Company sees HP's HPC Accelerator Program as strategic program for broader market adoption through HP servers
DRESDEN, Germany, June 17 -- Mitrionics, Inc., developer of the Mitrion Virtual Processor (MVP) and the Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform , will be exhibiting its latest technologies for FPGA-based accelerated computing at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC'08) being held this June 17-20, 2008, in Dresden, Germany. Mitrionics will discuss future hybrid computing strategies and support for accelerated computing solutions for the Hewlett Packard ProLiant and BladeSystem servers using Intel and Xilinx architectures. New FPGA modules available in PCI Express will enable high-performance solutions for companies and organizations seeking accelerated, low power computing solutions. Mitrionics is located in the International Supercomputing Conference booth #D08.
"The FPGA-Accelerated Computing industry is completing the architectural foundation needed for broader market adoption," said Anders Dellson, CEO of Mitrionics AB. "Our collaboration with HP will ensure that the Mitrionics' MVP is optimized for HP systems and available for customer projects."
The Hewlett Packard Accelerator Program is among the first in a set of programs from HP to address the most critical challenges facing customers with intensive computing requirements for large-scale; scientific, enterprise web ,and technical computing. HP programs are helping customers benefit from new HPC technologies that will enable them to more quickly analyze large amounts of data and perform increasingly complex simulations, providing greater insight and helping them to make better decisions.
"Mitrionics' MVP processor and Software Platform simplifies the development of FPGA-accelerated applications for customers seeking higher performance from the combination of the fastest CPUs and FPGAs," said Ed Turkel, HPC product and technology marketing manager in the Scalable Computing and Infrastructure Organization at HP. "We're working closely with Mitrionics through our HPC Accelerator Program to make it easier for our customers to develop and deploy accelerated applications, better enabling their research and business outcomes."
"HP's and it's FPGA partners support fast multicore systems with standard interface FPGAs, combined with Mitrionics' MVP processor and Software Platform, will provide customers with a high quality platform for developing and deploying accelerated applications," said Mike Calise, executive vice president of Mitrionics, Inc. "Customers have been demanding this, and we're excited to partner with HP to bring a solution to market."
About the Mitrion Platform and Mitrion Virtual Processor
The fine-grained, massively parallel Mitrion Virtual Processor (MVP) is the base of the Mitrion Platform. It runs software written in the Mitrion-C parallel programming language and completely eliminates the need for the developer to master hardware High level design languages. The MVP has a unique architecture that is both massively parallel and lets it be adapted to each program it is running in order to maximize performance. Together with the Mitrion Software Development Kit, it offers a unique solution for developing high performance computing applications for FPGAs on a true software level. This dramatically reduces the total development costs for FPGA-based software acceleration, and more importantly, enables the combined high performance and enterprise web industries to benefit from MVP FPGA application acceleration.
Founded in 2001 and privately held, Mitrionics is the technology leader in FPGA-based processing for Accelerated Computing, providing greater processing performance and a greener computing alternative, because of lower energy consumption. The Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform includes the Mitrion Virtual Processor (MVP) and Mitrion SDK with Mitrion-C compiler. The Mitrion Platform is unique because it eliminates the need for circuit design skills, thus making FPGA performance accessible to scientists and developers all over the world. Mitrionics has key industry relationships with chip companies Intel, AMD, Xilinx and Altera, systems vendors SGI, HP and Cray, and module suppliers Nallatech, XtremeData and DRC. Mitrionics is located in Lund, Sweden, and Los Gatos, Calif. For more information, visit the company Web site at www.mitrionics.com, or call 408-966-8500, or email: email@example.com.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

he study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
