High-density GPGPU computing solutions

T-Platforms Group has announced that it will release a range of high-density computing solutions based on Nvidia Fermi architecture and Tesla 20-series GPUs. The company's upcoming heterogeneous HPC blade solution will feature a high compute density design along with power-saving schemes for heterogeneous environments in its Clustrx OS, dynamically switching GPGPU-based nodes on and off depending on workload.

The company states that it has identified high-density computing systems based on GPGPU as the next logical step in system development for the HPC community. The company sees expanding ISV roadmaps for GPGPU support, along with increased customer interest, as proof of the maturity of the technology and an indicator of the market potential of upcoming high-density products.

T-Platforms plans to unveil its Tesla GPU-based HPC solutions at the GPU Technology Conference, being held September 20-23, 2010 at the San Jose Convention Centre.
