Magma Joins NVIDIA Tesla Partner Program

SAN DIEGO, Calif., March 10 — Magma today announced it has joined the NVIDIA Tesla Preferred Partner Program, expanding Magma’s reach into high performance computing (HPC) by providing product support for NVIDIA’s Tesla GPU accelerator product line. As a member of the program, Magma has access to NVIDIA’s industry-leading HPC solutions, product and technology support, sales and distribution partners, related marketing assets, training, and service support.

“We are excited to join the NVIDIA Tesla Preferred Partner Program and to begin leveraging NVIDIA’s world- class support as we roll out our PCI Express Gen 3 GPU expansion products,” said Tim Miller, president of Magma. “NVIDIA technology is revolutionizing the HPC industry as GPUs gain more and more attention in solving incredibly complex problems.”

“Magma has always helped people solve problems through mission-critical performance computing, and we will continue to provide solutions in the growing field of big data analysis,” added Jim Medeiros, senior manager of business development at Magma.

NVIDIA Tesla GPUs are massively parallel accelerators based on the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing platform and programming model, and are designed from the ground up for power-efficient, high performance computing.

The company’s flagship product, the NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerator, provides double the memory and up to 40 percent higher performance than its predecessor, the Tesla K20X GPU accelerator, and 10 times higher performance than today’s fastest CPU. It features 2,8880 CUDA parallel processing cores, 12GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory, PCIe Gen-3 PCIe interconnect support, and intelligent NVIDIA GPU Boost technology, which enables users to unlock the untapped performance of a broad range of applications.

“Magma’s expertise in PCI Express expansion products makes them a great addition to our partner program,” said Roy Kim, group manager of the Tesla Accelerated Computing Business at NVIDIA. “We look forward to working with Magma to expand the value and benefits of GPU-accelerated computing to HPC customers.”
