TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 30 — IncrediBuild-XGE uses process virtualization to create a virtual supercomputer. By harnessing idle CPU cycles in the local network and/or public cloud, and distributing applications' computational-intensive processes for parallel processing, IncrediBuild-XGE can achieve processing speeds of up to 30x faster or more using existing hardware.
"Organizations don't realize they are sitting on a supercomputer," said Eyal Maor, Xoreax CEO. "Process virtualization allows them to leverage their unused or underused processors across the entire network, creating HPC without purchasing a single piece of additional hardware."
Multicore processors are the norm, but the software running on them isn't maximizing the value of the technology or justifying the cost. Instead of virtualizing an entire machine, process virtualization virtualizes a single process on a remote machine on demand, executing many such processes in parallel on remote CPUs and GPUs.
With process virtualization, time-consuming, processing-intensive applications can be easily transformed into lightning-fast distributed solutions that harness the power of unused and underused CPU and GPU resources across the network.
IncrediBuild-XGE offers an out-of-the-box solution that requires no integration effort, no maintenance, no custom grid API and no need to maintain a virtual machine, image banks, or files on remote machines.
"Many professional applications require heavy duty processing," concluded Mr. Maor. "With IncrediBuild-XGE you can achieve faster performance by creating your own 'virtual supercomputer' with resources you already have."
We invite you to attend our presentation, Achieving Cost-Effective HPC with Process Virtualization, at 11 a.m., Thursday, November 15, in room 155-C.

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.

For all the progress we've made in IT over the last 50 years, there's one area of life that has steadfastly eluded the grasp of computers: understanding human language. Now, researchers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are utilizing a Hadoop cluster on its Longhorn supercomputer to move the state of the art of language processing a little bit further.
