PRESS RELEASE

Key customers trial Allinea DDT for the Nvidia CUDA architecture

A pre-release version of Allinea Software's Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) for the Cuda architecture is now available to selected end user customers.

Following a successful collaboration with Nvidia and the Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique (CEA), Allinea Software has developed a version of DDT that offers native support for Nvidia Tesla GPUs based on the massively parallel Cuda architecture. This Linux-specific version of DDT complements and extends the capabilities of Nvidia's Cuda Toolkit by providing the ability to debug HPC applications across clusters of multi-core x86-64 servers, each of which may contain multiple Telsa GPUs. The intuitive GUI interface offers a seamless debugging experience on these hybrid architectures by combining features for MPI, OpenMP and Cuda within a single, easy-to-use development platform.

A full version of DDT for the Cuda architecture is expected in Q1 2010, although potential customers are invited to contact Allinea if they are interested in early access to this technology.
