Lenovo customers get FREE six month Jacket software subscription
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 15 -- AccelerEyes today announced an agreement to bring better MATLAB performance to Lenovo ThinkStation workstation, ThinkCentre desktops, and ThinkPad laptops through graphics (GPU) computing. Through this relationship, Lenovo customers are eligible to receive a free six month license for Jacket software, enabling simple adaptation of existing MATLAB codes to run on the GPU for acceleration.
MATLAB is the most popular productive computation package used by scientists, engineers, and researchers across the world. Acceleration technologies, such as Jacket from AccelerEyes, benefit users by helping them innovate faster and stay at the forefront of innovation and technology leadership.
Jacket is the premier software library for GPU computing in MATLAB. It enables thousands of MATLAB functions to run on the GPU without modification. Jacket programmers are able to convert existing MATLAB codes to use the GPU in minutes, not weeks or months required to write good low-level code.
"At Lenovo, we're committed to helping our customers do more by bringing them the latest innovations," said Tom Tobul, vice president marketing, Software and Peripherals Business Unit, Lenovo. "By working with AccelerEyes on their Jacket software, we're offering MATLAB users an exclusive six month license so they can experience firsthand the increased computing speed and productivity associated with GPU acceleration."
"Lenovo PC products deliver great performance and are uniquely capable of delivering excellent value to MATLAB programmers," said John Melonakos, CEO of AccelerEyes. "Lenovo CPUs are each enhanced by powerful NVIDIA CUDA-capable GPUs. We are pleased to make Jacket freely available to Lenovo owners to advance scientific, financial, and engineering efforts."

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.
