Fujitsu sets up Spanish HPC hub

Fujitsu has chosen Spain as its fifth hub for High Performance Computing (HPC) in Europe.

It said Spain is predicted to have about 5% of the market for supercomputing in EMEA.

It said much activity in the market in EMEA is triggered by a major global race amongst companies to have the most powerful supercomputers and most energy efficient IT environment.

Fujitsu’s program for supercomputing is based on what it calls the Human Centric Intelligent Society, which is hoping to encourage new initiatives in e-agriculture, e-healthcare, e-personal assistance and e-learning, among other areas.

In these efforts HPC is crucial for data mining, visualizing data and providing knowledge management.

Fujitsu is using a number of next-generation data center technologies as part of this, including power and cooling devices, and is also focussing on the Cloud and high-speed networking.

Fujitsu will be setting up HPC sales and support services in Spain as part of its Global Innovation Network.

It will join the Global HPC competence Center in Germany, the Fujitsu System Europe in France, where much software development takes place, and other laboratories in the UK and Italy.

Fujitsu’s work will build on innovations already carried out with the world’s fastest supercomputer, the K Computer installed at the Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Sciences HPC facility.

It has also developed PRIME HPC FX10, a massive scale machine that can provide speeds of up to 23 petaflops with high energy efficiency with consumption of just 1.4MW.

  • Is Hyperconvergence a Viable Alternative to the Public Cloud?

    Thu, 31 Mar 2016 15:00:00

    Enterprise IT leaders are right to be skeptical of such bold claims. After all, is it really possible to deliver an on-premises infrastructure that delivers the same agility, elasticity, and cost-effectiveness of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services? If you’re following the traditional IT model, with its many siloes and best-of-breed point solutions, the answer is, most likely, no. To truly deliver a viable alternative to public cloud, you need to look beyond traditional IT. Join Evaluator Group and SimpliVity to learn more about how hyperconverged infrastructure can deliver the efficiency, elasticity, and agility of public cloud."
