Framingham, MA — Etnus, a supplier of parallel application debuggers for the UNIX market, Wednesday announced it has sustained growth and profitability during its first twelve months of operation as a distinct business unit.
Etnus was previously the ToolWorks group of Dolphin, and was established as a wholly-owned business in August, 1998. During the past 12 months, Etnus has realized more than 50% growth in gross revenue with even faster growth in license and maintenance sales.
“We have seen a strong demand for the TotalView parallel debugger from all sectors of the scientific and technical computing communities,” said Chris Doehlert, president and CEO of Etnus. “We are projecting year-to-year growth of better than 50% based on this demand for our traditional UNIX debuggers and our new Linux debugging capability that will be available in January, 2000.”
TotalView is a fast and efficient application debugger supporting the Fortran, C, and C++ languages as well as most parallel computing paradigms. TotalView supports multi-process and multi-threaded applications such as the complex codes used to model nuclear physics and oil reservoir simulation, the sophisticated econometric applications used for predicting stock market trends, and many high-end applications used in large computing and research laboratories.
The company staff also grew by more than 50% in the last year, including two new members of the Etnus management team. Rich Collier, vice president of engineering, comes to Etnus with more than eighteen years experience in software development management and has assumed overall responsibility for Etnus’ product development. Mary Kay Bunde, director of market development, comes to Etnus from SGI with more than fifteen years of technical and management experience in technical computing and is responsible for Etnus sales on mid-range, multiprocessor systems.
Etnus, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dolphin Interconnect Solutions, Inc., is based in Framingham, Massachusetts. Etnus supports developers and major system vendors by providing multiprocessor, multi-node debugging and performance analysis tools. TotalView scales beyond the capability of any other debugger and is deployed on systems of all sizes in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, finance and manufacturing, as well as on the multi-thousand processor systems of the U.S. Department of Energy’s ASCI (Advanced Strategic Computing Initiative) program.
