Tesla GPU Clusters

Supercharge your next cluster with Tesla V100, P100 GPUs
Microway NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU Powered High Density Clusters

NVIDIA Elite Solution ProviderMicroway’s preconfigured Tesla GPU clusters deliver supercomputing performance at a lower power, lower cost, and using many fewer systems than standard CPU-only clusters. These clusters are powered by NVIDIA Tesla V100 “Volta” or Tesla P100 GPUs. Tesla GPUs speed the transition to energy-efficient parallel computing and scale to solve the world’s most important computing challenges more quickly and accurately.

Successfully deployed in demanding applications at research institutes, universities, and enterprises, Tesla GPUs power the most powerful supercomputers worldwide.

Installed Software

A Microway Tesla preconfigured cluster comes preinstalled with:

  • Linux distribution of your choice, including Red Hat, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, openSUSE or Gentoo
  • NVIDIA CUDA® Toolkit, Libraries and SDK
  • Bright Cluster Manager, OpenHPC, or Microway Cluster Management Software (MCMS™) integrated with optional MPI Link-Checker™ Fabric Validation Suite
  • User-level application and library installations are available for truly turn-key HPC

GPU Speedups

Applications running CUDA-based code on Tesla GPUs see speedups of up to 250x in domains ranging from MATLAB to computational fluid dynamics, molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, imaging, signal processing and bio-informatics. See NVIDIA’s full list of GPU-accelerated applications.

GPU Software Development Tools

It is easier than ever to harness GPUs in your applications. Many libraries include pre-optimized GPU support; language bindings are available for Python, Java, C#, C, C++, Fortran and more. OpenACC allows a single C/C++/Fortran codebase to be used across GPUs, x86 CPUs, and POWER8 CPUs (much like a GPU-accelerated OpenMP).
