Sun Studio is now in the Rocks roll both for Solaris and Linux. You will find Sun Studio 12 update 1, Sun ClusterTools and Sun Grid Engine in the Linux roll here at: http://www.rocksclusters.org/wordpress/?page_id=107 and for Solaris roll here at: http://www.rocksclusters.org/wordpress/?page_id=108 . Bringing Sun Studio to Rocks makes it more readily available for Cluster development, primarily in research organization.
If you arent familiar with the Rocks distribution, it is basically an open-source Linux cluster distribution that enables end users to easily build computational clusters, grid endpoints and visualization tiled-display walls. Rocks is used by researchers to create their own clusters. You can get more information about Rocks here at their site (here).
Sun will be in SuperComputing 09, highlighting Flash technology and many other future technologies its working on. Come join Sun at Birds of a Feather session and at the Whisper Suite . For more info, follow this link.
