I-SCALARE, the lab of supercomputer technologies for biomedicine, pharmacology and small-scale structures, set up in 2010 by Intel corporation in the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, has presented science research results, achieved with modernized energy efficient supercomputer with peak capacity of 41.57 TFLOPS, Russian Electronic NANOJOURNAL reports.
Specifically, a research group from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences uses I-SCALARE’s modernized computer cluster in its research of constructing a new class of antimicrobic compounds based on natural lantibiotics.
The modeling group has developed training methodology to study new-generation supercomputer applications before they are physically available. Performed experiments allow to fully describe how applications will work in new computer complexes with capacity of up to 665 TFLOPS.
Computer system modeling technologies, based on WindRiverSimics software, will provide architects and users of supercomputer systems with tools to measure the system’s full capacity, its limitations, optimization effects. The analysis enables researchers to make decisions on appropriateness of selected device configuration for practical scientific tasks.
