Bull, a leading supplier of high performance computing (HPC) technologies, is partnering with NVIDIA to provide the Tesla™ S1070 GPU Computing System as the accelerator option for their HPC solutions. With this announcement, HPC customers in Europe can now get integrated solutions and services from Bull that combine Tesla GPU Computing solutions with Bull’s range of other products for HPC.
“NVIDIA’s Tesla parallel GPU technology is truly disruptive, delivering performance increases that are transforming industries,” said Fabio Gallo, vice-president and director of HPC Solutions at Bull. “The Tesla S1070 is a world-class solution for HPC users wanting to handle large datasets and solve complex problems fast.”
In addition, Bull has assembled a team of technical experts to work with customers and optimize their Tesla based solutions to deliver best performance for their given workload. This team is also able to provide training and other services as an integral part of a full service solution.
GENCI - the French national High-Performance Computing Agency - together with CEA - the French Atomic Energy Authority - is one of the many organizations utilizing the massive parallel processing power of NVIDIA Tesla in a large scale supercomputing project. Built and installed by Bull, the NovaScale® supercomputer takes the available power at the scientific computing complex in Bruyères le Châtel (in the Île de France region) to more than 300 Teraflops, making it one of the most powerful hybrid supercomputer in Europe.
The Tesla S1070 1U system is based on the NVIDIA® CUDA™ parallel architecture. This architecture is accessible through an industry standard C language programming environment that allows developers and researchers to tap into the parallel architecture of the GPU more quickly and easily than any other solution shipping today.
