Microway’s GPU workstation now available with CULA R12, free copy!

by Liana

Today we announced a reseller partnership with Massachussets-based Microway, a major hardware vendor in the HPC market.

Designed from the ground up for ultimate customer satisfaction, the WhisperStation™-Tesla Personal Supercomputer integrates NVIDIA Tesla Fermi C2075 GPUs.

A true value added vendor, Microway is going to help us make CULA even more accessible to developers, scientists, and researchers.

To get our partnership off to a great start, we are offering a copy of CULA R12 free of charge with the purchase of their GPU desktop machine WhisperStation.

Entirely customized, Microway's WhisperStation machines are available with up to four NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, one or two Intel Xeon CPU(s), up to 96 GB memory, and up to four 3 TB disk drives. It can be ordered directly from Microway, but keep in mind that this offer ends on December 31st and is valid only in the U.S. and Canada.

This is what Stephen Fried, CTO of Microway, had to say about it:

“GPU-accelerated WhisperStations and clusters integrated with CULA keep Microway’s customers on the leading edge of performance. Customers can achieve significant speedups simply by replacing their existing linear algebra functionality with CULA, whether it is currently provided by a library or not. We are very pleased to offer our customers CULAtools because it has such broad applicability in fields as diverse as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, life sciences, and financial analysis.”

We certainly hope users will take advantage of this opportunity and join our CULA user community for the long haul.

NVIDIA Webinar for CULA

by John

On Thursday, July 21, at 9AM pacific time I will be conducting a CUDA Webinar Series feature with NVIDIA. I will be covering the basics of CULA, with some emphasis time on the new Link Interface feature from R12. We'll even do a demo with some live applications to show the power of this interface, followed by some live Q&A with the attendees. You must register for this event at NVIDIA's page.

If you can't make it to the Webinar live, NVIDIA will post it for later viewing at the GPU Computing Webinars page. Read more about R12 and the Link Interface here and here.


Featured on CUDA Spotlight: John Humphrey

by Liana

John Humphrey, GPU Computing Team Leader

When Calisa Cole from NVIDA contacted me asking if she could feature John Humphrey on their CUDA Spotlight series, I got pretty excited.  "What a great opportunity for John to share about the work he and his team are doing on computational fluid dymanics for the NAVY," I thought.

Most people know us for CULA and our CUDA training program. We do so much more at EM Photonics!  I hope you will enjoy reading John's interview with Calisa, and learning more about this particular CFD-related project he is leading. Below is just a snapshot of how the interview went:

NVIDIA: One of your current projects is an aircraft carrier landing modeling system for the US Navy. Tell us about it.
John: The Navy has a strong desire for CFD (computational fluid dynamics) modeling for a number of reasons. Foremost among these is to be confident of the safety of both aircraft and pilot. For each vessel and aircraft pair, there are tables describing the difficulty of landings and takeoffs based on a large number of variables, such as light conditions, wind speed and direction, and approach angle.

We welcome you to read the entire interview and share your comments here!
