Microway News Brief - December 2009

Supercomputing 2009 Report

Microway celebrated its 15th appearance at SC09 last month. Thanks to those of you who visited Microway at the conference. Attendees were very interested in our GPU compute clusters. Our OctoPuter with eight NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPUs was very popular. On this platform, we displayed a compelling demonstration of relative performance of GPUs vs CPUs using a simulation of electromagnetic wave propagation. This demo was provided by the GPU experts at Tech-X, a long time Microway customer.

We also exhibited our InfiniScope and Link-Checker diagnostic software running on a heterogeneous HPC cluster with multicore Intel and AMD processors. Our latest clusters are setting higher standards for performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar. Finally, there was significant interest in Microway's new FasTree 36-port QDR InfiniBand switches.

If you have never attended a SuperComputing conference, we strongly recommend it. Microway will be exhibiting next year at SC 2010 in New Orleans. We hope to see you there.

Interviews from the Show Floor

We were interviewed by Linux Magazine and Tech Insight. Links to the videos will be posted to our home page when they are available.
