TYAN FT72-B7015 and FT77-B7015 support 8 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing processors
FREMONT, Calif., May 4 -- TYAN, an industry-leading server platform provider and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., announces its strategic collaboration with NVIDIA to offer GPU computing platforms to the server channel market. The TYAN FT72-B7015 and FT77-B7015 platforms support up to 8 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing processors to deliver superior cluster computing capability and demonstrate a high scalability with higher efficiency.
TYAN and NVIDIA's remarkable strategic collaboration provides complete GPU computing solutions to the server channel market. As compared to the previous generation, the TYAN FT72-B7015 and FT77-B7015 platforms with NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing processors achieve incredible performance for computationally-intensive applications that require a massively parallel architecture. Both of these platforms have passed the NVIDIA Tesla M2050 certification, and can be found on the TYAN and NVIDIA Web sites.
"Exceeding customer expectations is more critical than ever in today's IT industry," said Albert Mu, vice president of the TYAN business unit of MiTAC International Corporation. "TYAN is committed to providing superior products to clients that demand greater computing capability and less cost. The strategic collaboration of TYAN and NVIDIA provides a validated and cost-effective product portfolio that meets the increasing demand for general-purpose GPU computing solutions with higher performance and increased power efficiency."
"Tesla 20-series GPUs are designed to meet the specific needs of HPC applications, and we are seeing many cluster deployments as a result," said Andy Keane, general manager of the Tesla business at NVIDIA. "TYAN's new highly scalable platforms will contribute greatly to this momentum and allow customers to tackle increasingly larger computational challenges as GPU clusters scale to thousands of nodes."
Both the TYAN FT72-B7015 and FT77-B7015 GPU computing solutions support up to 8 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing processors in a 4U chassis. These products support 2 Intel Xeon processor 5600 series or 5500 series, 8 PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots, up to 144 GB of registered memory, 4 1-Gbit network ports, and 8 2.5" hot-swap disks to provide an outstanding cost/performance ratio with extensive GPU expandability for HPC and GPGPU applications.
The TYAN FT72-B7015 and FT77-B7015 GPU computing solutions with NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing processors will begin shipping in May. For system prices, contact your local TYAN sales representative. For more details on the product features and the bundle program, visit the TYAN Web site at www.tyan.com.

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.
