Sugon launches exascale computing project

Sugon, a leader in China's high-performance computing sector, has launched its E generation high-performance computer prototype project, and will soon demonstrate the applications of the project in Shanghai and Shenzhen, Xinhua reported on Sept. 18.

E generation supercomputing refers to supercomputers that are capable of performing a billion billion calculations per second. Such computers can play an essential role in solving crucial problems like those related to energy and climate change.

In the national 13th Five-Year Plan for computing research, Sugon, together with National University of Defense and Technology and Jiangnan Computing Technology Research Institution, was approved to execute an E generation prototype research project, positioning the three parties to lead the Chinese market in E generation calculation.

"The prototype system is able to support applications in the field of high-performance computing, big data and cloud computing, as well as accelerate the industrialization of technological achievements, which plays a major role in the development of China's high-performance computing industry," said Sha Chaoqun, vice president of Sugon.

Sugon has promised specific solutions to the potential challenges involved in E generation computing, specifically with regards to calculations, storage, networks, software, system cooling and reliability.

According to Sugon, the E generation computing prototype system will provide commercial services including high-performance computing, cloud computing and big data solutions once it is completed.
