RENNES, France, Oct. 26 -- CAPS, global leader in manycore programming tools and services today announced that its HMPP compiler now supports Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2008.
Based on GPU programming and tuning directives, HMPP offers an incremental programming model that allows developers with different levels of expertise to fully exploit GPU hardware accelerators in their legacy code.
The newly announced Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 provides HMPP customers with a familiar environment and rich tool-set that enables developers and HPC professionals to spend less time coping with complex technologies. Windows HPC Server makes it even easier to bring the power of technical computing to analysts, engineers and scientists, giving them the computation resources they need to fuel product innovation and accelerate time-to-market.
"CAPS provides valuable solutions for manycore programming. By coupling their products and expertise with Windows HPC Server 2008 R2, CAPS is extending those capabilities to a much broader audience of technical computing users," said Bill Hamilton, director of technical computing at Microsoft. "Together, we help ensure our joint customers make the most of technical computing power and rapidly advance HPC solutions."
"Since 2009, CAPS has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and a proven ability to meet Microsoft customers' needs. HMPP support of Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 as well as Visual Studio 2008 is a great achievement: these tools combination provides the developer a fast and easy way to port applications onto GPU-based architectures," said Denis Gerrer, in charge of Microsoft partnership at CAPS.
CAPS will be demonstrating its HMPP latest release at SC10 in New Orleans, November 15-18 (Booth #1427).

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...

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.
