• Mission: 

    PHIDIAS addresses the development and concrete realisation of a set of High-Performance Computing (HPC) based interdisciplinary services and tools to exploit large satellite datasets of public European interest provided by: Satellite observation of Earth; FAIR access to processed datasets; Value-added services through large data storage capability and high-bandwidth network across Europe. Phidias HPC is aimed at developing a consolidated and shared HPC and Data service by building on pre-existing and emerging infrastructure in order to create a federation of "user to infrastructure" services.

  • Collaboration with Blue-Cloud: 
    • Exploring how the HPC services developed by PHIDIAS can enhance and support the Blue-Cloud demonstrators capacity.
    • Investigating the role of HPC resources in the future Blue-Cloud framework and in the context of our Roadmap.
    • Joint dissemination activities focused on improving the usage of cloud & HPC services for marine data management.
  • Expected Impact: 

    Better understanding how to improve the long-term stewardship of marine in-situ data and raise awareness of the benefits of standardised HPC services for marine studies and allow marine data processing workflows for on-demand processing.
