St Albans, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, 2011/11/14 - Boston Limited, now in its 18th year as a distribution partner for Super Micro Computer®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI) today started the NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPU SimCluster program providing powerful preconfigured solutions to researchers and scientists.
The Tesla GPU SimCluster is an off-the-shelf, ready-to-deploy cluster solution. Available in configurations that deliver 8 to 42 teraflops of HPC performance, it delivers the easiest way to buy, use and manage a GPU-based research cluster. With the Tesla GPU SimCluster, academic research departments can take GPU-accelerated apps from workstation to multi-node cluster, speeding research and discovery.
Boston offers 3 preconfigured GPU computing configurations to jumpstart the research of scientist in various scientific domains. The basic SimCluster configuration consists of 8 NVIDIA Tesla M2075 GPUs and 4 Intel CPUs, providing a compute performance of 8 Teraflops. The price of this configuration is £26,990. The performance configuration combines 16 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs and 8 Intel CPUs to a compute performance of 20 Teraflops, priced at £52,990. And finally, the maximum configuration hosts 32 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs and 16 Intel CPUs in a 42U rack providing 42 TeraFlops of compute power. This price for this supercomputer will be £112,999.
“Boston are delighted to be a global solutions provider for the Tesla GPU SimCluster program”, says Manoj Nayee, Managing Director at Boston Limited. “Thanks to the harnessing of NVIDIA Tesla GPU’s, the Boston designed MD SimCluster is able to cut down simulation time from days to hours, and is specifically preconfigured to accelerate molecular dynamics packages such as AMBER and NAMD, that are able to run their codes faster by up to 22ns/day with the use of just one GPU!
These solutions provide a powerful tool for researchers and scientists to advance their science through faster simulations. The NVIDIA Tesla GPU SimCluster is the easiest way to start using GPUs that offer supercomputer scale HPC performance at substantially lower cost and power.
“The Tesla GPU SimCluster program provides scientists with easy access to GPU computing power,” said Walter Mundt-Blum, vice president PSG EMEAI at NVIDIA. “Scientists will be able to accelerate their research with faster simulations across a variety of scientific domains. NVIDIA is thrilled to work with Boston to help push the boundaries of research by providing supercomputer performance more affordably.”
