fields of engineering and technology.
JSC therefore offers its expertise in HPC to potential customers from industry in the form of "simulation consulting", which ranges from software analysis and optimization techniques targeting small systems up to elaborate means of running highly parallel code on compute clusters with thousands of cores. Cooperations can be established on different levels, varying from short-term core consulting services up to large-scale project partnerships with intensive code treatment and performance enhancement. Last but not least, the Industry Relations team enables industry partners and SMEs to access Jülich know-how and experts in the rapidly emerging field of big data analytics.
This essential new interface provided by JSC emerged naturally from existing services and capabilities and aims to facilitate the transfer of specific knowledge in the field of parallel computing to a wider industrial community and to further areas of applied research and development. It offers a tremendous opportunity for cooperations that can leverage the vast potential HPC is able to deliver to IT-based R&D.
