Term Definition

To evaluate the DEEP-ER concept and to prove its programmability, 7 real-world HPC applications are ported to the DEEP-ER system. They serve to test the system, to compare its performance with respect to standard architectures, but obviously also to propose improvements to the system's hardware and software. They form an integral part in the DEEP and DEEP-ER Co-Design efforts.
