Optalysys technology will provide 'Big Data' analysis capabilities, dealing with large scale tasks that cannot currently be managed with existing electrical processing.

Square Kilometre Array

radio telescope

Scenario:

The Square Kilometre Array is a global science project to build the world’s largest radio telescope. By 2024 it will be collecting and processing data equivalent to 100 times today’s global internet traffic.

How Optalysys technology can help:

Optalysys technology has the potential to process data at orders of magnitude faster than today’s (and even future) electrical supercomputers. For a project with this amount of data, this will be fundamental to its success. In addition, Optalsys technology will significantly reduce processing costs as the energy consumption is a fraction of electrical supercomputer requirements.

Alan Turing Project

Scenario:

The Alan Turing project was announced by the UK government in March 2014 to look at new ways of collecting, organising and analysing ‘Big Data’. It supports the UK government’s aim for the UK to be a world leader in the analysis and application of ‘Big Data’. The project is funded by £42 million over 5 years and parties can bid for the funding to setup the institute.

How Optalysys technology can help:

Similarly to the Square Kilometre Array example, Optalysys technology has the potential to process data at orders of magnitude faster than today’s and future electrical supercomputer capabilities. Optalysys technology will significantly reduce processing costs as the energy consumption is a fraction of electrical supercomputer requirements.
