Following its agreement with Cray Research last year to forge a software link – the VAX Supercomputer Gateway – between the VAX and Cray’s supercomputers, DEC yesterday announced what it describes as the industry’s first software designed specifically to help programmers write applications for Cray machines. Combined with a VAX, a Cray and third party software, the new VAX Software Development Environment/Science Integration Package is designed to make it easier for scientists and engineers to develop applications for applications from seismic analysis, through high energy physics, weather forecasting and molecular modelling. Developed at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center consortium of the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and Westinghouse Electric Corp, and funded by the US National Science Foundation, the VAX SDE/Science package provides programming templates, and enables them to use two powerful VAX software development tools extended for the Cray environment. There are utilities to simplify integration of third-party scientific subroutine libraries into Cray programs, and interfaces for Cray communications software. The new VAX SDE/Science software is bundled with services package that goes from evaluation of site readiness to user training. It’s $15,503 including service from first quarter 1989.
