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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
