1 Van SARA naar Vancis ICT voor de Kenniseconomie Dr. Anwar Osseyran SARA/Vancis Managing Director

2 Science Park Amsterdam a world of science in a city of inspiration Faculty of Science of the Universiteit van Amsterdam National Institute for Nuclear Physics and High Energy Physics (NIKHEF) Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMOLF) National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) SARA Computing and Networking Services + 80 innovative companies

3 SARA s Mission: Support Innovation SARA Foundation is an independent (hybrid) organization with ~140 fte s in 2 locations (Amsterdam and Almere) The mission of SARA is 2-fold: 1. Supporting research in the Netherlands by providing high-end Providing not-for-profit ICT services to geographically dispersed education and research communities [SARA for Science & Innovation] 2. Offering commercial high-end commodity ICT services based on the expertise built in the high-end activities [Vancis for advanced Ict Services] Amsterdam Almere

9 China in top 10 Elite (SC08)

10 Germany & Saudi Arabia (ISC09)

11 China Joins the top 5 Elite (SC09)

12

13 And the Race goes on 10 Peta in 2010

14 and 1 Exaflops in 2019?

15 Why the race to Petascale Computing? Computer modeling and simulation is recognized as third pillar of science and technology Predictive simulation capability will dominate many areas of scientific discovery and have huge economic impact Out-compute to Out-compete Council on Competitiveness

16 Supernodes: Innovation Hot Spots Supernodes will be the centers of large scale research in Europe With large concentrations of scientific and industrial user communities And European Hard- and Software industries

17 Supercomputers To Attract Researchers

18 Where to study?
