Silicon Graphics introduces NVIDIA Tesla K20 family of GPU accelerators

Dec 04, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Silicon Graphics International Corp., an American manufacturer of computer hardware and software, has announced the availability of NVIDIA Tesla K20 family of GPU accelerators in fully managed and integrated solutions across its entire server product line.

According to the company, the NVIDIA Tesla K20X GPU accelerator can speed up applications by up to 10X1 when paired with CPUs. It features the new GK110 GPU with 2,688 cores, 3.95 teraflops single-precision and 1.31 teraflops double-precision peak processing capability, 6 GB of on-board memory, and a memory bandwidth of 250 GB/s. The Tesla K20 accelerator delivers more than 3.52 teraflops of single-precision and 1.17 teraflops of double-precision peak performance.

Both accelerators are powered by NVIDIA CUDA, the parallel computing platform and programming model, and take advantage of new technologies like Dynamic Parallelism and Hyper-Q to boost performance and power efficiency, the company said.

SGI's GPU accelerator solutions are offered on the platforms include SGI UV 2000, the 'Big Brain Computer,' with up to 4,096 cores and 64 TB of coherent main memory for in-memory GPU computing in the single image system, SGI UV 20, the power packed small sibling of the SGI UV 2000, ideal for development or remote office solutions, with greater than 2.5 Teraflops of compute, 1.5 TB of memory, 4 PCIe gen 3 slots and two internal I/O modules, all in a 2U package with four Intel Xeon E5-4600 processors and two NVIDIA Tesla K20 accelerators, SGI Rackable twin-socket Intel Xeon servers tailored to meet your exact specifications for high-density, high GPU to CPU ratios, high I/O or high memory and SGI ICE X, the new edition of SGI's high performance computing scale-out blade server with GPU additions via service nodes.

"With the assistance of NVIDIA and the Kepler GPU accelerators, the Swinburne supercomputers from SGI have proven to be excellent research tools in areas of astronomy, ranging from simulations of the dynamical evolution of the universe to the processing of data collected from radio telescopes," said Dr Jarrod Hurley, manager of Swinburne University's supercomputer.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
