I'm the science (aka my first publication)

In these last days my first paper had been published. The title of the paper is “A GPGPU Transparent Virtualization Component for High Performance Computing Clouds”. It’s an article about gVirtuS: the implementation, the usage and a comparison with other software that aim to accomplish to do the same job (seriously in the real world there isn’t any competitor).

I wrote this article with the staff of the Applied High-Performance Scientific Computing Research Laboratory of the “Department of Applied Science” (DSA)University of Napoli “Parthenope”. This work was presented at Euro-Par 2010.

For the occasion I’ve added a new page to my website to collect my Publications (yes, I hope that I’ll write some other papers).

gVirtuS: the first beta release

We are proud to announce the first beta release of gVirtuS.

gVirtuS allows an instanced virtual machine to access GPGPUs in a transparent way, with an overhead  slightly greater than a real machine/GPGPU setup. gVirtuS is hypervisor independent, and, even though it currently virtualizes nVIDIA CUDA based GPUs.

The software, developed for research applications, is provided as it is.

We encourage using and testing it in order to collect useful feedbacks and suggestions.
