Eurotech: €1.2M order for Aurora HPC from German Research Centre Jülich

 

Amaro (Italy) – April 5th, 2012 – Eurotech, a leading company in embedded and supercomputing technologies, announces that it has received a 1.2 million euro order from Forschungszentrum Jülich, one of the largest research centres in Europe, for supply of a HPC (High Performance Computing) system of the Aurora family. Delivery is scheduled to take place within this year.
The Aurora HPC will be used within the scope of the EU-funded project DEEP (Dynamical Exascale Entry Platform), an innovative European response to the challenge of creating supercomputers capable of performing ExaFlops, i.e. a billion billion calculations per second, that is a thousand times faster than today’s fastest supercomputers.
The DEEP consortium, led by Forschungszentrum Jülich, proposes to develop a novel, Exascale-enabling supercomputing architecture that takes the concept of compute acceleration to a new level: instead of adding accelerator cards to Cluster nodes, an accelerator Cluster, called Booster, will complement a conventional HPC system and increase its compute performance. While the Cluster is an off-the-shelf component, the Booster will be designed and built by the DEEP project partners using cutting edge technology. Together with a software stack focused on meeting Exascale requirements, comprising adapted programming models, libraries and performance tools, the DEEP architecture will enable unprecedented scalability. In the DEEP consortium Eurotech will be the responsible to assemble and design the cabinets, racks and blades of the system.

Note: the DEEP project will be funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-ICT-2011-7, Integrated Project No. 287530).

Eurotech: ordine di €1,2M per HPC Aurora dal Centro di Ricerca tedesco Jülich

 

Amaro (UD) – 5 aprile 2012 – Eurotech, azienda leader nelle tecnologie embedded e di supercalcolo, annuncia di aver ricevuto un ordine di 1,2 milioni di Euro da Forschungszentrum Jülich, uno dei più grandi centri di ricerca in Europa, per la fornitura di un sistema HPC (High Performance Computing) della famiglia Aurora. La consegna è prevista quest’anno. 
L’HPC Aurora sarà utilizzato nell’ambito del progetto finanziato dall’UE denominato DEEP (Dinamico Entry Exascale Platform), una innovativa risposta europea alla sfida di creare supercomputer in grado di raggiungere gli ExaFlops, vale a dire un miliardo di miliardi di calcoli al secondo, ovvero un migliaio di volte più veloci rispetto ai più veloci supercomputer di oggi. 
Il consorzio DEEP, guidato da Forschungszentrum Jülich, si propone di sviluppare un’innovativa architettura di supercalcolo di classe Exascale, che porti il concetto di accelerazione dell’elaborazione ad un nuovo livello: invece di aggiungere schede di accelerazione ai nodi di un Cluster, un Cluster acceleratore, chiamato Booster, integrerà un sistema HPC convenzionale e ne aumenterà la potenza di calcolo. Mentre il Cluster sarà un componente off-the-shelf, cioè disponibile sul mercato, il Booster sarà progettato e costruito dai partner del progetto DEEP con tecnologia all’avanguardia. Grazie anche ad un pacchetto software focalizzato sulla soddisfazione delle esigenze specifiche di una piattaforma Exascale, che comprende modelli di programmazione adeguati, librerie e strumenti di ottimizzazione delle performance, l’architettura DEEP consentirà una scalabilità senza precedenti. All’interno del consorzio DEEP, Eurotech sarà responsabile della progettazione e assemblaggio degli armadi, dei cestelli e delle schede del sistema.

Eurotech: € 4M order from Selex Elsag for AURORA HPC for cyber security applications

Eurotech: € 4M order from Selex Elsag for AURORA HPC for cyber security applications
Amaro (Italy), July 11th, 2011 – Eurotech, a leading company in embedded and supercomputing technologies, announces that it has received a € 4 million order from Selex Elsag for supply of a HPC (High-Performance Computing) system of the Aurora family. Delivery is scheduled to take place in some steps during the next 9 months.

Selex Elsag, strategic unit of the Finmeccanica group in the defence and security electronics segment, will employ Eurotech’s supercomputer in the emerging field of cyber security. For some years now use of HPCs outside the academic and scientific world has been growing and the ever-increasing digitalization of information also requires the security segment to process millions of data very fast, in just a few seconds. One of the most important requirements in the security segment – but also the most difficult to meet – is minimization of the impact of the time taken for checks on activities’ actual execution times, particularly in the case of financial transactions, or if it is necessary not to give any evidence that a certain activity is subject to massive cross-checks. Whence the emergence of the tangible need for supercomputers, able to perform the large number of checks required in an extremely short time.

In addition, modern methods for the identification of cyber crimes increasingly involve techniques featuring cross-analysis of data coming from several different sources – and these techniques further increase the computing capacity required.

“We are very pleased that Selex Elsag has chosen our supercomputer for a fast-expanding application like cyber security”, commented Roberto Siagri, Eurotech’s Chairman and CEO. “Right from the start, Aurora architecture has been conceived to be used effectively not only for scientific research but also in the industrial and services domains – and this order confirms the rightness of our vision”.
