Sun HPC Software, Developer Edition 1.0 for OpenSolaris

Just couple days ago, Sun announced the Sun HPC Software, Developer Edition 1.0 for OpenSolaris. It's a fully-featured HPC development environment that is distributed as a virtual machine (VM). It is based on OpenSolaris 2009.06 and includes pre-configured:

  • Sun Grid Engine 6.2u3
  • Sun HPC ClusterTools 8.1
  • Sun Studio 12u1
  • Sun Studio IDE Plugins
  • Examples of DTrace and performance analysis
  • Accounting and Reporting Console (ARCo)

The compelling feature for HPC developers is that this VM can add cluster resources from Amazon EC2 when local simulated 3-node cluster is insufficient. See the architecture diagram here.

If you wish to give it a try on VirtualBox rather than on VMware follow this blog post.
