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: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...

Im Focus: A molecular switch may serve as new target point for cancer and diabetes therapies

If certain signaling cascades are misregulated, diseases like cancer, obesity and diabetes may occur. A mechanism recently discovered by scientists at the Leibniz- Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin and at the University of Geneva has a crucial influence on such signaling cascades and may be an important key for the future development of therapies against these diseases. The results of the study have just been published in the prestigious scientific journal 'Molecular Cell'.

Cell growth and cell differentiation as well as the release and efficacy of hormones such as insulin depend on the presence of lipids. Lipids are small...
