CHIPP: INAF pilot project for HTC, HPC and HPDA

CHIPP ("Computing HTC in INAF – Pilot Project”) is an Italian project funded by the Italian Institute for Astrophysics (INAF).
The main purpose of the CHIPP project is to coordinate the use of, and access to, already existing high throughput computing and high-performance computing and data processing resources (for small/medium size programs) for the INAF community. Today, Tier-2/Tier-3 systems (1,200 CPU/core) are provided at the INAF institutes at Trieste and Catania, but in the future, the project will evolve including also other computing infrastructures.
During the last two years more than 30 programs have been approved for a total request of 30 Million CPU-h.
Most of the programs are HPC, data reduction and analysis, machine learning.
In this poster, we describe in details the CHIPP infrastructures and the results of the first two years of activity.
