The InfiniCortex project aims to create a global InfiniBand fabric to connect supercomputers across continents for these tasks and already has nodes in Singapore, Australia, Japan, USA and Poland. The network is expected to include several new partners in Europe and circumnavigate the globe by the end of 2015.

Dr Marek T. Michalewicz, the Chief Executive Officer of A*STAR Computational Resource Centre in Singapore will be overseeing a public presentation on the topic, called “Understanding Urban Development through HPC” on July 13 at the International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, but we thought it would be useful to glean more information about the project in advance.
