Supercomputers in the near future will be different from today’s HPC (High Performance Computing) systems in many ways. The process towards more computing power involves a divergence from the traditional approach of “scaling out by just adding more building blocks”, and has to rely on innovation across the stack considering the three key challenges performance at scale, energy efficiency, and resilience.

The REGALE project started in April 2021. It aims to build a software stack that is not only capable of bringing efficiency to tomorrow’s HPC systems. It also will be open and scalable for massive supercomputers. REGALE brings together leading supercomputing stakeholders, prestigious academics, top European supercomputing centers and end users from critical target sectors, covering the entire value chain in system software and applications for extreme scale technologies.
