Optalysys was formed to bring Big Data supercomputer processing to the world. We are developing optical high performance computing hardware that will revolutionise the market by operating at levels well in excess of what can be achieved with electronics at a fraction of the cost and energy consumption.

Optalysys technology uses light, rather than electricity, to perform processor intensive mathematical functions (such as Fourier Transforms) in parallel at incredibly high-speeds and resolutions. It has the potential to provide multi-exascale levels of processing, powered from a standard mains supply. The mission is to deliver a solution that requires several orders of magnitude less power than traditional High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures.

The first products are expected to launch in 2017. Although these will have impressive performance capabilities, our aims are to ramp up to game-changing specifications. Read about our much anticipated first product.

This hardware will have many high-value applications across a range of sectors including engineering and scientific model simulations and Big Data analysis. See our collaboration projects and some example applications.

Optalysys has evolved from a University of Cambridge spin-out known as Cambridge Correlators Limited (CCL). Optalysys was incorporated when the team refocused on large scale HPC applications. Significant design advances have since been made which will lead to this technology being small, easy to calibrate and much more rugged than previous designs. As part of the restructure, the patents developed by CCL have been acquired by Optalysys Ltd with full support of the CCL board of shareholders.
