Increasing the energy efficiency of today's high-performance computing systems requires new approaches that go beyond homogeneous architectures, which primarily target maximum performance per node. Heterogeneous architectures that can be tailored towards the specific needs of a particular application are a promising alternative to state-of-the-art server(More)
Hyperscale servers tend to increase the resource efficiency in data centres by utilizing specialized and highly modular platforms. Instead of providing extreme high-performance nodes, scale-out is the main paradigm to increase the overall performance, i.e., adding additional energy-efficient compute nodes via high-bandwidth low-latency networks. In addition(More)
Pairwise sequence alignment is ubiquitous in modern bioinformatics. It may be performed either explicitly, e.g. to find the most similar sequences in a database, or implicitly as a hidden building block of more complex methods, e.g. for reads mapping. The alignment algorithms have been widely investigated over the last few years, mainly with respect to(More)
