Allinea’s debugging tools to play key role at new Saudi Arabian supercomputing facility
Tools from Allinea Software - (www.allinea.com) – the industry leader in parallel software tools for High Performance Computing (HPC), will play a key role in the development of software at a new supercomputing facility at the aeronautical engineering department, King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Saudi Arabia that will extend research capabilities in topics such as turbulent flow modelling.
KAU who have advanced facilities encompassing a broad range of research areas, are an established leading institution of higher education in Saudi Arabia, with over eighty-two thousand students.
Allinea DDT with CUDA and Allinea OPT software, which enables users to debug code running on the GPU in addition to the CPU, and perform comprehensive analysis for complex codes respectively, will run on a 4300 cores IBM system installed at the facility.
Ibraheem Al-Qadi, Assistant Professor at KAU commented: “For our new HPC facility, we required debugging and optimization software that would allow us to work more efficiently in accomplishing our goal to carry out advanced turbulent flow simulations. The impressive scalability, support for GPU and intuitive user interfaces would enable us to achieve this, and as such, these were the deciding factors for choosing Allinea DDT with CUDA and Allinea OPT products.”
Jacques Philouze, Worldwide VP of Sales and Marketing at Allinea Software, commented: “We are delighted that King Abdulaziz University have decided to use Allinea Software for their development. Allinea focuses on empowering developers with tools that can debug quickly and easily, as well as offering tremendous scalability. The acquisition of Allinea DDT with CUDA and Allinea OPT tools will contribute greatly to computational fluid dynamics research at the university. We are also proud to announce that this deal with KAU marks our first partnership with a client in Saudi Arabia.”
