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 Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
