NVIDIA Announcements From SC08
Bull, a supplier of high performance computing (HPC) technologies, is partnering with NVIDIA to provide the Tesla S1070 GPU Computing System as the accelerator option for their HPC solutions. With this announcement, HPC customers in Europe can now get integrated solutions and services from Bull that combine Tesla GPU Computing solutions with Bull's range of other products for HPC.
"NVIDIA's Tesla parallel GPU technology is truly disruptive, delivering performance increases that are transforming industries," said Fabio Gallo, VP and director of HPC Solutions at Bull. "The Tesla S1070 is a world-class solution for HPC users wanting to handle large datasets and solve complex problems fast."
In addition, Bull has assembled a team of technical experts to work with customers and optimize their Tesla based solutions to deliver best performance for their given workload. This team is also able to provide training and other services as an integral part of a full service solution.
GENCI - the French national High-Performance Computing Agency -- together with CEA, the French Atomic Energy Authority -- is one of the many organizations utilizing the massive parallel processing power of NVIDIA Tesla in a large scale supercomputing project. Built and installed by Bull, the NovaScale supercomputer takes the available power at the scientific computing complex in Bruyeres le Chatel (in the Ile de France region) to more than 300 Teraflops, making it one of the most powerful hybrid supercomputer in Europe.
The Tesla S1070 1U system is based on the NVIDIA CUDA parallel architecture. This architecture is accessible through an industry standard C language programming environment that allows developers and researchers to tap into the parallel architecture of the GPU more quickly and easily than any other solution shipping today.

NVIDIA Tesla Turbocharges High-Performance Computing Industry with HP ProLiant Servers
NVIDIA's Tesla S1070 Computing System is now being offered in the highly successful range of HP ProLiant servers. Several Tesla GPU based systems are already installed and are transforming a wide range of industries.
Acceleware, a company that specializes in enabling software vendors to leverage parallel processing architectures, has been working with Kodak to deliver a solution of clustered Tesla GPU servers for accelerating their large engineering simulations.
"Acceleware's cluster solution on NVIDIA Tesla GPU server-accelerated HP hardware enables Kodak to develop market-leading, high-performance image sensor products for consumer, professional, and advanced applications," said Herb Erhardt, Manager of the CMOS Sensors business unit at Kodak. "We have already seen significant productivity improvements that amount to greater than 10 times."
"Customers can respond rapidly to changing markets and maintain a competitive advantage by dramatically increasing the performance of their systems," said Ed Turkel, product marketing manager, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure organization at HP. "Through participation in the HP Accelerator program, NVIDIA Tesla GPUs on HP ProLiant servers deliver unparalleled performance boosts and, in some cases, enables computations not possible with previous generation technologies."
Tesla GPUs are available through HP's innovative HPC Accelerator program -- for more information, visit: www.hp.com/go/accelerators. For more information on NVIDIA Tesla S1070, visit: www.nvidia.com/object/tesla_s1070.
