Launched in 1986 by the government of China, the "863 Program" aims to enhance China's international competitiveness and improve China's overall R&D capability in high technology. The "863 Program" has selected Platform as the major Grid technology provider in its research project examining the benefits of Grid computing technology for China's aerospace industry. Together with China Aviation Industry Corp. II (AVIC II), Tsinghua University and Bei Hang University, Platform and its LSF family of products will help manage and optimize the project's enterprise IT environment, delivering faster time to results.
"863 Grid Application Program" lead Leng Jun Jie said, "Platform's technology enables us to implement a manufacturing Grid across China, and allows us to realize the key benefits of Grid technology in the manufacturing industry. Platform is a major player in this project and will be key in making this project a success."
"863 Grid Application Program" manager Yang Guang Wen said, "We are adopting advanced technology such as Platform's Grid computing solutions in a production environment to reduce our project cycle and ultimately improve the quality of our aircraft products. We expect to extend our partnership with Platform in future."
Ranked the 17th most powerful computing system in the world, SSC is dedicated to accelerating Shanghai's economic development and technology innovation. SSC is using Platform's Grid computing solutions -- Platform LSF, Platform LSF License Scheduler and Platform LSF Analytics -- to build an open service support system, and to provide industry-driven high performance computing cluster services such as system monitoring and management, cluster management and license management for SSC's customers in industries including weather forecasting, geological exploration, genomic research and aerospace.
Zhao said, "Platform's Grid computing technology provides an ASP infrastructure to SSC, enabling them to become a service provider in addition to an IT resource provider. Our Grid solutions allow their customers to better use and easily access many industrial applications."
