Dec. 16, 2009 — NVIDIA Corporation, the world leader in Visual Computing initiatives and NeST, a premier provider of specialized Software and Engineering services announced the setting up of their Centre for GPU Computing at the NeST premises in Technopark, Trivandrum. The Center was inaugurated today by Dr. Bill Dally, Chief Scientist, NVIDIA.

NeST has set up the Centre for GPU (graphics processing unit) computing as part of its business focus on High performance Computing (HPC). This Centre, equipped with the latest products from NVIDIA, is staffed by highly qualified and experienced engineers from NeST to develop High Performance Computing solutions for their customers. NeST will be providing CUDA Professional Services and GPU Computing Multi-core services to their joint customers worldwide. NeST has also declared its plans to offer training services on the NVIDIACUDA architecture. R&D organizations as well as Academic institutions can avail the capabilities of this centre.

CUDA, NVIDIA’s parallel computing architecture, accessible through an industry standard C language programming environment, has already delivered cost-effective multi gigaFLOP performance and revolutionized visual computing across industry domains. NeST’s Multicore Services Group will help harness the power of new generation GPUs from NVIDIA to deliver low-cost, fast-to-market products for their customers in the healthcare, security and consumer electronics domain.

“It is completely clear that GPUs are now general purpose parallel computing processors with amazing graphics, and not just graphics chips any more,” said Bernhard Gleissner, NVIDIA Vice President of Sales for EMEA and India. “CUDA helps the GPU achieve great computational efficiency and many companies globally have already recognised this in their adoption of the CUDA architecture. With the launch of the NeST Centre for GPU Computing the benefits of the parallel computing prowess of GPUs can be reaped by many more Indian and global organizations.” 

“With the establishment of this Centre, NeST has acquired a key technology to provide GPU based solutions to the compute intensive problems of our customers” stated Mr. N Jehangir, Vice Chairman & MD, NeST Group. “The massively parallel floating point processors in the NVIDIA GPU architecture, delivers exceptional throughput to meet the demanding compute requirements of applications like medical imaging, industrial inspection, multimedia, modeling and simulation” said Mr. S. Sasi Kumar, President, NeST Software.
