    Critical Software announces WMPI II Linux
    Monday January 26 2004 @ 06:27PM EST

    Critical Software announces WMPI II Linux - The MPI-2 standard middleware is now available for a large number of Linux and Windows platforms.

    Critical Software Inc, San Jose, CA, and Coimbra, Portugal, announces that its leading MPI-2 middleware product - WMPI II - now provides support for a wide range of Linux platforms.

    In 2003, WMPI II was the first MPI-2 implementation for Microsoft Windows to be commercially available in the market. Today, with the release of WMPI II Linux for a wide range of Linux platforms, Critical Software has become the provider of the most comprehensive MPI-2 offering in the market, spanning both reference platforms. WMPI II now supports a large number of Linux distributions including versions from Red Hat, SuSE, Mandrake, Turbolinux, Debian, Slackware and Gentoo, as well as Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003 Server. Furthermore, Linux and Windows nodes can interoperate transparently using WMP II.

    Some key features of WMPI II are:
    · Full MPI-2 Standard Compliant
    · Heterogeneous Cluster Support
    · Thread-safe, OpenMPT Ready
    · Internally Multithreaded, No Polling
    · Extensive C++ & Fortran Compiler Support
    · Remote distributed Installation and Automatic Configuration

    WMPI II is the high-end of Critical Software's suite of middleware products for HPC, which already include WMPI (based on version 1.2 of the standard) and Patent MPI. These products have achieved high recognition among the HPC community in the past and are being used by a wealth of customers in the telecom, defense, aeronautics, finance, automotive, and energy industries. Companies where Critical Software middleware runs include Deutsche Telekom, IBM, Landmark Graphics, British Aerospace, Chevron-Texaco, Hitachi, BP Amoco, among many others. Critical MPI middleware has been also adopted by a large number of OEM's and ISV's providing cluster-enabled specific applications for the sectors above.

    "The comprehensive support for Linux was the missing piece in our middleware offer. This is why this release pushes our product portfolio a leap forward and turns Critical Software into the only vendor with a compatible and fully-featured MPI-2 implementation, simultaneously for Windows and Linux", Délio Almeida, Marketing and Sales Manager, said.

    Critical Software is providing a trial version of the software in its web site at http://www.criticalsoftware.com/HPC. The trial provides a full-featured version WMPI II, limited to 4 CPUs and 40 days.

    WMPI II supports both TCP/IP and shared memory devices. The company also provides a wide range of support, consulting, and training services for WMPI II.
