    Absoft Announces Upgrades to HPC SDK for Linux On POWER
    Thursday April 28 2005 @ 02:37PM EDT

    Absoft Announces Upgrades to High Performance Computing Software Developer Kit for Linux On POWER™ Including Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4 - Absoft Corporation today announced a new release of its High Performance Computing (HPC) Software Developers Kit (SDK) Basic Edition for Linux On POWER™. Version 1.1 of the SDK has been updated to include support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux v4, the latest compiler releases from IBM, new Absoft compilers (version 9.0 enhanced package), new Fx2 Debugger (enhanced package), new Modules Environment, ESSL math, science, and engineering libraries from IBM with new enhancements for POWER™, and an improved LAM/MPI 7.1.2 message passing library with additional 64-bit support with Absoft compilers. Also included is new support for pre-built MPICH2 from Absoft.

    The HPC SDK includes software tools developers need to build, debug, run and optimize high-performance computing applications. The HPC SDK for Linux on POWER™ includes tools from Absoft, open source providers, IBM and other manufacturers.

    Easy to install, simple-to-use and incorporating the most powerful best-of-breed high performance computing development tools available, the new Absoft HPC SDK Basic Edition v1.1 is available for all configurations of IBM Linux on POWER™ clusters and servers running RedHat’s RHEL 3, RHEL 4 or SuSE SLES9. The new HPC SDK v1.1 overcomes barriers of HPC software development, making it possible to extend the benefits of clustered computing from large organizations 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 latest Absoft Modules Environment facilitates switching between 32-bit and 64-bit environments and now includes new command auto-completion features saving developers time and preventing mistakes. Additional modules are included that automatically add recommended optimization flags for serial code users. Also, additional new code examples are included allowing customers to quickly get serial applications running in parallel using the HPC SDK on their cluster or HPC server.

    The SDK includes high performance IBM XL Fortran and XL C/C++ Advanced Edition compilers for IBM Linux on POWER™, Absoft’s Fortran 95 cross-platform compiler for IBM Linux on Power™ for migrating applications and unsurpassed legacy support, the industry leading Fx2™ Debugging Solution, IBM’s optimized Engineering and Scientific Subroutine Library (ESSL), IBM’s MASS library of tuned mathematical intrinsic functions, the Absoft Modules Environment, the Absoft Common Installer, VAX/Unix and graphical libraries, and free technical support.

    "This release further simplifies the install process and provides more features and functionality for our customers," said Wood Lotz, president of Absoft Corporation. "Everything necessary to compile, run, debug and optimize high performance code is provided preconfigured on one CD and Absoft handles all questions and support."

    Absoft provides a single solution that runs with different Linux on POWER™ distributions, ideal for those who maintain code in multiple environments. The HPC SDK includes a common installer, a common license manager and other tools available exclusively from Absoft. The Absoft Common Installer lets customers quickly install and configure all the tools on HPC servers and clusters to start developing and running applications within minutes. The Common License Manager allows Absoft to provide all of the included commercial applications with new Floating Network Licensing available exclusively from Absoft, greatly simplifying license procurement and management for the tools in environments where computing resources are shared.

    "The HPC SDK allows you to start productive HPC development on your cluster within 5 minutes of inserting the CD" said Rod Mach, Technical Director for High Performance Computing at Absoft. "The HPC SDK is the Swiss army knife of HPC development" Mach continued.
