A common workshop with AIOTI / BDVA / ECSO (Cybersecurity)
In this closed work session, technical experts from ETP4HPC, BDVA, ECSO and AIOTI will work out a concept for defining R&I research priorities in support of "Transcontinuum Digital Infrastructures". Recent hardware and software advances have motivated the development of a concept to account for the convergence of data and compute capabilities. This concept is not in a straight line from the past efforts and a paradigm change is needed: we will have to design systems encompassing hundreds of billions of cores distributed over scientific instruments, IoT, supercomputers and Cloud systems through LAN, WLAN and 5G networks. Pushed by massive deployments of compute and storage capabilities at the Edge, we require new system designs to accommodate the ecosystem change to be expected in the coming decades (environmental and technological) and horizontally integrate the different actors. The new demands and challenges that combine data and compute, distributed across the continuum, and the maintenance and resource efficiencies, are pushing for drastically increased software and hardware sustainability. Furthermore, the need to provide high-level cybersecurity is profoundly changing the game.
