Exascale system modeling - overview
Some of the most disruptive business insights and scientific breakthroughs of our time, such as supply-chain optimization, machine-failure prediction or the study of galaxy evolution and dark energy, are only possible thanks to Big Data analytics and massively parallel software on very large computer systems.
As the largest computers are about to grow by another order of magnitude, we are approaching the exascale era. Building such systems is a daunting task for any organization. Project planning requires early estimates of the system size, performance and power consumption. Our models provide these estimates and support tailoring of the hardware to a particular software, thus increasing efficiency and reducing costs.
