ACE Lab

While striving to be a world-class service provider and an outstanding research facilitator, the CHPC recognises the importance of promoting its own research and innovations.

The ACE (Advanced Computer Engineering) Lab's primary focus lies in the pursuit of research avenues within HPC. This includes a mandate to port important codes to novel architectures, including FPGA and many-core solutions, to build a relevant skills and knowledge base of current technologies, to create our own functional hardware, software tools and HPC methodologies and to provide a service for transitioning such technology to local users.

The ACElab is currently involved in a number of projects pursuing these goals on a range of hardware architectures and software ideologies in collaboration with local and international institutions.

 

Current ACElab Projects:

  • The evaluation and development of products and technologies for HPC through the ACE Lab's test-bed cluster.
  • An investigation into the optimal configuration for a petascale cluster at the CHPC.
  • Research and development into Cloud computing at the CHPC.
  • An evaluation of the Convey Hybrid-Core system for use in bioinformatics.
  • Providing an off-line environment for testing configuration changes before they are made to the production clusters.
  • Providing easy access to compute facilities used for training and courses run at the CHPC.
  • Organising the CHPC Student Cluster Competition.
