The need for highest compute performance at the lowest possible energy consumption leads to a computer architecture that combine a large variety of general-purpose and acceleration elements. This is the core idea of the Modular Supercomputing Architecture (MSA). In this architecture, heterogeneous resources are orchestrated so that applications can run each of their parts on the most appropriate computing elements.

Cluster-Booster Concept

Cluster-Booster concepts have been known for years. However, they used static approaches, i.e., a static assignment of CPUs and GPUs. ParTec’s modular approach, on the other hand, allows dynamic assignments and thus high resource utilization. This results in a reduced need for nodes for predefined algorithms or increased performance with  the same number
of nodes.

HPC meets Quantum Computing Quantum computing is a paradigm shift that enables the extension of binary computing to a multitude of states whether 0 or 1, represented by so-called “Q-Bits”. The integration of quantum modules into the Modular Supercomputing Architecture promises to be the next step in the evolution of computing.
