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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
