DAS-6 VENDOR DAY
We are organizing a DAS-6 vendor day on December 3, 2018, at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam,
to aid in a market consultation for the DAS-6 project.
The DAS-6 project has participation from the following organizations:
Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
University of Amsterdam
Delft University of Technology
Netherlands e-Science Center
For the market consultation, the DAS-6 steering committee would like to invite
companies to do a presentation of about 30 minutes with 15 minutes of questions and answers.
Companies are given the opportunity to discuss technical trends that could be relevant
for a new DAS-6 system that is to become operational second half of 2019.
For more information about DAS-6 and its predecessor DAS-5 see:
the DAS-6 NWO proposal and
the DAS-5 website.
Please note that the DAS-6 cluster descriptions in the DAS-6 NWO proposal were made almost
a year ago, and will be updated for the DAS-6 tender procedure.
Possible topics for the vendor presentations include upcoming developments regarding:
The audience will consist of representatives from the DAS-6 consortium with a technical
background, so the focus of the presentations should also be on technical aspects.

HPC accelerators (especially commodity GPUs);
100G interconnects (EDR InfiniBand, OmniPath, 100 Gb Ethernet),
