Mitrionics Announces Hybrid Computing Development System Based on HP ProLiant Server

Los Gatos, CA, October 29, 2008 - Mitrionics, Inc., developer of the MitrionTM Virtual Processor and the Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform, today announced its Mitrionics MVP610 Hybrid Computing Server accelerated computing system based on the HP ProLiant DL165 G5 server with single 2.1GHz Quad-Core AMD OpteronTM 2352 central processing unit (CPU). The Single Socket Accelerated Server will include licensing for the Mitrion Virtual Processor (MVP), the XtremeData, Inc.TM XD2000FTM HyperTransportTM socket based accelerator hardware with Altera® StratixTM II, plus the Mitrion Software Development Kit with parallel programming language and working example code. This new MVP610 Hybrid Computing Server integrates hardware with a virtual processor and a complete parallel programming environment in a single off-the-shelf solution

"The world of computation is changing for the better," stated Mike Calise, executive vice president and general manager of Mitrionics, Inc. "The industry has finally arrived at the point where hybrid computing is no longer a million dollar investment. This package is now commercially available, less than $20K, and since we're solving the programming hurdle for FPGAs, I dare say, easy to use."

"More and more companies are looking to increase their competitive advantage by leveraging innovative high performance computing technologies that are becoming more economical and easier to use," said Ed Turkel, manager, Product Marketing, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure, HP. "With the new Mitrionics Hybrid Computing Development System running on HP ProLiant servers, developers canspeed up research and design by easily creating custom circuits tailored for their specific high performance application needs."

"We are starting to see increased adoption of accelerators of all types, and the FPGA offerings from Mitrionics might be particularly compelling for applications such as genome informatics or large-scale internet search," said Addison Snell, VP of Tabor Research. "The fundamental difference for recent FPGA adoption lies in the reduced memory latency handled well by using a socket approach. These emerging, non-traditional application areas represent the highest potential growth in high-performance computing."

Mitrionics Hybrid Computing Development systems are designed for industries, academics, government agencies, genome centers, data services providers, and independent software vendors (ISVs) that are interested in exploring the benefits of breakthrough hybrid computing architectures in practical workstation or server configurations. The applications that benefit from a system with at least two optimized compute processor types are those within genome informatics, internet data processing, and business process optimization, and include the most demanding applications requiring high throughput and low latency. These demanding integer-centric codes benefit from the variable bit-width operations and fine grain parallelism inherent to Altera FPGA-based co-processors coupled with AMD's advanced CPUs inside servers from the world's number one HPC supplier, HP (NYSE: HPQ).

Processor intensive codes previously written for sequential machines continue to experience suboptimal performance levels unless they're modified to exploit the recent direct coupling of CPUs and FPGAs. The system allows users to write accelerated algorithm code for a dedicated MVP data parallel co-processor within a fully integrated XD2000F "In-Socket Accelerator" (ISA) from XtremeData, Inc. This Altera FPGA in the ISA is directly connected to the fastest AMD Opteron CPUs through the high speed HyperTransport link. The servers can be configured to operate standalone, or stacked in a cluster for highly dense green computing. The Mitrionics MVP610 Hybrid Computing Server is scheduled for availability in Q4 2008 with a list price of $19,900 USD.

"Emphasizing industry standards and collaborative innovation helps programmers to create solutions with greater confidence of roadmap longevity and performance," said Doug O'Flaherty, division manager for acceleration strategies at Advanced Micro Devices. "By delivering arobust Mitrion programming environment that taps the outstanding performance-per-watt of AMD Opteron Processors with FPGA acceleration, Mitrionics is paving the way for increased productivity across an expanding set of developers and applications."
