Tehran, Nov 24, IRNA - Chancellor of computer at the faculty of Science and Technology University Mohsen Sharifi who got his Ph.D on a parallel high performance machine has invented a new system which increases the speed of personal computers (PC) to those of super computers, it was announced on Saturday.
The first-ever system provides the most possible primitive ways of programmability to researchers and users who are interested in getting high performance from their commodity (COT) hardware, by shifting the complexity to the system level and kernel levels of the system software responsible for the management of the HPC machine.
The new system which has been dubbed as C-Sharifi is the first of its kind in the world at the moment that uses the whole privileges of the operating system kernel to advertently and directly manipulate and mange all machine and application program resources to attain the highest possible rate of performance for the specific-tailored running application program, out of the power of ordinary off-the-shelf computers and other hardware that are ordinarily networked.
As an example, the performance gain running a meteorological application under C-Sharifi has been three-fold with respect to when the same application is run under a high-cost American solution for the same purpose.
C-Sharifi can be favorably deployed in a variety of domains in need of cost-effective high performance and speed like in modeling, analyzing, simulating, predicting, forecasting and engineering all kinds of events and artifacts like earthquake, pollution, medicine, astronomy, etc.
C-Sharifi is a real winner from high-cost and complex dedicated super-computers of the age, when they are compared based on Cost/Performance ration.
C-Sharifi gives a much better ratio because it is native, primitive, kernel-based, and considerably much more adaptable to every customized application concerned.
Two other Iranian researchers named as Ehsan Mousavi Khanghah and Seyede Leili Mirtaheri were engaged in the two-year studies to run the project.
Mohsen Sharifi received his PhD from Manchester University on a Parallel High Performance Machine.
