To prepare a big week of Solaris and HPC big announcements, why not spend your Sunday afternoon browsing this
new Sun BluePrint
on the use of Sun Grid Engine (SGE) to schedule jobs and manage compute resources on Tokyo Institude of Technology's Tsubame supercomputer. In the last year, SGE has managed well over 1 million compute jobs on the Tsubame cluster. Then you can try out the latest
Sun Grid Engine 6.1
for yourself. New in SGE 6.1 is a Solaris DTrace provider to help diagnose bottlenecks as well as a host of other new features. SGE does run on a number of other OSes besides Solaris, but sorry, the DTRace provider only works on Solaris. For a limited time, Sun is also offering 30 days of no cost support, via email, for customers who download and register SGE 6.1. Try it out today.
If you thought I was going to pre-announce anything we have planned for this week, sorry, even my blog readers will have to wait like everyone else to see what is in the box.
