Peer 1 Launches HPC Cloud Based On GPUs

David Chernicoff writes that Peer 1 Hosting in the U.K. has launched an HPC Cloud service based on Nvidia Tesla GPUs:

Programming for the Tesla machines and their Fermi processors can be done using the well-documented CUDA programming environment which probably supports the programming language you are already using for internal development, meaning that you have programmers with the skills to get you up and running in the supercomputing world already at hand.

Peer 1 is offering free trial access to their cloud, so now may be the time to explore the benefits of GPU-based supercomputing.
