In the tera-scale
range, we graduate to thousands of processors.
However, the company's Tera-scale
research is instrumental in investigating new innovations in individual or specialized processor or core functions, the types of chip-to-chip and chip-to-computer interconnects required to best move data and, most importantly, how software will need to be designed to best leverage multiple processor cores.
More businesses will now be able to benefit from a high performance, tera-scale
warehousing solution without incurring the commonly associated high costs.
Netezza has created the world's first purpose-built, tera-scale
data appliance that enables real-time Business Intelligence (BI).
Common themes among the subgroups were the need for additional and improved comparisons between experiments, simulations and theory; the need for advances in diagnostics and visualizations; utilization of tera-scale
computers and modern computational techniques; and connections to non-fusion applications, Kritz said.
The contract is the third IBM award in a programme designed to build systems capable of tera-scale
- trillion calculations-per-second - computing.
