Heidelberg, Germany (June 23, 2004) – Streamline Computing Ltd and Absoft Corporation today announced plans to provide Streamline’s powerful Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) bundled with Absoft’s Multi-language Fx2™ Debugging Solution for
IBM Linux on Power™ systems. The combination of DDT’s intuitive interface for parallel debugging and the comprehensive and feature-rich Fx2 Debugging Solution provides the industry’s most complete debugging solution for Fortran, C/C++ users and large-scale parallel applications.
“Fx2 is the industry’s only cost effective debugging solution compatible with Fortran and C/C++ compilers from all leading vendors. Currently running on IA32 and AMD64 based Linux platforms, we are pleased to offer Fx2 with DDT for IBM POWER4-processor based systems running Linux.”” Stated Wood Lotz, President of Absoft. Fx2 is compatible with compilers from Absoft, gnu, Intel, PathScale, and PGI. The DDT interface from Streamline combined with Fx2 provides the best available debugging solution for parallel environments, from small SMP systems to large clusters. IBM already offers Absoft’s Fortran compilers and Fx2™ multi-language debugging solution to IBM HPC customers worldwide for AMD Opteron™ processor-based IBM eServer 325 and xSeries-based Linux systems. Absoft is also a special OEM
for IBM’s XL Fortran and XL C/C++ compilers. “This new relationship with IBM Linux on Power further broadens our combined solutions for Absoft, IBM, and Streamline customers” continued Lotz.
“We are pleased to be working with leading solution providers like Absoft and Streamline to help provide our mutual customers superior, cost-effective features and capabilities to help enhance their competitiveness,” said Brian Connors, Vice President of IBM Linux on POWER Business.
“We are delighted to be working with Absoft and IBM to provide the best debugging solution for Power platforms,” said Dr. Michael Rudgyard, CEO of Streamline. “DDT has a unique and intuitive interface putting the developer in control of
a parallel application - whether working with small SMP systems or large high-performance clusters. The tool gives users a common interface for every compiler, language and MPI distribution. DDT is in use globally at commercial, government and academic sites, and sets new standards for affordability and simplicity
of use in parallel debugging.”
