UPPSALA, Sweden, Sept. 8 -- Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single- and multicore environments, today announced that it has partnered with HiPERiSM, an expert consultancy and software reseller in the high performance segment, to resell its multicore optimization tools, initially SlowSpotter and SlowSpotter Pro, in the US.
HiPERiSM Consulting, LLC, is a High Performance Computing (HPC) consultancy dedicated to working with clients in facilitating the transition to the new era of desk-side parallel processing. The key offerings are training in HPC skills, consultation support/contract development, and by acting as sales representative for key developer software technologies, such as Acumem SlowSpotter.
"We are excited to be able to offer Acumem's multicore tools to our customers," said George Delic, CEO of HiPERiSM Consulting, LLC. "We are committed to deliver the world of high performance computing (HPC) to individual scientific and engineering programmers. Over the years we have seen the number and variety of HPC performance products change, but few have delivered on the promise of end-user productivity as do the SlowSpotter products -- without demanding prior performance expertise."
Acumem's technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in both single- and multicore environments. The target customers of these tools are programmers who have expertise in optimization and also those who have no such expertise. Additional beneficiaries of the tools are capacity planners, development managers, performance evaluators, benchmarks teams, etc. Through the identification of SlowSpots, Acumem's tools help programmers to go directly to the parts of the code where improvement potential exists without any need to go through thousands of lines of code and vast amounts of data. Acumem SlowSpotter has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.
Acumem SlowSpotter Pro is the expert version of Acumem SlowSpotter. It mainly targets programmers with expert knowledge in performance optimization and gives more options in data capture, allows for an unlimited number of threads to be analyzed, and also advises on more complex code changes than does Acumem SlowSpotter. Similarly to Acumem SlowSpotter, the Pro version gives hands-on advice based on analysis of cache and bandwidth related performance problems for single- and multicore systems.
"HiPERiSM has a diverse network of clients spanning government, corporate, and academic sites that benefit from technology transfer from the HPC market place," said Mats Hovmöller, CEO at Acumem. "Adding Acumem optimization solutions to the offering will enable HiPERiSM to bring value-added services to these clients while allowing Acumem to reach a wider spectrum of customers."
Acumem is a provider of intelligent software which analyzes and optimizes application software performance in single- and multicore environments. Acumem contributes to their customers' success in maximizing the benefits of multicore technology, achieving the full potential of their systems. Acumem works closely with leading companies in the multicore market such as HP, Sun and AMD. Acumem is a privately-held company based in Uppsala, Sweden, with sales office in Boston.

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...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
