Expanding the scope of its HPC software solutions, Sun announced the release and immediate availability of Sun HPC ClusterTools 8.0.
Sun HPC ClusterTools 8.0 is a high-performance production quality MPI (Message Passing Interface) implementation based on the Open MPI 1.3 open source project, and with the release of HPC ClusterTools 8.0, Sun now supports Linux distributions as well as Solaris and OpenSolaris OSs. With growth of HPC systems outpacing traditional IT due to the rapid expansion of modeling and simulation in research projects and product innovation, Sun continues to successfully build out some of the largest
installations in the world, like the Texas Advanced Computing Cluster (TACC), and also deliver complete HPC hardware, software, and services solutions for customers. In addition to Intel x86, AMD x86, and Sun UltraSPARC-based servers, Sun now offers complete software stack offerings on both Linux and Solaris OSs, with all the innovations of OpenSolaris now available to the HPC community.
For developers, Sun HPC ClusterTools 8.0 works with both Sun Studio and GNU/gcc-based toolchains on Solaris, OpenSolaris, and Linux OSs. With Sun Studio software that includes optimizing C, C++, and Fortran compilers, support for OpenMP, optimized math and performance libraries, and performance analysis
tools, developers have an advanced integrated solution optimized for the performance and productivity requirements of HPC applications. From the Lustre cluster filesystem, to Sun Grid Engine resource management software, to Sun HPC ClusterTools -- Sun is a leader in HPC software.
