London, UK -- 27 Jan 2009
leading high efficiency technical and scientific computing software
developer announced it will integrate OptimaNumerics Libraries with HP
Mathematical Software Library (HP MLIB) to develop future versions of
OptimaNumerics high performance numerical libraries.
The integrated product, tentatively called OptimaNumerics MLIB, will be
made available to all customers in need of numerical libraries.
High performance computer users will be able to achieve increase in
productivity, lower cost of computation, perform more complex and
higher resolution modeling and simulation, taking advantage of top
performing mathematical libraries incorporating OptimaNumerics and HP
"This is a great opportunity for OptimaNumerics to work together with
HP, to bring to customers a highly efficient set of numerical tools
incorporating advanced features of HP MLIB and portable scalable high
performance of OptimaNumerics Libraries," said Dr Kenneth Tan, Founder
and CEO of OptimaNumerics.
“Application developers utilizing complex mathematical software, are
looking for ways to speed up the application development process and
improve time to market,” said Betty Van Houten, software development
section manager, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure at HP. “The
comprehensive collection of mathematical libraries offered by the HP
MLIB, coupled with scalability of OptimaNumerics technologies, will
deliver the highest performance possible on heterogeneous platforms to
significantly reduce software development times.”
OptimaNumerics' innovative technologies have consistently delivered
superior performance and portability across an unrivalled range of
platforms including: the AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon, NVIDIA Tesla, Intel
Itanium 2 and SPARC processor families, plus platforms from other
vendors, running Linux, Solaris 10 and Microsoft Windows CCS.
The financial terms of this agreement remain undisclosed.
