Supercomputing in a nutshell
HPC Compass 2010 now available from transtec free of charge
A whole chapter is dedicated to GPU Computing in the HPC Compass. Dr. Oliver Tennert, Director Marketing & HPC Solutions at transtec, says: "transtec has supported the rapid development of GPU Computing right from the beginning. The growing success of our transtec GPU systems amongst universities and the midsized company sector shows that GPU has become an important topic in the meantime, also beyond the largescale research and industrial sector. Even experienced application developers still often don't know how they can use GPU Computing to develop their code. This is where the transtec HPC Compass comes in useful."
Based on their enormous computing power, modern graphic processors (GPUs) are not only in the position to display complex 3D simulations, but also to calculate general numerical problems. Their performance exceeds that of the latest multicore processors many times over. transtec has already been working together with NVIDIA for many years. With its CUDA architecture, NVIDIA has influenced the development of GPU Computing considerably. The new HPC Compass explains the basic features of GPU Computing and presents the CUDA architecture.
The HPC Compass covers other topics such as efficient cluster management, Windows HPC Server 2008 R2, parallel NFS and the Intel Cluster Ready Program - a standard for the Quality Assurance of HPC cluster installations brought into being by Intel.
