Intel builds ExaCluster laboratory in Julich
In addition to the research center and the chip manufacturer Cluster ParTec specialist in building and research is involved. The laboratory is to cooperate with other Intel-Labs - that is, in Paris, which also conducts research on Exascale computing dell inspiron e1705 battery.
The Research Centre Julich, cluster specialist ParTec and Intel have signed an agreement to build a ExaCluster laboratory in Julich. It is a public-private partnership for research on computer systems with thousands of today's fastest supercomputer performance and be in the research of Intel Labs High Performance Computing (HPC) involved, particularly in the context of the Exascale Computing Research Center in Paris.
The lab is the twentieth ExaCluster research lab of Intel Labs Europe. In the beginning there is a dozen researchers are working, their number should grow over time to approximately threefold. In ExaCluster lab will be written under other free Exascale runtime system software, software tools, lenovo thinkpad x60 battery and simulation software.
Floating point operations are flops per second, floating point calculations per second - a measure of the performance of supercomputers. The term Exaflops describes the processing of a trillion - a one with eighteen zeros - instructions per second. Systems that work with such a speed, called Exascale systems.
One challenge for Exascale systems example, it is to understand the complexity of health and biochemical phenomena better to depict organs and detail the behavior of tumors to predict. The more one can take into account dependencies supercomputer, the more meaningful are the simulation results for physicians and researchers.
The decision to Julich has given according to Intel's Toshiba PA3384U-1BRS experience in the supercomputer segment. Its computer network "JUGENE" has just fallen from fourth place on the list of world's five most powerful systems.
