Maturity level methodology

One of the important recommendations of the first phase of the European Exascale Software Initiative (EESI1) was to establish a European Exascale Software Centre to coordinate research, development, testing, and validation of EU HPC Exascale software ecosystem components and modules.
Following EESI1 recommendations to investigate the feasibility and prepare for the operation of such a centre, EESI2 has launched three steps:

  • Develop and document a methodology for estimating the level of maturity of Exascale software components
  • Identify 3 software stack components from existing and near future European Exascale projects and apply the defined methodology
  • Examine existing “equivalent” centres and propose a structure adapted to Exascale software
