    PGI compilers for the Rocks Cluster Distribution
    Posted by Ken Farmer, Wednesday July 25 2007 @ 01:35PM EDT

    San Jose, CA, July 24, 2007 - Clustercorp, the leader in commercial software and support for the RocksTM cluster distribution, announced availability of PGI® compilers and tools from The Portland Group as part of its Rocks+Rolls program. The PGI Roll is one of the first commercial software solutions supported on the open-source Rocks 4.3 software stack. PGI compilers produce highly optimized parallel code for 64-bit multi-core processors from Intel and AMD. In addition, PGI tools include features specifically targeted for Linux clusters. Clustercorp developed the PGI Roll in collaboration with The Portland Group as part of a continuing commitment to support the Rocks community.

    “Rocks has helped Linux clusters become more accessible to a growing audience,” said Douglas Miles, director, The Portland Group. “The PGI Roll for Rocks greatly simplifies the installation and upgrading of PGI optimizing compilers and tools for the Rocks user community. The Portland Group remains committed to an overall strategy to support the HPC community in a comprehensive way.”

    The PGI Roll includes Fortran, C, and C++ compilers and development tools. They are recognized in the HPC community for delivering world-class performance across a wide spectrum of applications and benchmarks and are regularly referenced as the industry standard for performance and reliability. All PGI compilers and tools feature full native support for OpenMP parallel programming extensions; full support for 64- bit addressing; native integrated scalar and vector SSE/SSE2/SSE3 code generation; and a bundled version of the ACML, a library of highly optimized numeric functions for mathematical, engineering, scientific, and financial applications.

    “With Rocks’ current position as the dominant Linux-based cluster solution, it is advantageous for ISVs to make their software packages readily available in Roll format. The Portland Group has long been an industry leader in this area. We are pleased to announce the PGI Roll as the first commercial software packaged for the recently released Rocks 4.3,” said Tim McIntire, President, Clustercorp.

    The PGI Roll is freely available to download from Clustercorp.com and is fully supported in Rocks+. Rocks+ adds two critical components necessary for deploying Rocks as an enterprise-class solution:

    Rocks+Support - Rocks+Support addresses the biggest problem in using an open source solution such as Rocks – “the support gap.” While community support for active open source projects like Rocks is a great start, a complex, high-value deployment such as an HPC Cluster requires the formal backing of an experienced support team. Clustercorp was founded by the core members of the Rocks community to serve this purpose.

    Rocks+Rolls - The second obstacle to a successful cluster deployment commonly arises shortly after cluster delivery, when system administrators begin the burdensome process of application installation and configuration across their new cluster. Rocks uses a powerful paradigm called “Rolls,” which automate the installation of software across a cluster and prevent software skew. Clustercorp is focused on the Rocks applications layer, bringing many popular 3rd party software packages into the Rocks software stack.

    "We are delighted to see Clustercorp and Portland Group working together to make one of the leading commercial Linux compiler suites available as a Rocks Roll, " said Philip Papadopoulos, PhD, head of the Rocks project at the University of California, San Diego. "Clustercorp Founders have been contributors to the Rocks Community for several years and understand how their customers need to mix both open source and commercial software to build robust solutions. Providing software as an automatically configured Rocks roll has a very large and beneficial impact for all Rocks users in terms of ease of use and overall system reliability."

    About Clustercorp

    Clustercorp, a privately held corporation based in San Jose, California, was founded by core members of the Rocks community who saw a need for commercial software, services, and support for the Rocks cluster distribution. Clustercorp’s primary product line is a commercial version of Rocks called "Rocks+", which includes "Rocks+Support" and "Rocks+Rolls". Additionally, in 2007, Clustercorp launched its Scientific Computing group, which brings traditional scientists together with experts in HPC to provide users top notch applications level services. More information can be found at http://www.clustercorp.com or by calling (408) 694-3564.

    This product includes software developed by the Rocks Cluster Group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego and its contributors.
