Kingston, MA – April 15, 2010 –

Microway announces its most powerful Tesla GPU based platforms to date. All include Nvidia Tesla C2050s based on the “Fermi” architecture and new multi-core processors from both Intel and AMD in greener platforms. 80 PLUS Gold certified power supplies and larger memory and storage are featured in the new solutions. The new GPU powered platforms are delivered fully integrated with Nvidia BioWorkbench applications and the CUDA Environment to suit customers’ needs in the life sciences.

The platforms include a Microway “quietized” WhisperStation personal supercomputer, with up to four Tesla GPUs, a 9U “BioStack” with six GPU compute nodes and a 4-way SMP master, and a dense cluster design with up to 40 GPUs and 40 CPUs in 24U. BioStack and cluster densities are achieved by employing 1U servers which incorporate two Tesla GPUs, dual Six-Core Xeons or dual 12-Core Opterons and up to 3 hard drives per 1U node. InfiniBand connects the cluster and available storage nodes.

“Molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, and bioinformatics applications are particularly well suited for massive parallelism. NVIDIA’s BioWorkbench ensures these applications are coded for such extensively multi-threaded execution. With speedups well over 10x on many applications, scientists can leverage Tesla GPUs to achieve smaller footprints and increased computational power. Microway’s Tesla-based nodes are the ideal foundation for this accelerated research. ” commented Stephen Fried, Microway’s President and CTO.

Microway also offers several rack mounted and desktop Tesla solutions. Tesla S1070/S2070 servers and 1U racks with dual CPUs and dual GPUs are available.

Microway’s Tesla solutions for life sciences are delivered fully integrated with CUDA SDK and Linux or Windows. Clusters feature advanced manageability features that have been refined over years of development and hundreds of real-world cluster deployments. Microway’s Cluster Management System (MCMS™) hardware/software solution features NodeWatch™ for remote cluster monitoring and management. InfiniScope and MPI Link-Checker are unique solutions for debugging and testing InfiniBand network integrity and MPI application performance.
