HPC

High Performance Computing

In several areas of scientific research — meteorology, seismology, and particle physics —, the need for high-performance processing systems has been felt for several decades. The production of Supercomputers, with specific and expensive architectural solutions, was the first natural response to this type of computational needs and put the foundations of High Performance Computing (HPC). Later, technological progress and the spread of personal computers and computer networks led to a strong change in addressing the demand for high processing speed. From the use of centralized architectures built with specialized and very expensive components (Supercomputer) we have moved to the use of low-cost standard components organized in massively parallel and distributed architectures (Cluster, Grid Computing and Cloud Computing).

In any event, the management of HPC systems, given the complexity and the degree of innovation of the same, has always required personnel of the highest level of specialization and the close collaboration between the application developers and the experts of the involved hardware architecture. From the problem of the optimal use of very expensive computational resources, we have moved on to address the not simple problem of the coordinated sharing of heterogeneous and distributed computing resources, and the organization of these resources so that they appear as “Virtual Supercomputers” to scientific and technology applications.

Innovery & Nice

A strategic partnership for cutting-edge technologies

Starting from scientific applications, the demand for high processing speed has been spread to increasingly different fields: industrial design, engineering, financial applications. Simulation and Big Data Analytics, in fact, require enormous Compute Intensive and Data Intensive processing capabilities. In this context, Innovery completes its already solid presence in the sectors of Finance, Insurance, Utility, Energy, Industrial, Telco, Government, University, providing the necessary computational substrate to the mission critical applications typical of these sectors. Establishing a strategic partnership with Nice, a leading company in comprehensive Grid and Cloud Computing solutions, allows us to offer our customers the best experience and the most effective technological solutions.

The proposed solutions address critical aspects of High Performance Computing: the possibility of accessing computing resources with standard tools and protocols, without worrying about the complexity and heterogeneity of the interfaces and native architectures involved.

EnginFrame and Desktop Cloud Visualization

Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), in the automotive and aerospace fields; oil exploration; study and processing of financial products; chemical and biotechnological research; these are just some significant examples of applications — used by leading companies in their respective areas — that successfully utilize EnginFrame’s modular architecture for access to HPC resources: Grid, Cluster and Cloud Computing, both with Batch processing and Interactive applications. With easily customizable predefined templates, the use of the most common Web browsers as interfaces — and with the adoption of standard protocols — EnginFrame transforms the traditional HPC resources, public or private, into a “Self-Service” HPC Cloud that allows to be immediately productive.

Similarly, it is possible to obtain a 3D Cloud: Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) allows remote access to high-end graphics processing resources, through standard networks and standard devices. Data sent from a common Personal Computer is processed by one or more servers equipped with high-performance GPUs for OpenGL rendering; the Personal Computer receives the images processed remotely simply in the form of their pixels, without suffering any additional workload.
