CULA Added to TSUBAME 2.0

by Liana

We are excited to share that the engineers in the TSUBAME 2.0 team have chosen to add our library CULA to their software stack!

Here is what Professor Satoshi Matsuoka, TSUBAME 2.0 project leader, had to say about it:

"The majority of the achievable FLOPS in TSUBAME2.0 is due to the power of the GPUs, so it is essential that we provide as comprehensive a software stack to utilize them to their fullest potential as possible. CULA will be an extremely valuable part of the portfolio, allowing our scientists to conduct large scale simulations at unprecedented speeds."

Tokyo Tech signed up for  a 4-year site license and this means that users of their supercomputer will rely on having access to the most current version of CULA.

We would like to recognize here Katsuya Nishi, CEO of Best Systems, who facilitated this effort with Tokyo Tech.  Best Systems is one of our major CULA resellers in Japan and we look forward to a long-lasting, mutually-beneficial relationship with their team and customers.

“I believe there is a large need for a GPU-optimized linear algebra library such as CULA in Japan,” said Katsuya Nishi, CEO of Best Systems.  “Tsubame 2.0 is a great example of how the Japanese scientific community has embraced GPGPU computing on a petaflop scale. The trend is for an even greater adoption of GPUs across all major segments, including industry, government and higher education. Having a comprehensive GPU library like CULA in our portfolio gives us a great competitive edge.”
