Nov. 12 -- Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) -- a multi-program science and technology laboratory managed for the U.S. Department of Energy -- has once again selected Allinea Software as its collaboration partner. As the leading supplier of software development tools for high performance computing (HPC), Allinea's market leading solution Allinea DDT has now been chosen as the debugger of choice for Hybrid GPU software -- where few industry-strength tools exist.
Mike Fish, the new chief executive officer at Allinea Software, explains: "Allinea Software has built numerous collaboration partnerships with leading HPC centres around the world on the basis of having the most scalable tools in the industry. Following on from our recent success with the CEA in Europe and a previous project with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, we are delighted that our market leadership is now more recognised. Allinea DDT is now the debugger of choice for Hybrid GPU systems. We have established a technology leadership position in GPU/CUDA debugging, and have built a successful partnership with Nvidia around complementing their products with world-class tools. Furthermore, we now bring the best scalability and ease to use to GPU/CUDA that's available on the market today."
Oak Ridge National Laboratory will leverage the scalability and ease of use of Allinea DDT as it develops the critical tools for GPU computing with CUDA. This collaboration leverages the strengths of Allinea Software as well as partners like NVIDIA, Caps Enterprise HMPP and others.
Dr. Richard Graham, group leader for the Applications Performance Tools group of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, states: "Allinea Software has been an outstanding collaboration partner for Oak Ridge National Laboratory. They have the right technology, expertise, and have engaged others player in the GPU computing community of interest to Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Allinea is providing Oak Ridge National Laboratory with its Allinea DDT for CUDA. They are a proven member of our team and we are very excited to be working with them again."
Allinea Software will be exhibiting at the Supercomputing Conference (SC10) in New Orleans, La., from November 15 -18, 2010; in booth #2305.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
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 study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

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.
