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 Energy Efficiency
Extreme Scalable High Bandwidth Rapid Response 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 mixtures.

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 aggregate efficiency.

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 customer adoption.

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 systems.

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 the processor.

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.
