Introduction

As data becomes the centre of innovation in modern economy and society, we start to face new challenges and limitations. Although tremendous progress has happened over the past several years on increasing productivity for data processing over commodity systems and providing new services with Big Data and Cloud technologies, the projected data deluge brings business, consumers, and the society in general at a new frontier:

how can we process massive data that require demanding computation?

Creating new data-intensive services in terms of dataset size and data processing is an onerous and costly process that requires deep expertise.

It requires high performance beyond what commodity systems can achieve, describing business logic typically by writing applications code, complex software stacks that are hard to deploy and maintain, and the need to use dedicated, per application, testbeds for achieving the desired performance levels. However, most organizations today lack these resources and the associated expertise.

EVOLVE is addressing these issues as it offers new HPC-enabled capabilities in data analytics for processing massive and demanding datasets without requiring extensive IT expertise.

 

EVOLVE aims to build a large-scale testbed by integrating technology from three areas:

An advanced computing platform with HPC features and systems software.

A versatile big-data processing stack for end-to-end workflows.

Ease of deployment, access, and use in a shared manner, while addressing data protection
