17 Nov 2014 Singapore - King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), a technology academy in Thailand, focusing on teaching and researching in engineering and technology as well as serving the local Thai industry, has acquired a large in-memory NumaQ system from Numascale - for large memory-based engineering computations and Big Data analytics.
"Our current combustion engineering computations are very complex", stated Asst. Prof. Wishsanuruk Wechsatol, Laboratory for Innovative Researches on Multiscale Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena in Modern Multidisciplinary Engineering Design (MMED), Department of Mechanical Engineering, KMUTT. "Having large amounts of data in memory allows us to speed up our computations by many-folds and enable us to solve difficult CFD and other multi-physics problems today."
We see the installation of our NumaQ system at KMUTT as an important milestone for utilizing standards-based x86 systems to build a scale-out to scale-up architecture for extreme scalability, meeting the demanding requirements in Big Data and complex computations where large data-sets must be stored in memory", stated Morten Toverud , CEO of Numascale. "We are very excited that KMUTT have selected NumaQ as their Big Data computation and analytics platform and we look forward to a close collaboration with them."
