Computing power: HYDDA brings together the Cloud and HPC to respond to new needs

The HYDDA project seeks to develop an innovative platform, bringing together the Cloud and HPC, to provide an  economical solution for the heavy computing needs of businesses of all sizes.

Personalised medicine requires considerable computing power. The same is true of fields such as digital simulation, scientific research and the IoT. However, many innovative companies do not have the means to invest in a Data centre. Through the HYDDA project, IMT Atlantique and its partners propose a technical solution for developing distributed execution platforms dedicated to processing huge quantities of data leveraging both the Cloud and HPC resources. These HPDA (High Performance Data Analysis) solutions will be accessible through payment on demand.

The HYDDA project brings together IMT Atlantique (with the help of Armines) and prestigious industrial partners (Atos, and Dassault Aviation), a local SME (EasyVirt), the Integrated Centre for Oncology (ICO) and the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (Grenoble Alps University). The project was ratified for a duration of three years, under the auspices of the National Information Society Foundation of the Future Investments Programme (PIA). Jean-Marc Menaud, lecturer in the Automation, CIM and Computer Science Department coordinates this project for IMT Atlantique.
