OptimaNumerics, leader in high performance technical and scientific
computing tools, announced today that it is teaming up with Scalable
Systems Pte Ltd of Singapore to launch OptimaNumerics Libraries in the
Asia Pacific region.
The Scalable Systems team has been building Linux High Performance
Computing Clusters since 1999, and to-date, has deployed more than a
dozen clusters in local universities and R&D laboratories in
OptimaNumerics Libraries, with linear algebra, parallel linear algebra
and parallel random number generators modules, provide high
performance versions of LAPACK, ScaLAPACK, SPRNG and PLFG libraries.
Components of OptimaNumerics Libraries, available for platforms
including Linux x86 and Linux Itanium II, have been tested and proven
to deliver over 13x faster solutions.
OptimaNumerics Libraries are being integrated into Scalable Systems'
cluster management suite, the Scalable Rocks Cluster Toolkit, which
provides a comprehensive Web-based graphical cluster management
console which makes the set-up, maintenance and administration of
clusters easy and quick.
Mr Laurence Liew, CTO of Scalable Systems said, "Scalable Rocks
Cluster Toolkit enables efficient issue solution, maximizes uptime and
utilization of clusters, and minimizes user training, thereby further
reducing total cost of ownership of a cluster."
This integration provides a synergistic advantage to both
OptimaNumerics' and Scalable Systems' customers, enabling right sizing
and better budgeting of of high performance computing resource,
enhances usage rate of hardware investments, and completing their
computational jobs faster with the high performance OptimaNumerics
Libraries, thus lowering total computational cost.
Dr Kenneth Tan, CEO of OptimaNumerics said, "OptimaNumerics is
delighted to team up with Scalable Systems in this crucial and fast
growing Asia Pacific high performance technical and scientific
computing market to market and support OptimaNumerics Libraries.
Scalable Systems' expertise and professional services group is a
highly valuable resource to customers in this region."
