The Absoft High Performance Computing Software Development Kit (HPC SDK) for Linux on Power is the premier Software Develpers’ Kit for building and running High Performance Computing Applications on IBM Linux on Power™. Absoft’s HPC SDK consists of pre-configured tools that help you immediately to Compile, Debug, Run, and Optimize High Performance Computing Applications.
Included with the tool kit are the high performance IBM XL Fortran and XL C/C++ Advanced Edition compilers for IBM Linux on Power™, Absoft’s highly optimizing Fortran 95 compiler for IBM Linux on Power™, the industry leading Fx2™ Debugging Solution, IBM highly optimized Engineering and Scientific Subroutine Library (ESSL), the Absoft Modules Environment, the Absoft Common Installer, VAX/Unix libraries, graphics and free technical support. Absoft provides a single solution that runs everywhere, ideal for those who maintain code in multiple environments. Absoft Fortran 95 for LoP is a native LSB compliant 64-bit compiler which generates both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. Also included is a comprehensive suite of prebuilt libraries and options for an automatic parallelizing pre-processor, automatic VMX vector support, and OpenMP are available options. The HPC SDK includes everything developers need to build and run High Performance Computing Applications on IBM Linux on Power™ clusters in a single integrated package.
The new High Performance Computing Software Development Kit (HPC SDK) overcomes the barriers of HPC Software Development, making it possible to extend the benefits of clustered computing to individuals and small departments. The HPC SDK is offered with IBM’s packaged rack-optimized servers and blades in a variety of packaged, pre-tested clustered configurations.
The HPC SDK combines all the ‘Best of Breed’ software components necessary to compile, debug, run and optimize HPC software and establishes Absoft Corporation as the single point of contact and follow-up questions and support needs. Available exclusively from Absoft and IBM, the HPC SDK includes compilers, debuggers, message passing libraries, numerical libraries, an intelligent installer, an uninstaller and an environment configuration module from IBM, Absoft, and open sources. The Absoft Module Environment allows additional tools to be easily installed and configured as customer development needs change.
The HPC SDK is a complete High Performance Computing Software Development environment that is easy to install, simple to use, and incorporates the most powerful, best-of-breed HPC development tools available. The new Absoft HPC SDK will be available for all configurations of IBM Linux on Power clusters and servers running Red Hat’s RHEL 3 or SuSE’s SLES 9. The HPC SDK comes with a common installer and a common license manager available exclusively from Absoft.
