NextIO Demonstrating GPU Consolidation Appliance at ISC

NextIO has announced that they will make the trip to Hamburg this year in order to demo an new product release they have coming down the pipe. The NextIO vCORE GPU Consolidation Appliance is billed as allowing multiple servers [up to eight] to dynamically utilize up to eight double wide graphics cards connected via PCI-Express.

ISC’10 promises to be a great event for NextIO on many levels,” said Mike Lance, Director of Marketing, NextIO. “The opportunity to showcase the world’s first reconfigurable GPU appliance to an HPC-centric audience and the timing of our new product launch lined up perfectly. We look forward to building strong relationships with the HPC community in Europe.”

NextIO will have live demonstrations  of the new vCORE Appliance connected to multiple servers.  The servers will be “hot configured” in various combinations of GPUs per server without requiring reboots.

At ISC’10, NextIO will also be featured as a Forum Session presenter on Tuesday, June 1 at 12:40 p.m. in Hall H, #901. The session titled “Reducing TCO Using Manageable and Scalable GPU Compute” will be given by NextIO executives Mike Heumann, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, and Mike Lance, Director of Product Marketing.

  1. I talked to NextIO back at SC09 and wrote it up here: http://www.vizworld.com/2009/11/nextio-pcie-expandability-virtualization-hot-swap/

    It’s a great system, although they couldn’t do virtualization of Video Cards before, only for MRIOV compliant cards (mainly Network Cards). I wonder if this new system has somehow alleviated that constraint.
