Allinea DDT support for Nvidia Tesla

Allinea Software has announced immediate availability of debugging support in Allinea DDT for the latest Nvidia Tesla K20 family of GPU accelerators, based on Kepler architecture and the recently released Nvidia Cuda 5 toolkit.

Allinea is playing a large role in the successful development and deployment of HPC software for accelerator systems. The newly released Allinea DDT 3.2.1 went straight into production on the number one system in the Top 500 list – Titan, Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Cray XK7 with 299,008 CPU cores and 18,688 Tesla K20 GPU accelerators.

'Our users develop some of the most advanced scalable scientific applications seen anywhere,' said Buddy Bland, project director at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. 'Our partnership with Allinea has provided us with a robust and capable debugging tool able to solve the most complex software challenges – even at the extreme scale of Titan.'

Allinea DDT enables computational scientists on the 20 petaflop Titan system to run their applications successfully. 

'Allinea and Cray have worked together to ensure that the complete development environment is ready for the new Kepler GPUs and Cuda toolkit,' added Peg Williams, Cray’s senior vice president of high-performance computing systems.

'With the advanced Allinea DDT debugger supporting the Cray OpenACC compiler on this platform, developers can take advantage of accelerators on our powerful Cray XK6 and XK7 systems with confidence.'
