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."

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.
