The LEXIS (Large-scale EXecution for Industry & Society) project has built an advanced engineering platform at the confluence of HPC, Cloud and Big Data, which leverages existing, geographically distributed large-scale resources in a federation of established EU supercomputing centres. It employs Big Data Analytics solutions, and augments them with Cloud services.
Driven by the requirements of several pilot test cases, the LEXIS platform relies on best-in-class data management solutions (EUDAT) and advanced, distributed orchestration solutions (TOSCA), augmenting them with new, efficient hardware and platform capabilities (e.g. in the form of Data Nodes and federation, usage monitoring and accounting/billing support).
Thus, LEXIS has realised an innovative solution aimed at stimulating the interest of European industry and at creating an ecosystem of organisations that benefit from the LEXIS platform and its well-integrated HPC, HPDA and Data Management solutions.
