FREMONT, Calif., and MONTREAL, Canada, Nov. 19 – Exxact Corporation and Matrox today announced a joint demonstration, at I/ITSEC 2012, that will show how high-performance-computing content from a single NVIDIA Quadro K5000 GPU can scale in Full HD resolution up to a 16-monitor synchronized video wall while being controlled over an IP network device. This system features the Matrox Avio F120 fiber-optic KVM extender, Matrox Mura MPX Series video wall controller boards, and Matrox Maevex video distribution over IP technology in conjunction with Exxact's GPU workstation. Visit Exxact's booth #2068 at I/ITSEC, from December 3 - December 6 in Orlando, Florida.
"Exxact and Matrox are collaborating to eliminate costs I/ITSEC visitors may incur from redundant software licenses and custom development associated with scaling and enhancing HPC visualization on legacy solutions." said Jason Chen, Vice President of Exxact Corporation. "We can power more monitors from less systems for less money, and it's easier to deploy than ever before."
A Matrox Avio F120 KVM extender will be used to extend the HPC graphics output over fiber-optic cable without compressing the data or adding any latency. The Avio F120 transmitter will show the content locally on two DVI monitors, while the dual-DVI outputs of the Avio F120 receiver unit will be sent into the Mura MPX-based video wall controller. The data output from a single NVIDIA Quadro K5000 GPU, which can support up to 4 individual monitors, will then be captured, scaled, and displayed at Full HD resolution via four output/input Mura MPX boards onto a 16-monitor video wall. This demonstrates how you can take advantage of GPGPU processing power in a secure environment and remotely operate the rich graphical outputs of HPC machines, simultaneously viewing the content and adding enhancements such as scaling on large-scale visualization walls in real time.
The content will also be distributed over the network and viewed on a separate laptop through the use of the Matrox Maevex Series dedicated H.264 encode/decode platform. The Matrox Maevex will demonstrate how to cost effectively distribute the outputs of Exxact's GPU workstation for viewing on any node of a standard network. This effectively turns regular low-cost systems into nodes capable of displaying even the most graphically complex data.
"Matrox and Exxact are able to combine cutting-edge technology for GPGPU computing with cutting-edge technology for real-time visualization and collaboration," said Samuel Recine, Matrox Graphics Director of Sales Americas & Asia Pacific. "Every aspect of this demonstration will have some appeal to the visitors of a training and simulation event like I/ITSEC."
Exxact will also showcase HPC solutions featuring NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU accelerators. Based on the latest GPU architecture, NVIDIA Tesla K20 accelerators are designed from the ground up to maximize computational performance with superior power efficiency. With more than one teraflop peak double precision performance per K20 GPU board, Exxact Telsa K20 Systems are ideal for high performance computing applications including modeling, CFD, CAE, computational physics, and seismic processing.

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.

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.
