SAN DIEGO, Calif., May 30 -- Cirrascale Corporation, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, today announced that it has joined the NVIDIA Tesla Preferred Partner program. As a result, Cirrascale can further help its customers scale HPC applications by integrating the latest NVIDIA Tesla K20 family of GPU accelerators into its server and GPU infrastructure product lines, including the newly expanded GB5400 Series of GPGPU blade servers.
“Joining the NVIDIA Tesla Preferred Partner program enables us to provide our customers and partners with cutting-edge GPU-accelerated solutions that can improve and expand their application’s performance and scalability,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “Over the past several months, we have experienced a significant increase in interest regarding these solutions, and being part of this program further allows us to cement our commitment to customers by continually supplying the highest performing HPC solutions available.”
Cirrascale recently released its next-generation GB5400 blade server supporting up to eight GPU cards, including the latest NVIDIA Tesla K20 family of GPU accelerators. Utilizing a pair of Cirrascale proprietary 80-lane PCIe switch-enabled risers, the GB5400 supports up to eight discrete GPU accelerators in a single blade. The solution is immediately available to order and began shipping in high volume last quarter.
“Tesla GPU accelerators help HPC customers reach new levels of productivity and performance, enabling major new breakthroughs in engineering and science,” said Roy Kim, Product Manager, Tesla Accelerated Computing Business Unit at NVIDIA. “Cirrascale’s design, engineering and integration expertise is ideal to help companies looking to purchase specialized GPU-accelerated computing solutions that meet their high performance, density and scalability requirements.”
