Computer Industry

The computer industry is driven by the mass market. Widely deployable standard components offer an unequalled cost-performance ratio. Tailor-made solutions targeting small markets are exposed to increasing pressure and are disappearing. Since Clayton M. Christensen's book 'The Innovator's Dilemma', this process has been termed 'disruptive innovation'. To achieve such technological leaps, leading American computer manufacturers have placed their trust in SCS. The expertise of SCS in this context lies in the integration of a very large number of cheap components into an extraordinarily powerful whole. The required technologies include:

  • High speed networks (proprietary, Gigabit Ethernet, 10Gigabit Ethernet, camLink, GigE Vision)
  • Efficient SW libraries for communication
  • Software drivers
  • Parallel file systems
  • Massive parallel processing with CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs

For the operation of scaling parallel systems with thousands of components, readily accessible and easily maintained individual modules are just as necessary as high failure tolerance through the redundant system design and reliable failover mechanisms.
