HPCwire Brings You an Exclusive Podcast Interview with Ben Bennett of ClearSpeed Technology

Today, HPC organizations are requiring substantially more floating point performance to solve real-world problems. In this podcast, Ben Bennett, ClearSpeed General Manager, discusses how acceleration technology can improve the overall performance of standard x86-based systems by inserting add-on accelerator cards to run the most computationally-intensive code. The resulting accelerated system has the ability to run more jobs simultaneously, address larger problems with the same resources and complete large problems faster.

Development on ClearSpeed is made easier through a familiar programming environment and the ClearSpeed Visual Profiler, which provides very detailed real time code analysis on the x86 host and through to the individual ClearSpeed Accelerators. It allows users to tune individual areas for performance, profile again and then solve the next issue, providing the steps for fully optimized applications. Join Ben Bennett to learn more about ClearSpeed's software approach with it's unique, easy to program software tools.
