Highlights of the Year

The KerData project-team has been officially created on July 1st 2012 as a Joint Project-Team with ENS Cachan/Brittany and INSA Rennes, for a 4-year term.

Alexandru Costan, a former Post-Doc fellow at the KerData project-team, has been hired on a permanent position at INSA. Alexandru got his PhD in Valentin Cristea's NCIT group at Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania), our partner in the DataCloud@work Inria Associate Team.

The KerData project-team organized the 7th Workshop of the Inria-Illinois Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing, June 13-15, 2012 http://jointlab.ncsa.illinois.edu/events/workshop7/ .

After successful experiments with up to 9000 cores on the Kraken Cray XT5 machine (NICS) in 2011, Damaris scaled up to 16000 cores on Oak Ridge's leadership supercomputer Titan (now first in the Top500), providing in-situ analysis to the CM1 tornado simulation.
