ActiveEon and NVIDIA for Multi-GPUs Support [Monday November, 16th 2009]


ActiveEon Announces Strategic Relationship with NVIDIA for Multi-GPUs Support with ProActive Parallel Suite

SC09— PORTLAND, Oregon – November 16, 2009–ActiveEon, your dedicated technology partner for accelerating and scaling up your enterprise applications, today announces a strategic relationship with NVIDIA in order to ease the deployment of Cuda Tasks on GPUs and Multi-GPUs with the new release of ProActive Parallel Suite.

Multi-GPUs is a new paradigm and architecture proposed by NVIDIA, featuring several NVIDIA cards installed on the same Host, and many NVIDIA cards installed on different Hosts. ProActive makes it possible to find the appropriate machine to execute a given GPU program, and to appropriately schedule workload of GPU jobs in a successive manner, including on several machines each equipped with multiple NVIDIA cards.

ProActive Parallel Suite® Version 4.2 has just been released with such powerful NVIDIA GPU features. ProActive provides a powerful innovative Open Source Solution (OW2 & OSA consortium) for multi-cores to Enterprise Grid & Cloud computing.  It provides customers with rapid development of HPC, Grid and Cloud Applications. ProActive Parallel Suite Version 4.2, Nov. 2009, features: •    ProActive Programming 4.2:  Java Parallel Toolkit •    ProActive Scheduling 2.0 :      Multi-Platform Job Scheduler •    ProActive Resourcing 2.0:      Desktop, Cluster, Grid & Cloud Resource Manager

“More than ever, the future of parallel computing resides in a strong collaboration between Multi-Cores CPUs and Multi-GPUs. ProActive Scheduling combined with ProActive Resourcing makes it possible to seamlessly manage heterogeneous IT Infrastructures that include various GPU cards from NVIDIA.” said Denis Caromel, founder of ProActive Parallel Suite and ActiveEon, Head of INRIA OASIS Research Team. “Flexible Heterogeneous Computing, where portability (Windows, Linux, Mac) works in tandem with versatility (Desktops, Cluster, Grid and Clouds), is what makes such a breakthrough possible.” added Christian Delbé, ActiveEon Technical Director.

Thanks to the ProActive Parallel Suite integrated solution, it is now possible to: •    aggregate all Windows and Linux desktops and distribute the workload over them, •    seamlessly handle and integrate Linux and Windows clusters, •    extend resources with Public Clouds (e.g. Amazon EC2), •    appropriately map Cuda tasks and Jobs on all the NVIDIA GPUs available across all the resources above.

Moreover, ProActive makes it possible from an Enterprise infrastructure (Grid, Private Cloud) to dynamically use resources residing on Public Clouds, including NVIDIA GPUs. From within a Public Cloud (e.g. Amazon EC2), ProActive makes it possible to dynamically use resources outside the Cloud (e.g. back on the Enterprise Grid or Private Cloud), including NVIDIA GPUs (Cloud Seeding).

ActiveEon guarantees to its users, customers and partners the ongoing ease of deployment of Cuda Tasks on GPUs and Multi-GPUs. Therefore, our joint customers will be able to utilize the power of parallel processing from their desktops to the clusters, and all the way to the cloud, with familiar and easy-to-use tools.

ActiveEon already supports Dual GTX-280, Tesla C1060, S1070, and is committed to support the new NVIDIA Tesla products, such as the new Tesla GPU Fermi.

ProActive Parallel Suite solutions are being showcased at SuperComputing 2009 in Portland, Oregon, November 14-20 at INRIA’s booth 1405.
