DRESDEN, Germany, June 18 -- Mitrionics AB, developer of the Mitrion Virtual Processor and the Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform, and Nallatech today announced the availability of an FPGA Accelerator Kit targeted at customers within the defense and bioinformatics sectors interested in leveraging the benefits of commercial off the shelf (COTS) products. The kit comprises an 8-lane PCI Express card featuring a Xilinx FPGA directly coupled to multiple independent banks of SDRAM and SRAM memory. Programming this flexible, high performance hardware is simplified using the accompanying Mitrionics development platform. Mitrionics and Nallatech will be located in the International Supercomputing Conference booth #D08.
"The PCI Express based FPGA Accelerator Kit provides a powerful, flexible, and low-cost COTS solution for organizations wanting to develop and deploy FPGA-accelerated applications," said Anders Dellson, CEO of Mitrionics AB. "Nallatech has been a close partner of Mitrionics for several years and this joint offering and collaboration will facilitate increased application development and market adoption of accelerated computing technologies."
"Interest in the evaluation and deployment of heterogeneous computing architectures featuring FPGAs is growing rapidly across a number of market sectors," said Craig Petrie, product manager of Nallatech. "The improved Host bandwidths offered by our new PCI Express card coupled with Mitrionics' comprehensive high-level tool flow will provide customers with the ideal platform upon which they can accelerate their applications."
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 quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
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 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.
