Just getting back from a great sales conference for Cavium, a world-leading provider of integrated semiconductor processors. It was in a great location, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was a unique opportunity for us to discuss support for the ARM v8 processors in TotalView for HPC and CodeDynamics.
Overall, the excitement around ARMv8 and Cavium’s new ThunderX board was noticeable. ARM really has the opportunity to be a game changer and capture a good size share of the 64-bit processor market pretty quickly. A key thing they need are tools to support this growth in the complexity and size of applications as they go from supporting mostly embedded platforms to high performance computing (HPC) and servers.
This is why we recently ported our tools to ARM, to support the debugging and memory analysis of these very complex systems. We are excited to be offering this and many other updates in our new version of TotalView for HPC.
Please come see us at the ARM HPC User Group meeting and in booth #2425 at the SC16 conference, occurring next week in Salt Lake City, Utah. You also don’t want to miss our expert panel, including NVIDIA, NERSC, RWTH Aachen University, and others discussing “Debugging and performance analysis on native and offload HPC architectures.” You can click here for the full abstract.
