MILPITAS, Calif., May 17 -- Appro, a leading provider of supercomputing solutions, today announces the availability of NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPU computing capability for the Appro Tetra and GreenBlade server platforms and Appro Xtreme-X and HyperPower Supercomputing solutions.
Based on the CUDA architecture codenamed "Fermi", the NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPU Computing Module delivers approximately 10X higher HPC application performance than the latest multicore CPUs. The Tesla M2090 GPU features many "must have" HPC capabilities including 512 computing cores per GPU at 665 gigaflops of double precision performance with ECC memory for uncompromised accuracy and reliability and an L1/L2 cache for improved bandwidth and data sharing.
The Appro Supercomputing solutions powered by the Tesla M2090 GPUs offer scalable and flexible building block architecture based on the Appro GreenBlade platform supporting up to 5 dual CPU server blades with 5 GPU expansion blades combinations in a 5U server form factor. It delivers up to 5,120 GPU cores per system. Also, Appro offers the Appro Tetra server platform with superior density based on a rack mount platform integrating 2CPU's and 4GPU's in one server while supporting up to 2,048 GPU cores per server. Appro Supercomputing solutions based on Tetra or GreenBlade platforms are pre-configured and pre-integrated including cluster and management tools with HPC professional services and support. These systems are outstanding compute density solutions for datacenter deployments and are ideal for seismic processing, biochemistry simulations, weather and climate modeling, signal processing, CAE, CFD, and data analysis.
"Appro is proud to collaborate with NVIDIA for this Tesla GPU upgrade", said John Lee, vice president of advanced technology solutions of Appro. "Working together, Appro and NVIDIA provide higher application performance with energy efficient capabilities to meet the demands of many high-performance parallel computing users."
Appro is a leading developer of innovative supercomputing solutions. Appro is uniquely positioned to support high-performance computing (HPC) markets focusing on medium to large-scale deployments. Appro accelerates technical applications and business results through outstanding price/performance, power efficient and fast time-to-market solutions that are based on the latest open standards technologies pre-integrated with cluster tools and management software including HPC professional services and support. Appro headquarters is in Milpitas, Calif., with offices in Korea, and Houston, Texas. To learn more go to http://www.appro.com.

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).

he 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.
