HAMBURG, May 17 -- NextIO, the premier provider of next-generation I/O consolidated solutions, today announced its participation at the 2010 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Hamburg, Germany, May 30 – June 3 at booth #700. During the course of the show, NextIO will highlight its capability to pool up to eight double-wide GPUs with its soon-to-be-announced, top-of-rack vCORE appliance. The NextIO vCORE GPU Consolidation Appliance can dynamically reconfigure server-to-GPU connections on the fly, and allows any server connected via PCI Express to access any number of GPUs depending on job requirements.
NextIO will provide live demonstrations of reconfigurable GPU compute using multiple servers to access a pool of GPUs in the vCORE Appliance. The servers will be "hot reconfigured" in various combinations of GPUs per server without rebooting servers. The vCORE appliance hosts up to 8 double-wide GPUs and connections for up to eight different servers. This demo will feature the flexibility of the chassis by demonstrating virtual migration of GPUs between systems for quick and easy reconfiguration of the computing environment.
To give a performance boost to those data-intensive applications, NextIO will also showcase the vSTOR C100 Application Acceleration Appliance. Announced in early April, The vSTOR appliance delivers from up to 7 terabytes of storage to up to five different hosts, allowing for more than 1.7 million IOPs and 6.4 gigabytes per second worth of bandwidth.
"ISC'10 promises to be a great event for NextIO on many levels," said Mike Lance, director of marketing at NextIO. "The opportunity to showcase the world's first reconfigurable GPU appliance to an HPC-centric audience and the timing of our new product launch lined up perfectly. We look forward to building strong relationships with the HPC community in Europe."
At ISC'10, NextIO will also be featured as a Forum Session presenter on Tuesday, June 1 at 12:40 p.m. in Hall H, #901. The session titled "Reducing TCO Using Manageable and Scalable GPU Compute" will be given by NextIO executives Mike Heumann, vice president of worldwide marketing, and Mike Lance, director of product marketing.
Now in its 25th year, ISC is Europe's most important conference for the HPC community, offering a strong, five-day technical program with a wide range of expert speakers and exhibits from leading research centers and vendors. A number of events complement the technical program, including Tutorials, Scientific Day, Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, a research poster session, Exhibitor Forum and the popular "Hot Seat Sessions," featuring leaders from industry and research centers. ISC'10 is open to IT-decision makers, members of the HPC global community and other interested parties.
