The aim of the project is to create simplified access to large-scale data processing for small and medium-sized enterprises, using supercomputing and involving programming experts, technologists and supercomputing resource managers.
According to a report prepared by the Intelligent Computing Partnership (PRACE), the EU loses around 2-3% of GDP annually due to a lack of innovation in large-scale data processing. The Baltic Sea Region is facing an even worse situation and this project aims to significantly increase the capacity of smaller players in the Baltic Sea Region to develop innovative data processing products and services.
The environment created by the BalticLSC project will have an impact on the Baltic Sea region, with significant support from two major groups. First, significantly facilitating the emergence of new providers of large-scale data processing (LSC) services. Even small start-up companies will be able to use the BalticLSC specifications to create their own local LSC centers. Second, even very small innovation and design centers will have the ability to easily develop their own applications for data processing in the BalticLSC environment. By doing so, they will significantly reduce the time to market for innovative engineering products by providing easy access to LSC resources that were previously inaccessible or too complex to use.
