STOCKHOLM, Sweden, April -- At GPU Systems headquarters 2012, the company released their latest version of the Libra Platform & SDK with enhanced support for developers to uniformly accelerate software applications across major operating systems, Windows, Mac and Linux. Libra Compute API for developers offers performance portability and direct compute access via standard programming environments C/C++, Java, C# and matlab to execute math operations on top of current and future compute architectures, including the latest GPUs, x86/x64 CPUs and with broad support for compute devices compatible with lowlevel specific APIs – OpenCL, CUDA, OpenGL and standard x86/x64 compute APIs.
– - With this release we show that using the very latest advanced compute technologies are available to develop software applications using standard programming languages & environments. It is now possible to create software to execute on a broad range of CPUs and GPUs and across major platforms without any intervention or modification to program code, says GPU Systems founder Marco Hjerpe.
* Unleash the Teraflop performance of CPUs and GPUs and future compute accelerators to execute across major operating systems Windows, Mac and Linux.
* Libra API direct compute access via standard programming languages, C/C++, Java, C# and matlab etc.
* Develop code once, deploy on numerous CPU and GPU devices.
* More performance with less code compared to hardware specific lowlevel APIs, easier to maintain applications & algorithms and faster time to market – no need to learn new tools or programming languages

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 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.
