EXCELLENCE IN NUMERICAL & CYBERNETIC PERFORMANCE, SECURITY & ENERGY-EFFICIENCY
FTL Systems' ultra high performance processors and associated system architecture
enable a unique, commercial cognitive system. They trade compatibility with
legacy X86 and X86-64 binaries to achieve unprecedented features including:
High Numerical Performance
High Cybernetic Performance
Strong Intrinsic Security
High Integrity Programming
Core Technical Capabilities:
Our systems integrate with legacy WinTel (Windows / Intel) clients to support existing applications.
Maximum performance and security depends on using with integrated Veracity thick clients and servers
using a Linux / KDE desktop. Multi-user Veracity servers are the product family's center piece.
They offload applications where possible to shared, high performance computers ranging from a 4U
form factor through commercial exascale platforms. They offer a comprehensive hardware and
software architecture on which to run application-specific software suites. Veracity builds
foremost for the future, secondarily for the past.
Veracity's architecture builds on more than ten years of prototypes and application evaluation to
derive an integrated general purpose processor and system architecture which excels at both numerical
and cybernetic processing. Retrofitting a forty year old architecture with array (GPU) and then artificial
intelligence processing implies major compromises in performance, capacity and power efficiency. Drawn from
our more then two decades of building computer systems during the artificial intelligence era, we realized
that optimizing intelligence for electronics requires a different approach than biological organisms for
maximum capability. Veracity makes the leap from artificial intelligence to true cybernetic intelligence.
Our processors excel at real world jobs that integrate numerical processing and intelligence in varying
Veracity assumes that information is value and that there are those in the world who seek to divert this
value. More than forty years ago, when legacy X86 processors were born, sharing information was in its
infancy. Today's world requires sharing with caution. This paradigm underlies Veracity processors and
system architecture in ways that could not be imagined forty years ago.
Veracity was designed knowing that in the new era, energy stewardship was a critical value. The system was
designed knowing that numerical operations and cybernetic inferences needed to require minimal energy
despite maximum performance. Veracity was co-designed along with a system for affordable, continuous
(24/365) energy from the sun. However heat from any processor operations still contributes to global
warming; Veracity minimizes this contribution. Veracity was designed for maximum performance systems
rather than absolute minimum power.
Veracity was designed for carefully architected and rapid sharing of information intermediates
across up to several thousand tightly coupled processors. Combined with processor implementations
ranging up to a PetaFLOP / PetaIPS per core, this comfortably and efficiently takes Veracity up into
the commercial exascale era. The resulting systems are industrially affordable and designed for high
Veracity was designed for an era in which data input and output are often massive. Applications such
as real-time immersive reality for media, database cybernetics across massive information stores and
signal processing for wireless telecommunications greatly exceed waht microprocessors and personal
computers were imagined to provide. Streams are no longer millions or billions of bytes per second,
the units are tera bits and exabits. The new era's bandwidth requirement shaped Veracity.
Veracity addresses the need for specific realtime responses. Immersive reality requires generation
of an extremely high definition, photo realistic rendering at 24 to 30 frames per second. Conventional
X86-64 processors with a GPU require 15 to 30 minutes per frame (a speedup of about 50,000 times).
5G telecommunications employ higher bandwidth channels and more of them in the base station. In order
to implement data streams for a high end 5G base station in software, more than 1,000 speedups are
required. Business and commercial requires a response of about 0.7 seconds. With arbitrarily high
loading and complexity, conventional microprocessor clouds crash, costing sales. Veracity was built
for rapid reponse.
Veracity was designed to help ensure that results are not only fast, they are correct by design. Parallel
processing which always results in one of the correct answers is hard. Veracity's architecture (processor
and system) was designed to greatly increase the probability of correct and trustworthy answers with modest
expeditures in software development and application test. Throwing a massive number of human resource at
the problem is no longer practical; Veracity is the solution.
Veracity is designed and manufactured in Europe using European
and Asian components for top quality and long term operational
stability. Where feasible, standards are utilized such as the
Advanced Telecommunications Archtecture (ATCA and Micro-ATCA).
Networking standards through 100G and Linux interfaces facilitate
FTL Systems' Veracitytm Supercomputer:
Each column of FTL Systems' Veracity high-end servers (above)
deliver up to 50 Peta floating point operations per second (FLOPS)
and up to 50 Peta Inferences Per Second (IPS). Systems comprised
of multiple columns deliver commercially practical ExaFLOP/ExaIPS
Breakthough security makes clouds practical for your
compartmentalized internal or customer secrets.
Breakthrough energy efficiency and continuous solar
energy systems dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership.
FTL Systems' Veracitytm Departmental Server:
The Veracity mid-range servers deliver up to 5P FLOPS / 5P IPS in three, extended depth racks.
Ensembles of several rack sets deliver a single system image up to several tens of PetaFLOP
and PetaIPS. With some reduction in the performance, conventional PCI channels may be added
for existing peripheral devices.
Mid-range and supercomputer rack sets may be combined into a single system image. This form
of extensibility does complicate load balancing among faster and slower implementations of
FTL Systems' Veracitytm Thick Client:
The Veracity thick client provides up to 5T FLOPS / 5T IPS in a convenient, under-monitor
ITX form factor. It provides a convenient user front-end in a client-server configuration
sharing a common security environment. Up to two displays are supported, each up to 4K
pixels along with multi-channel audio.
