Fraunhofer SCAI presents new software licensing solutions for Grids and Clouds

17.06.2009
Flexible software licensing solutions for Grids, Clouds and SOA may reduce costs for companies with the need for complex computational simulations.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI presents a new product developed in the project SmartLM, funded by the European Commission. Further highlights of SCAI at the International Supercomputing Conference from 23rd until 26th June, 2009 in Hamburg are professional services in the field of High Performance Computing.

"elasticLM" is a new licensing framework of web services that facilitates treating and implementing software licenses as Grid services. This innovative technology provides users and customers with a maximum of flexibility while offering new business opportunities for software vendors and application service providers. "elasticLM" is based on open standards to ease the integration into existing environments and to leverage interoperability.

Researchers at Fraunhofer SCAI developed "elasticLM" in the context of the research project SmartLM, funded by the European Commission. In the framework of SmartLM, CAE software vendors like ANSYS, INTES and LMS International are pilot users.

Customers profit from SCAI's high-capacity computer infrastructure

High Performance Computing for scientific and technical applications is one of Fraunhofer SCAI's key competences. SCAI develops individual algorithms, ports software on different systems and guarantees best implementation as well as a high performance of applications. Target architectures include x86 multi-core systems, GPGPUs and clusters of these. SCAI customers benefit from the deep expertise in advanced software development tools such as CUDA, MPI, OpenMP, OpenCL and Intel Ct.

Porting high-performance open-source software to Windows

Fraunhofer SCAI offers services in porting and integration of open source software applications for Linux on Windows HPC. In this regard, the institute's IT specialists deploy and develop numerical and engineering codes on Windows HPC, and accomplish benchmarking of codes on Windows HPC clusters, for example. Currently, SCAI organises and mentors a student project: A team of students establishes a web portal for open source software, developed and ported by Fraunhofer SCAI running on Microsoft Windows Operation Systems.

Fraunhofer SCAI's HPC and Grid specialists are going to present selected software products and professional services in Hamburg. The International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) is Europe's leading conference and exhibition on High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage. Fraunhofer SCAI and its distribution partner scapos AG are looking forward to welcoming you at the Congress Center in Hamburg, Germany, from 23rd until 26th June, 2009 at booth 700.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
