Parallel Scalable Computers for High Performance Applications

Keywords: High Performance Computing and Networking
Technical - CORBA, OS Kernel, Parallel Processing, PCI, Real-time, SCI
Uses - Control, Databases, Multimedia, Simulation
Industrial Applications - Electromagnetic Measurement, Pharmaceutical Database Applications

The project intends to develop a high-performance parallel processing system and associated tools allowing to develop enterprise systems as applications based on standard components. The consortium will port four applications in the industrial, scientific and pharmaceutical domains. Emerging standards both in software and hardware will be exploited to investigate the design and implementation of fully featured CORBA-compliant software based on SCI interconnection technology. The work will investigate the scalability of systems using a combination of high performance CPU and SCI, providing high data transfer rate, low latency and cache coherence. The goal is to define a software approach that produces standard based portable and scalable software applicable to the above hardware configurations. It is intended to investigate and exploit hardware platforms scalable from a few to several hundred processors. It is expected to demonstrate the system in the following applications: concurrent engineering, simulation, control systems, high-performance data warehouses and molecular databases.
