AI Pilot Computing Infrastructure to support Digital Twin Earth

CloudFerro has launched the first phase of “ESA HPC / AI Pilot Computing Infrastructure" - a pilot supporting ESA's advanced projects (Digital Twin Earth & Universe) in the area of AI/ML.

The delivered computing infrastructure is equipped with the latest solutions based on NVIDIA GPU A6000 technology and a superfast dedicated high speed connection to the CREODIAS EODATA repository (>30PB online available data from the Copernicus Programme), where users will be able to use the data collected there.

ESA Digital Twin Earth & Universe (DTE&U) projects will provide a replica of the natural environment encompassing the Earth, its Space Environment, the Solar System and Deep Space. Utilising large-scale simulations and modelling DTE&U will enable a more comprehensive understanding of the past, present & future of the Earth, the Solar System & the Universe. It will also provide a better understanding of the complex interactions across different scientific domains. The objective of ESA HPC project is to demonstrate capability to establish and operate HPC-infrastructure for DTE&U-like applications. The delivered solution:

  • will be fully built on open-source software (OpenStack and CEPH),
  • will be equipped with GPU resources (required for the DTE&U projects such as DTE Hydrology, Antarctic Ice Sheet & Sea Level Rise Dynamic Response to Ocean Forcing),
  • will include cloud computing that completely supports multi-tenancy, which allows full separation of users and their data.
  • will provide access to the CREODIAS EO Data repository
