Optalysys offers a revolutionary solution to complex model simulations and Big Data analytics at a fraction of the cost, time and energy consumption.

At Optalysys we are building groundbreaking hardware products that will revolutionise Big Data processing and model generation technology. Our technology offers step-changing advances in how physical processes are modelled and resulting large data sets are analysed with direct relevance to science, engineering and “Big Data” applications. These are areas where it is becoming increasingly common for traditional high performance computing methods to fall short of delivering the processing power required. Examples include aerofoil design, weather forecasting, MRI data analysis and quantum computing (click here for more potential applications).

We anticipate our first product will be available at the end of 2017 and will perform next generation genomic sequence alignment and analysis.  It will be fast, powered from a PCIe interface and able to seamlessly integrate with existing computing setups.  This product is the commercialisation of the GENESYS project we are conducting with our partners the Earlham Institute.
