Combined expertise for real synergy
Kalray’s reconfigurable acceleration solutions provide the opportunity for 2CRSi to expand its offer for the highly diversified enterprise datacenter market, including Small and Medium Businesses. There is a demanding and evolving need for flexibility, computing performance and fast integration, requiring easy to deploy reconfigurable solutions. With a unique architecture, Kalray’s programmable acceleration cards based on MPPA® (“Massively Parallel Processor Array”) can run real-time and compute-intensive applications on the same card and be seamlessly reconfigured during its lifetime in the field.

Through this collaboration, 2CRSi is strengthening its strategy to rapidly build tailor-made high-performance computing solutions for high-growth domains such as video surveillance, defect detection, finance algorithm optimization, Artificial Intelligence and many others.

One single card – Multiple configurations
Kalray’s MPPA manycore intelligent processor is making the KONIC™ PCIe cards fully programmable and easily reconfigurable, supporting addition, removal, or modification of optimized software modules as required during the lifetime of the card. Such module reconfiguration could include a mix of AI engines, application acceleration or protocol stacks.
Using a standard and open programmable development environment, this brings true composability and flexibility to expert system integrators such as 2CRSi.

Alain Wilmouth, CEO of 2CRSi explained: “2CRSi is always eager to develop innovative technology and provide state-of-the-art solutions. We are very excited to leverage Kalray’s technology. Starting with this demonstration at Supercomputing 2019, we want to further explore what composable and flexible solutions can be built to satisfy our customers. ultimately resulting in an optimized Total Cost of Ownership.”

Éric Baissus, CEO of Kalray commented: “2CRSi is one the most innovative solution providers delivering best in class server solutions in terms of cost, compute and power consumption. We are glad to contribute to 2CRSi’s offering with our KONIC reconfigurable cards and to enable 2CRSi to rapidly build the best solutions for their Customers.”

Demonstration at SuperComputing 2019
2CRSi and Kalray will showcase three different software configurations of the same KONIC™ reconfigurable PCIe card integrated into a dual-x86 server built by 2CRSi:

  • Multiple and heterogenous AI Inference engines (“Multi-CNN”);
  • Flexible multi-acceleration - Example of Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) acceleration;
  • High performance storage disaggregation using Kalray’s Target Controller (“KTC™”) for low latency access to high density JBOF (“Just a Bunch of Flash”).

Rare Disease CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder Granted WHO Disease Classification27.1.2020 21:32:00 EETPress release

The rare genetic disease CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder (CDD) has been designated with a new disease code in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), the medical classification list from the World Health Organization (WHO). The CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder diagnostic code will be incorporated in the October 1, 2020 classification revision. The medical classification, currently in its tenth revision (ICD-10), uses a list of alphanumeric codes to document a person’s medical condition. For example, a person with migraine headaches will receive the G43 code, and a person with type 2 diabetes the E11 code. These codes are then used for clinical research and care, and increasingly also for health insurance billing and reimbursement. According to the WHO, about 70% of the world’s health expenditures are allocated using ICD codes for reimbursement and resource allocation. There are many medical conditions that do not have a code in the international medical classification, and these disease
