"OptimaNumerics is excited to bring to market OptimaNumerics high
performance numerical libraries to the NVIDIA Tesla GPU platform,"
said Dr Kenneth Tan, founder and CEO of OptimaNumerics.
"OptimaNumerics Libraries for NVIDIA Tesla will remove a key hurdle
for software developers and end users to enable applications to run on
NVIDIA GPUs without having to perform custom programming for standard
With OptimaNumerics Libraries, applications written in high level
languages such as C and Fortran, will be able to transparently access
NVIDIA GPUs. This combination of the high performance of NVIDIA Tesla
GPU platform with OptimaNumerics Libraries will enable software
developers to save development time and costs and enable end users to
dramatically reduce time to computational results.
"NVIDIA is excited to partner with OptimaNumerics to bring
OptimaNumerics Libraries to the high performance computing market with
$6 billion addressable market. OptimaNumerics adds a key part to the
NVIDIA software ecosystem," said Andy Keane, GM of NVIDIA GPU
Computing. "OptimaNumerics unleashes the power of GPU computing for
technical and scientific applications. Existing code and those under
development will benefit likewise."
The highly parallel NVIDIA Tesla GPU with 128 processor cores and a
parallel data cache is a natural fit with OptimaNumerics technologies
which matured on large scale supercomputers and trusted by major
supercomputing and scientific research centers around the world.
OptimaNumerics Libraries, with linear algebra, parallel linear algebra
and parallel random number generators modules, provide high
performance versions of LAPACK, ScaLAPACK, PETSc, SuperLU, PLFG and
OptimaNumerics' innovative technologies have consistently delivered
superior performance and portability across a wide range of platforms
including: the AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon, Intel Itanium 2 and SPARC
processor families, plus platforms from other vendors, running Linux,
Solaris 10 and Microsoft Windows CCS.
