of thousands of users, companies and learning institutions, as well as independent soſtware vendors. From multicore workstations to the latest

supercomputers, NAG’s robust soſtware development products, parallel soſtware engineering services, independent technology consulting and HPC training can support modelling and computing needs. At SC’12, NAG will show how routines from the NAG Library, running on various platforms including the latest co-processors, can improve applications in many areas of scientific computing. NAG’s consultants will also be available to help attendees solve their specific numerical computing problems.

Nallatech (#1930) will be showcasing its PCIe-385N network

processing card. Te PCIe-385N low profile network processing card provides a powerful PCI Express Gen 3 computing platform for FPGA development and deployment across a range of application areas, including network monitoring, filtering, analytics, data retention and algorithm acceleration. Te PCIe-385N features two SFP+

connectors supporting 1GbE, 10GbE, SONET/ SDH and OTN via the PCI backplate. Tese network interfaces are directly coupled to an Altera Stratix V FPGA with high bandwidth DDR3 SDRAM memory. Te PCIe-385N is the same form factor as most standard network cards, providing compatibility with almost all high density server and blade centre platforms.

Panasas (#3421) is a premier provider of high-performance parallel storage solutions for technical computing applications and big data workloads. All Panasas scale-out storage appliances leverage the Panasas PanFS parallel file system to deliver superior performance, data protection, scalability and manageability. Te company introduced initial parallel storage products based on its first generation blade architecture in 2004 and will be launching the fiſth generation of ActiveStor technology at SC’12.


RSC Group (#4721), a leading Russian full cycle HPC solution provider, will demonstrate the RSC Tornado at SC’12. RSC Tornado is a cutting-edge, energy-efficient and scalable solution with liquid cooling from 50 Tflops miniDC to large multi-Pflop supercomputers, and a computing efficiency ratio of more than 92 per cent on Linpack. It is a flexible and green design based on widely available standard server motherboards with Intel

Panasas systems are optimised for highly

demanding applications in the four key big data segments: design – facilitating engineering collaboration; deposit – providing secure data warehousing; discover – enabling complex simulations; and decide – powering analytics across a range of disciplines. Visitors to the booth can find out more about ActiveStor 14, the scale-out NAS appliance for big data workloads that is easy to deploy, use and manage.

Rogue Wave Software (#3418) is the largest independent provider of cross-platform soſtware development tools and embedded components for

the next generation of HPC applications. Rogue Wave products reduce the complexity of prototyping, developing, debugging and optimising multi-processor and data-intensive applications. At SC’12, the company will be featuring

TotalView, a highly-scalable debugger that provides troubleshooting for a variety of applications. A GUI-based source code defect analysis tool, TotalView gives developers what Rogue Wave states is unprecedented control

Xeon E5-2690 processors, Intel SSD, high- speed Infiniband FDR interconnects and co-processor support. In addition, RSC BasIS, the company’s HPC soſtware stack, manages clusters in an energy-efficient way, complements proven liquid cooling to deliver a low total cost of ownership (TCO) and more than 60 per cent power savings with an industry-record PUE of less than 1.06.

over processes and thread execution and visibility into program state and variables. It allows developers to debug one or many processes and/or threads with complete control over program execution. TreadSpotter is an advanced and easy-to-

use performance optimisation product for single and multi-threaded applications that helps eliminate performance issues by analysing memory bandwidth and latency, data locality and thread communications/interaction, to pinpoint performance issues. It then guides the developer to the location of the issues in the source code.

Silicon Mechanics (#2423), a leading manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage and high-performance computing hardware, will highlight its new server products and strategic partnerships at SC’12. Silicon Mechanics was the August recipient of the Inc. 500/5000 fastest growing companies, and is proud to sponsor the Massachusetts Green High-Performance Computing Consortium in this year’s Student Cluster Competition. Te company is also looking forward to the announcement of the 2nd annual Research Cluster Grant Competition at SC’12. Silicon Mechanics and its partners, including

Intel, AMD, Nvidia and Supermicro, offer customers a line of products and services that are comprehensive, competitively priced and customisable. Tese include high-performance
