The LEXIS (Large-Scale EXecution for Industry & Society) project aims to build an advanced, geographically- distributed, HPC infrastructure for the convergence between Big Data (BD) analytics and High Performance Computing (HPC) within three targeted large scale pilot test-beds (Aeronautics turbomachinery and rotating parts design, Weather forecast and Tsunami/earthquake detection).
By proposing innovative technologies and exploiting data available from test-bed partners, LEXIS aims to generate valuable outcomes and improve efficiency and quality of services provided to different stakeholders involved in the test-beds. The developed services will be available to external stakeholders with the aim of stimulating the interest of European industries and creating an ecosystem of organizations that could benefit from the implemented platform. LEXIS will address key strategic objectives that will be transversally pursued all across the work.
The aim is to demonstrate the benefits of the project in the context of three industrial test-beds, leveraging modern technologies from HPC, Big Data, and Cloud computing.
