Creates a leading commercial vendor of cross-platform, embeddable software libraries
BOULDER, Colo., May 5 -- Rogue Wave Software, Inc., a Battery Ventures portfolio company, today announced that it has acquired Visual Numerics, Inc., a privately-held advanced analytics software company based in Houston, Texas.
For more than three decades, Visual Numerics has provided numerical analysis and visualization software solutions that help users understand complex data from a variety of sources and build business-critical applications.
The company offers two product lines: the IMSL Numerical Libraries for powerful mathematical and statistical analysis and the PV-WAVE visual data analysis development environment. This acquisition complements the Rogue Wave product families of software development tools, components and frameworks by adding industry-leading advanced data analysis and visualization tools. According to IDC the market for advanced analytics tools grew 13 percent in 2007 and usage is expected to become much more pervasive.
"For the past 38 years Visual Numerics has been a leader in advanced analytics. The addition of their rich suite of numerical libraries and data analysis tools, along with an exceptional team enhances Rogue Wave's leadership position in software development components and infrastructure," said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave Software, Inc.
The combination of these technologies with Rogue Wave Hydra and SourcePro C++ products will enable customers to deliver advanced analytics applications in scalable, distributed computing environments. This will enable high-throughput data analysis using lower cost, power-efficient multi- and many-core hardware.
"We believe that the combination of technologies from these two companies will lead to exciting new application possibilities for our customers," said Phil Fraher, CEO of Visual Numerics.
The acquisition adds to the list of Rogue Wave's worldwide clients with a well established business and customer base in North America, Europe and Asia.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
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).

he study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

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.
