Fujitsu’s SynfiniWay™ to be Airbus grid middleware for aerodynamics analysis

09.08.2006
Fujitsu Systems Europe has announced a significant order for its SynfiniWay grid middleware for aerodynamics analysis from Airbus, the leading international commercial aircraft manufacturer. It will be used for the production HPC grid environment at the primary Airbus compute centres in France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.

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.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
