Federal agencies and private sector customers call on Noblis when they need insight, inspiration, and innovation. The breadth of our expertise in science and technology has long-enabled us to discover opportunities and leverage similarities, differences, and interdependencies across domains on behalf of our clients. The Noblis Center for Applied High Performance Computing (CAHPC) enables customers to turn to us when they need lasting solutions to problems that can only be solved with innovative thinking and massive supercomputing power.
The CAHPC is dedicated to using high performance computing (HPC) to accelerate the development and commercialization of applications requiring graph analytics. The CAHPC is located in Danville, Virginia and is home to one of our nation’s most powerful computers, a next-generation Cray XMT2 supercomputer.
The CAHPC's Cray XMT2 supercomputing system is a scalable, massively multithreaded platform with a shared memory architecture that is optimized for large-scale data analysis and data mining. The system is designed to handle parallel applications that are dynamically changing, require random access to shared memory, and typically do not run well on conventional systems. The XMT2 offers a level of computing power that is rarely found outside of federal laboratories and academic settings. It excels at tasks such as pattern matching, scenario development, behavioral prediction, anomaly identification, and graph analysis.
The mission of the CAHPC is to move HPC out of the lab and into the field to solve real problems in novel ways. And in order to help accelerate the development of HPC applications, the Center will make this technology accessible to researchers and small businesses. The goals of the Center are to:
Matt is an expert in the areas of business development, project management, and SaaS operations management.
Will is an expert in software architecture, agile development, distributed systems, and platform development.
