gridMathematica 2.2 and Mathematica Personal Grid Edition Open the Door to New Possibilities in High-Performance Computing
August 9, 2007--Just three months ago, Wolfram Research introduced a
computing revolution with the release of Mathematica 6. Today, that
revolution extends to all modern computing clusters and grids with the
release of gridMathematica 2.2.
Now available, gridMathematica 2.2 capitalizes on all the new
functionality of Mathematica 6 for dynamic interactivity, 2D and 3D
visualization, data integration, and more. The new version also includes
Mathematica's powerful programming primitives for writing and controlling parallel
operations with broad platform support, 64-bit optimizations, and
seamless integration with many cluster management systems.
In addition to over 1,000 new computational functions and interface
enhancements, gridMathematica features:
- Parallelization at the Mathematica language level
- Machine-independent portable code development
- Support for multiprocessor machines, clusters, and grids
- High-performance MathLink communication protocol optimized
for all common configurations
- Efficient, adaptive load balancing
- Improved user-programmable scheduling
- Speculative parallelization for nondeterministic problems
Also updated is Mathematica Personal Grid Edition, the
cost-effective solution for multicore personal supercomputing.
Now based on Mathematica 6, Mathematica Personal Grid Edition
includes all the same features as
gridMathematica but is designed for the desktop environment.
More information, as well as webcasts, training, and free online
seminars, is available from the gridMathematica and Mathematica Personal Grid
