Latest Scyld ClusterWare Release 4.2, Penguin Computing's industry-leading, fully integrated suite of provisioning, management, and performance tools for Linux HPC clusters, available for download and evaluation with full functionality.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6 -- Penguin Computing today has announced that its latest release of its comprehensive high performance computing (HPC) cluster management solution, Scyld ClusterWare 4.2, is now available for immediate download and a free, 45-day trial. This is a fully functional version that can be run on as many nodes as the user desires. Making Scyld available as a free download for real-world evaluation is a first for Penguin Computing, initiated in direct response to market demand.
"We've had many requests from HPC cluster users to load Scyld for a thorough, hands-on look at this powerful management environment. Often we hear that they want to see what all of the 'buzz' is about regarding Scyld; we've now enabled the HPC clustering community to do just that. We are very aware of what happens when cluster users experience first-hand the significant advantages of a Scyld environment," said Charles Wuischpard, president and CEO of Penguin Computing.
Those wishing to avail themselves of this free evaluation will find it readily accessible at www.penguincomputing.com. Scyld ClusterWare is a sophisticated set of fully integrated cluster management and performance optimization tools that are quite easy to implement and use, enabling HPC cluster users and system managers, no matter their experience level, to enjoy unprecedented productivity and system functionality. All this without a steep learning curve or complex implementation.
The added flexibility and attention to system availability in Scyld ClusterWare 4.2 are unique features in the HPC market and directed at the new generation of enterprise researchers who want to focus more on productivity, less on the complexities of cluster management.
"Scyld ClusterWare 4.2 is furthering our philosophy that clustered computing should not be reserved for a select few; that managing an HPC cluster environment should not be an engineering exercise. Those who take advantage of this free, fully functional evaluation will understand the unique advantages of Scyld immediately," said Andreas Junge, vice president, product development, Penguin Computing.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
