GPU Technology Conference 2010, SAN JOSE, USA: NextIO, the premier provider of next-generation I/O consolidation solutions, announced the vCORE Express product line.
vCORE Express is the first 1U expansion system to support the NVIDIA Tesla M2070 GPUs. NextIO will officially launch vCORE Express at the 2010 GPU Technical Conference, September 20–23 in San Jose, Calif., Booth #63.
“vCORE Express is a compatible upgrade to current Tesla S-Class systems,” said Andy Keane, general manager of the Tesla business, NVIDIA. “NextIO’s new systems provide a modular system architecture for centers deploying Fermi-architecture GPUs with 6GB of dedicated compute memory per GPU.”
“Our goal has always been to deliver the highest performance I/O solutions to our customers, and through vCORE Express, our customers now have access to the highest-performing GPU expansion solution in the industry,” said K.C. Murphy, president and CEO, NextIO.
NextIO’s vCORE product family offers NVIDIA’s record-setting GPUs for both compute-intensive and data visualization requirements. vCORE Express enhances NextIO’s GPU consolidation product portfolio by introducing a simple yet extremely powerful solution for workstation and small cluster compute applications.
Ideally suited for customers with a low number of job counts, low to medium GPU counts, or a combination of both, vCORE Express enables enterprise customers to easily deploy and seamlessly manage a consolidated GPU solution in a rack environment.
vCORE Express is designed especially for parallel computing applications using NVIDIA Tesla 20-Series GPUs in cluster and datacenter deployments. With four massively parallel CUDA-enabled GPUs in a 1U system, vCORE Express brings economies of scale to GPU customers by delivering the same performance of a traditional CPU-based cluster—all at 10 percent of the cost and five percent of the power consumption.
