AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 15 -- NextIO, the premier provider of next-generation I/O consolidation solutions, today announced a strategic distribution agreement with PNY, a designer, manufacturer and supplier of graphics cards and memory technology, wherein PNY will exclusively distribute NextIO's vCORE Express and vCORE Extreme products to resellers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. vCORE Express 2050, vCORE Express 2070 and vCORE Extreme products are available to order immediately.
"We are pleased to be selected as the exclusive distributor for NextIO's innovative GPU consolidation products for EMEA and to provide our reseller partners in those countries with GPU solutions that offer dense server clusters, easier lifecycle management, and a lower total cost of ownership"
Designed by NVIDIA and delivered by NextIO, the vCORE Express product line are entry-level solutions for consolidated GPU computing systems suitable for workstation, workgroup and small cluster computing applications requiring a small number of jobs and GPUs. With four massively parallel CUDA-enabled GPUs in a 1U system, vCORE Express brings economies of scale to GPU customers by delivering the same performance of a traditional CPU-based cluster -- all at 10 percent of the cost and five percent of the power consumption.
"We are pleased to be selected as the exclusive distributor for NextIO's innovative GPU consolidation products for EMEA and to provide our reseller partners in those countries with GPU solutions that offer dense server clusters, easier lifecycle management, and a lower total cost of ownership," said Laurent Chapoulaud, professional solutions marketing manager EMEA, PNY.
"With PNY's reputation of delivering a full spectrum of high-quality products that elevate the overall computing experience, the partnership was a natural choice for us," said Kerry Reid, vice president, worldwide channel sales and marketing, NextIO. "Our partnership with them will help bring our leading I/O consolidation GPU solutions to the EMEA market."

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.

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.
