HEWLETT-PACKARD LICENSES WORKSTATION CLUSTERING TOOLS TO IMPROVE EFFICIENCY OF HP APOLLO 9000 SERIES 700

By CBR Staff Writer

Hewlett-Packard Co has started licensing software tools from five vendors to try and make its clustered HP Apollo 9000 Series 700 workstations, running Convex Computer Corp’s cluster and Meta Series software, more efficient and easy-to-use. The Meta Series software integrates Convex minisupercomputers with Hewlett-Packard kit. The new tools are Aggregate Computing Inc’s Netshare Software Developers Kit, which combines resource management with remote execution to distribute work intelligently to the most appropriate computing resources on the network, and NetMake, which divides the compilation of software into pieces and performs the compile in parallel across available machines on the network; Argonne National Laboratory’s Fortran M, which is a pre-processor and run-time system for a small set of extensions to Fortran, designed specifically for parallel programming; Platform Computing Corp’s Load Sharing Facility, a distributed computing system that supports transparent load sharing across heterogeneous Unix machines; and Florida State University’s Supercomputer Computation Research Institute’s Distributed Queuing System, which queues single-machine jobs, multi-node parallel jobs, PVM parallel-processing jobs and interactive sessions across a heterogeneous networked cluster of Unix workstations. The products are out now, but no pricing was available.
