HP, Nvidia Open GPU Technical Center In France

hp_nvidia_technical_centerHP and Nvidia have opened a GPU Technical Centre of Excellence in Grenoble, France. Users can optimize their HPC by carrying out proofs of concept, benchmarks and other testing activities with HP systems based on Nvidia Tesla GPUs. The new center can be  accessed from the HP network or via the internet remotely. 

The compute resources are built around a dedicated HP Converged Infrastructure, with an HP Cluster Platform that includes 10 HP ProLiant SL250s, SL270s and ML350p Gen 8 servers with integrated NVIDIA Tesla GPUs.

Users can interact with large, complex datasets locally via an HP Z820 Workstation or remotely using HP ProLiant WS460c Gen8 Workstation Blades.

The center also hosts Nvidia Grid technology, which shares the GPU across multiple virtual machines, so users can experience high-performance visualization of a workstation from any connected device.
