Off the shelf, ready-to-deploy cluster solution designed for academic research departments
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 15 -- Colfax International today announced the immediate availability of the NVIDIA Tesla GPU SimCluster, an off-the-shelf and ready-to-deploy cluster solution that enables academic research departments to take GPU-accelerated apps from workstation to multi-node cluster, speeding research and discovery.
The Colfax designed SimCluster is the easiest way to buy, use, and manage a GPU-based research cluster. It allows researchers to focus on science and discovery, while minimizes time spent on cluster set up and management.
"Scientists and researchers around the world are struggling with the complexity of using and managing a cluster," said Gautam Shah, President and CEO of Colfax International. "The Colfax-designed Tesla GPU SimCluster is optimally pre-configured and delivered ready-to-go, which means researchers can simply plug the system in, load their models and start simulation."
Available in configurations that deliver 10 to 42 teraflops of HPC performance, the SimCluster meets a range of research computation demands.
"The GPU SimCluster program provides a great way for researchers to quickly and easily experience the power of GPU acceleration," said Sumit Gupta, manager of the Tesla business unit at NVIDIA. "We’re delighted to work with leading technology providers like Colfax to help researchers accelerate their research projects and make new scientific discoveries."
The Colfax designed SimCluster includes:
· 4, 8, 12 or 16x 1U GPU Nodes
· 2x NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs per node
· 2x AMD Opteron / Intel Xeon CPUs per node
· QDR InfiniBand HCAs and switching
· CentOS Linux with cluster management software
The Colfax designed SimCluster is immediately available and is completely customizable to suit individual customer requirements. For more information please visit: http://www.colfax-intl.com/ms_tesla.asp?M=0.

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...

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.
