The rCUDA technology has been presented at #ISC14. On the one hand, a talk titled "Increasing the efficiency of your GPU-enabled cluster with rCUDA" was given by Federico Silla at the HPC Advisory Council European Conference 2014, on June 22nd. On the other hand, two different live demos comparing the performance of CUDA and rCUDA on real time were concurrently running at the Mellanox Technologies booth.
rCUDA was presented last week at Lugano (Switzerland) in the HPC Advisory Council Conference that took place from 31st March to 3rd April. In addition to the presentation, a hands on session about rCUDA was also provided. You can additionally find the videos of the presentation and hands on session here.
The rCUDA Team is pleased to announce the release of the new rCUDA 4.1 version. In addition to fix some bugs related with asynchronous memory transfers, the new release provides support for:
-CUDA 5.5 Runtime API
-Mellanox Connect-IB network adapters
-cuFFT and cuBLAS libraries
Paper on the use of remote GPU virtualization mechanisms along with low-power processors presented at the Fourth ENERGY Conference
The rCUDA team is glad to announce that its last research results were presented at the Fourth ENERGY Conference celebrated in Chamonix (France). The presented paper, titled "On the Use of Remote GPUs and Low-Power Processors for the Acceleration of Scientific Applications", showed the possibilities that remote GPU virtualization technologies offer when used with low-power processors. The paper was awarded with the Best Paper Award.
