ATLANTA, Nov. 17 -- AccelerEyes today introduces its new product, LIBJACKET, a broad and fast C/C++ library for GPU computing. With over 500 C/C++ functions, LIBJACKET represents the largest GPU computing library in the world. This CUDA-based library integrates seamlessly in any application enabling optimized utilization of NVIDIA CUDA-capable GPUs, including powerful Tesla compute devices.
LIBJACKET features include functions common to image processing, signal processing, as well as basic and advanced math functions. The large breadth of functions available makes LIBJACKET useful for virtually any technical computing application.
Also, LIBJACKET benefits from key core technology, such as a runtime and just-in-time compiler which bring optimized outcomes to developers and eliminate the hassle traditionally involved in leveraging parallel hardware. LIBJACKET includes a GPU matrix class in C/C++ along with simple rules for matrix indexing and manipulations. Simply cast your data to the GPU matrix class and the full GPU function library becomes available to your application.
To date, AccelerEyes has been exclusively known for Jacket, a MATLAB GPU computing platform used by thousands of programmers worldwide. With LIBJACKET, the same core GPU computing technology which makes Jacket so powerful is now available to C/C++ programmers.
"LIBJACKET represents a major step forward for AccelerEyes," said James Malcolm, VP of Engineering at AccelerEyes. "With LIBJACKET, any software developer can now accelerate their own application in the same way that we've been accelerating MATLAB since 2007. Programming with LIBJACKET is really easy and dramatically lowers the programmability barriers that prevent many people from jumping into GPU computing."
LIBJACKET is currently released as a free beta product. During this free beta period, LIBJACKET will continually be upgraded. We anticipate the first commercial release of LIBJACKET to occur sometime in early 2011.
See the company website for more details. Also, visit booth #1120 at SC10 to chat with Jacket developers and to see live demos. Learn more at http://wiki.accelereyes.com/wiki/index.php/LIBJACKET.
Pricing and availability
LIBJACKET is currently available as a FREE beta product, available for immediate download from the website at http://www.accelereyes.com/downloadLibjacket.
AccelerEyes launched in 2007 to commercialize Jacket, the first software platform to deliver productivity in GPU computing. With advanced language processing and runtime technology to transform CPU applications to high performance GPU codes, Jacket extends from desktop workstation performance to also fully leverage GPU clusters. Based in Atlanta, Ga., the privately-held company markets Jacket for a range of defense, intelligence, biomedical, financial, research, and academic applications.

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...

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.
