DRESDEN, Germany, June 19 -- 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) being held June 17-20 in Dresden, Germany. Mitrionics will discuss future hybrid computing strategies and support for accelerated computing solutions for the HP ProLiant and HP 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 HP Accelerator Program addresses critical challenges facing customers with intensive large-scale, scientific, enterprise web, and technical computing requirements. HP programs help customers use high performance computing (HPC) technologies to quickly analyze large amounts of data and perform increasingly complex simulations, providing greater insight for better-informed decisions.
"For customers seeking higher performance from the combination of the fastest CPUs and FPGAs, Mitrionics' MVP and Software Platform simplifies the development of FPGA-accelerated applications," said Ed Turkel, HPC product and technology marketing manager in the Scalable Computing and Infrastructure Organization at HP. "We're working with Mitrionics through our HPC Accelerator Program to make it easier for customers to develop and deploy accelerated applications, better enabling their research and business outcomes."
"The fast multicore systems with standard interface FPGAs supported by HP and its partners, combined with Mitrionics' MVP 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 work 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 massively parallel and adaptable 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, call 408-966-8500, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
