The technology works by breaking down the rendering calculation so that each part can be ran simultaneously across a number of machines, thus the final result can be obtained in a shorter period of time.
This is what is called Grid computing. What is more, because the ‘Grid’ of powerful computers is maintained by a third-party company at a third-party site, the architect firm can access the Grid from any location in the world, and because the service charges on a pay-as-you-go, or SaaS, model, the firm never has to worry about justifying the cost of hardware, depreciation or maintenance.
The ICT 2008 event (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/index_en.htm) is the largest research event in Europe. It is a forum for discussion and influence of European Union priorities in ICT (Information Communication Technologies) research, where over €2 billion of funding will be available in 2009-2010. The event will feature the major current technological trends which impact upon strategic research planning and is aimed at researchers, innovators, engineers, policy and business decision-makers in the field of digital technologies.
CETIC’s Chief Engineer on this project, Stéphane Mouton, will be on hand at the event to give a live demonstration of the service. The research was carried in the scope of the BEinGRID research project, which in turn is subsidized by the European Commission. Stéphane will be accompanied by researchers from the computational fluid dynamics and financial services industries, who have likewise developed innovative solutions to problems frequently found by SMEs.
So why not come along and meet CETIC at the event? They will be at the BEinGRID stand, in the “ICT Gets Smart” exhibition area, stand number G 15. (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/index_en.htm).

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
