ATMOSPHERE was presented at the "From High Performance Computing to Exascale: the research challenges and new applications", on 11th October 2018, organized by AEIT with the DEIB department of Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy). The event aimed at presenting an overview of the main challenges and current solutions to build the next-generation Exascale computing systems, combining the aspects of scientific research with industrial aspects and illustrating some new applications that will exploit that computing capacity.

ATMOSPHERE project was invited to do a presentation about project's activities, with a special focus on Software-Defined WAN

Giacomo Verticale, from Politecnico di Milano, presented how the SD-WAN paradigm provides the tools for virtualization and network automation, maximizing cloud-to-cloud traffic and eliminating performance bottlenecks. The network functions developed in the ATMOSPHERE allow to manage the networks towards the cloud systems and between cloud systems with the reliability required for each type of service.
