    Dolphin Interconnect Announces Support for the New 64-bit and 32-bit Scyld Beowulf Cluster OS
    Wednesday April 07 2004 @ 11:37AM EDT

    Clinton, MA and Oslo, Norway, April 7, 2004—Dolphin Interconnect announced today that they have support from Scyld Software, a leader in second-generation Beowulf clustering software. Starting with the 29-series release of Scyld Beowulf for the IntelÒ XeonÔ and AMDÒ OpteronÔ platforms. The 29-series significantly reduces the time necessary to develop and deploy a distributed parallel application by providing scientists and application developers with out-of-the-box integrated parallel programming code libraries, a scalable deployment architecture and cluster management interfaces. In addition to 64-bit support, the 29-series includes software code library compatibility and binary compatibility with other market-leading commercial Linux distributions.

    “Scyld is a major and respected player in the Beowulf clustering market and Dolphin Interconnect is committed to offering their customers the widest range of clustering software options,” said Keith Murphy Vice President of Sales for Dolphin Interconnect.

    “High-performance computing applications in life sciences, computational fluid dynamics, integrated circuit design and data warehousing have massive processing, and memory addressing requirements,” said Donald Becker, founder and chief technical officer of Scyld. “The successful deployment of the Opteron and Itanium architectures is driving the migration from 32-bit to 64-bit computing, which significantly expands the class of problems addressable with Beowulf clusters.”

    “Scyld Beowulf leverages the performance advantages of Dolphin SCI technology to create some of the highest cluster performance available,” said Kare Lochsen, Dolphin Interconnect CEO. “With this level of operating system support, Dolphin continues to fulfill its mission with industry leading cluster performance.”

    About Dolphin Interconnect Solutions

    Dolphin Interconnect Solutions of Clinton, Massachusetts (USA) and Oslo, Norway provides high-speed, high-bandwidth interconnect products based on the Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI). The Dolphin interconnect has the unique advantage of enabling a direct link from a processor to remote memory in a multiprocessor system. It can be used directly in all systems with a PCI (or PMC or cPCI) bus or carrier and under a variety of operating systems and processors. The interconnect provides very low overhead communication and extremely low latencies and high throughput, even for communication that requires the transfer of small data packets. Dolphin products are used in a wide variety of embedded applications and to build cost-effective, highly scalable, high-performance clustered computing systems.

    About Scyld Software

    Scyld Software is the developer of Scyld Beowulf, the leading second-generation cluster operating system that significantly improves the scalability and manageability of Beowulf clusters. Second-generation Beowulf technology significantly simplifies the installation and management of Beowulf clusters by only installing the operating system and applications on a designated master node. The cluster can then be managed and operated like a single stand-alone computer. Scyld Software, a subsidiary of Penguin Computing, was founded in 1998 by Donald Becker, a key architect on the original Beowulf team. For more information, please visit Scyld at
