    PathScale Set to Unveil New Linux Cluster Software Technologies for the AMD Opteron (TM)
    Thursday November 06 2003 @ 03:37PM EST

    PathScale, Inc., developer of innovative software and hardware solutions to accelerate the performance of Linux clusters, has moved into a new facility, increased the size of its development staff and appointed a new chief executive officer. Previously known as Key Research, PathScale will soon introduce a suite of cost-effective, best-of-breed technologies that will add significant value and performance enhancements to users of servers based on Advanced Micro Devices' highly-regarded Opteron (TM) microprocessors.

    Founded in 2001 by seasoned veterans of the high-performance computing industry and funded by prestigious investment firms, PathScale is developing a suite of technologies that enable compute-intensive applications, such as those traditionally targeted for large symmetrical multiprocessors, to be more easily migrated onto low-cost 64-bit Linux clusters. The ultimate benefits of these technologies will include lower total system cost-of-ownership and faster time to more meaningful results.

    In recent weeks, PathScale has completed its moved into a new, larger facility in Sunnyvale, CA, in the heart of Silicon Valley. The company has grown rapidly yet conservatively under the leadership of its chairman and CTO Thomas M. McWilliams, PhD, formerly founder of Valid Logic (since acquired by Cadence) and Key Computer (acquired by Amdahl), and a winner of the IEEE McDowell Award for the development of SCALD, the technical foundation of the CAE industry.

    The company has announced the appointment of seasoned computer industry executive Scott Metcalf as president and CEO. Previously, Metcalf was CEO of Digitivity, HAL Computer Systems and Dynabook Computers. Prior to that he served as an operations director at Sun Microsystems.

    "Scott Metcalf has a proven track record of maximizing the value of the companies he leads to the benefit of customers, partners, investors and employees," said Thomas McWilliams, PhD, chairman and CTO of PathScale. "PathScale's mission is to deliver the essential technologies needed to accelerate the adoption and ensure the success of the new clustered computing paradigm. Scott's broad range of industry experience will be a huge benefit to PathScale in delivering on its mission."

    PathScale's initial product suite will be publicly unveiled on November 18, 2003 at the SC2003 Super Computing Conference and Showcase (www.sc-conference.org/sc2003) in Phoenix, Arizona, the premier annual event for high-performance computing solutions, sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE) and the Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture.

    About PathScale

    Based in Sunnyvale, California, PathScale develops innovative technologies that substantially increase the performance and efficiency of Linux clusters, the next significant wave in high-end computing.
