Today transtec in the UK announced that it will build a 1 Petaflop supercomputer for the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT). With more than 1,100 compute nodes, the solution is worth 6.9 million Euro and is the largest deal in the company’s history.
“At ISC 2015, Numascale announced record-breaking results from a shared memory system running the McCalpin STREAM Benchmark, a synthetic benchmark program that measures sustainable memory bandwidth and the corresponding computation rate for simple vector kernels. Numascale’s cache coherent shared memory system, which was targeted for big data analytics, reached 10.06 TBytes/second for the Scale function.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Oliver Tennert from Transtec describes how the company’s Remote Visualization solutions are empowering customers with flexibility for their computing workloads. “We have a lot of customers from the scientific as well as financial or telecommunications areas, where analyzing huge amounts of data in the shortest period of time possible is a critical factor of success.”
In this video from ISC’14, Einar Rustad from Numascale describes the company’s innovative solution for combining multiple servers into an aggregated compute resource with extremely large memory capacity. As an HPC solution provider, Transtec delivers innovative technologies like this to customers seeking supported solutions.
