 Project objective

The FET project “EXTRA” (Exploiting eXascale Technology with Reconfigurable Architectures) aimed at devising efficient ways to deploy ultra-efficient heterogeneous compute nodes for future exascale High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. One major outcome was the development of a framework for mapping applications to reconfigurable hardware, relying on the concept of Decoupled Access – Execute (DAE) approach.

This project focuses on the commercialization of the EXTRA framework for cloud HPC platforms. More specifically, it targets the deployment of Virtual Machines (VMs) that integrate the EXTRA DAE Reconfigurable Architecture (EDRA) on custom hardware within the cloud infrastructure of one of the largest cloud service providers, the Amazon Web Services marketplace. End-users will be able to automatically map their applications to “EDRA-enhanced” VMs, and directly deploy them onto Amazon’s cloud infrastructure for optimal performance and minimal cost.

Towards a successful exploitation outcome, the project will put effort on (a) applying the required software- and hardware-level modifications on the current EXTRA framework to comply with Amazon’s infrastructure, (b) devising a business strategy to effectively address various user groups, and (c) disseminating the benefits of this solution to large public events and summits.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "EDRA" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
