As part of the pilot program, IBM is providing the server infrastructure along with deep HPC competence across key functions and Gridcore, a joint partner of Numascale and IBM, will build the new advanced computing resource.
Universitetet i Oslo, Numascale og IBM sammen om norsk teknologi for avansert forskning
Universitetet i Oslo (UiO), det norske teknologiselskapet Numascale AS og det internasjonale storkonsernet IBM har signert avtale om et pilotprosjekt hvor norskutviklet teknologi for avanserte beregninger skal utprøves i stor skala. Med prosjektmidler fra Norges Forskningsråd, UiO og PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe), skal partnerne bygge opp en regneressurs basert på teknologien fra Numascale. Regneanlegget vil være det største av sitt slag og åpne for nye måter å benytte avanserte regneressurser i forskning.
Teknologien fra Numascale AS gjør det mulig å bygge opp store datasystemer med mange prosessorer som deler hele systemets minne (RAM), ved hjelp av såkalt ”shared memory”. Med NumaConnect-teknologien kan man kople sammen flere mindre servere til en stor systemenhet på en mer effektiv måte. Dette kan bidra til store kostnadsbesparelser.
