The Art of Preparing OSv Packages

In this post we describe the use of the Capstan tool being extended within MIKELANGELO project. Capstan is a member of the Lightweight Execution Environment Toolbox (LEET) responsible for the management of composable application packages and OSv unikernel lifecycle. This post explains how these packages are prepared so that they are 100% compatible with OSv…

OpenFOAM aerodynamic use case

Pipistrel, a Slovenian light aircraft manufacturer, uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations in order to design its aircrafts. Pipistrel is currently limited to a small in-house cluster, that is why it is exploring different options in order to increase the fidelity and reduce the calculations time of its CFD simulations. Pipistrel’s main CFD software is…

Awesome Architecture

Introduction: The goal of MIKELANGELO is to develop an approach and the accompanying software that will disrupt the traditional HPC and Private Cloud fields. Currently, the so-called hypervisors are used to divide a physical node into one or more virtual nodes (virtual machines – VMs), which leads to sharing of resources for an efficient overall…
