WARWICK, England, Nov. 17 -- Allinea Software today announced that it has made available a pre-release version of the Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) for the CUDA architecture to selected end-user customers. This software will be demonstrated live at SC09.
Following a successful collaboration with NVIDIA and the Commissariat Energie Atomique (CEA), Allinea Software has developed a version of DDT that offers native support for NVIDIA Tesla GPUs based on the massively parallel CUDA architecture. This Linux-specific version of DDT complements and extends the capabilities of NVIDIA's CUDA Toolkit by providing the ability to debug HPC applications across clusters of multicore x86-64 servers, each of which may contain multiple Telsa GPUs. The intuitive GUI interface offers a seamless debugging experience on these hybrid architectures by combining features for MPI, OpenMP and CUDA within a single, easy-to-use development platform.
"Over recent months, our technical team has been working closely with NVIDIA to ensure that we can provide native debugging capabilities on CUDA-enabled hardware. At the same time, we have collaborated with key end-users, and in particular the CEA, to define product features that are specific to this particular programming paradigm," said Michael Rudgyard, CEO of Allinea Software. "By providing developers with a consistent framework for debugging multi-process, multi-threaded code that runs on native x86-64 hardware as well as on Tesla co-processors, we believe that we can help PetaFlop computing on hybrid architectures to become a mainstream technology."
"GPUs are delivering transformative performance increases in scientific computing applications, speeding up discovery anywhere from 20 to 200 times," said Andy Keane, general manger of Tesla business at NVIDIA. "Tools like Allinea DDT play a crucial role in the development of scalable GPU computing applications by reducing the time and effort it takes to develop large scale applications." A full version of DDT for the CUDA architecture is expected in Q1 2010, although potential customers are invited to contact Allinea if they are interested in early access to this technology. Allinea Software and NVIDIA will be exhibiting at the Supercomputing Conference (SC09) in Portland, Ore., from Nov. 16-20, 2009. Demonstrations of DDT for the CUDA architecture will take place on the Allinea stand, booth #1808.

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...

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.
