SynfiniWay proved to offer the most complete and integrated grid computing solution for aerodynamics analyses at aerospace group Airbus, combining service-oriented applications with open workflow capabilities for efficient support of complex dynamic processes. The aircraft manufacturer is going to deploy this system as the standard HPC grid middleware across the four European countries mentioned.
Naoya Tamura, CEO Fujitsu Systems Europe, explains: “The clean and decentralised architecture of SynfiniWay will allow progressive expansion of the compute grid, and we look forward to working closely with Airbus IT and engineering teams in the next phase of production deployment.”
The SynfiniWay grid framework will be used as the common interface for heterogeneous HPC machines and data transfer. Virtualisation of these systems now gives Airbus greater flexibility in resource deployment, allowing a reduction in project times through meta-scheduling and task interleaving. Dataflow is implicitly handled by the SynfiniWay framework, being directly synchronised with the process workflow to ensure a continuous movement of data from the file server through compute nodes to the workstation.
Fujitsu Systems Europe has also been contracted to develop the services around the aerodynamic applications and to integrate SynfiniWay within the existing user desktop tools for transparent grid access.

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.
So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...
Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
