We are happy to announce next rCUDA updates that will complete the rCUDA 4.0 version. The new features will complete the new rCUDA version, which includes binary compatibility, InfiniBand native support and enhanced data transfers.
In addition to the full binary compatibility feature recently released, the new features are going to be:
- rCUDA 4.0 release with CUDA 5.0 API support (excluding graphics interoperability).
- SLURM scheduler integration with rCUDA.
As we announced at SC12 in Salt Lake City last week, a new rCUDA version (beta) has been released. This version includes full binary compatibility with CUDA applications and the last features, such as InfiniBand support and enhanced data transfers. This version can be obtained for free by filling our software request form.
The rCUDA Team is glad to announce a change in the distribution policy for the next and disruptive rCUDA version. It will include many new functionalities, as well as boosted performance.
This new version, cooked for over a year, will incorporate pipelined transfers, full multi-thread and multi-node capabilities, CUDA 5
support, support for CUDA C extensions, and native InfiniBand support.
The upcoming rCUDA version, successfully demonstrated at the last ISC'12 at Hamburg, Germany, will be released in July.
Although it was previously announced to be released under commercial license here, this new version will supersede the current version and will be distributed for free. Registered rCUDA users will receive the update as usual.
