Designed to accelerate demanding applications, such as science and research solutions, ClearSpeed Technology PLC's Advance accelerator family speeds applications without significantly impacting power, cooling or space requirements.
ClearSpeed Advance X620 and e620 Accelerator Boards work in conjunction with industry standard systems based on 32- and 64-bit x86-compatible processors. The boards accelerate the most computationally intensive portions of numerically intensive applications.
The boards come with Linux and Windows drivers, libraries and tools to harness the power of the two ClearSpeed CSX600 co-processors resident on the PCI-X and PCIe boards.
The company's new software and hardware enhancements deliver 20 times the performance per watt compared with industry standard servers when running the high-performance LINPACK Benchmark1.Manage projects like a pro
ProWorkflow is a project management, workflow and time tracking solution from ProActive Software Ltd. It is designed for small to midsize organizations and helps them maintain accurate time-keeping records and organize, plan and delegate jobs and tasks. It also creates a timeline for an overview of an organization's activities.
The information collected by ProWorkflow facilitates measuring and analyzing performance. The Web-based technology allows for remote management. It also lets users organize jobs and assign tasks to employees.
Files can be uploaded to projects with the resources manager function. The task manager allows a list of tasks to be created for each employee, and managers can see activity in real time.
