The UltraMap processing pipeline is a highly scalable processing system that adapts flexibly to the IT environment.
An UltraMap processing system usually consists of one or several front-end machines that are used to interact with the data and are not designed for processing. In addition, one or multiple processing machines are connected to the front end machine(s) and the data server(s). The processing machines handle data processing and may consist of multiple CPU and/or GPU nodes. The servers host the input, intermediate and final data. A very important part of the processing environment is the network required to transfer the data efficiently between front end, processing machines and servers.
