  • Scientific Computing Associates, Inc. (SCAI), a leading commercial provider of parallel and distributed computing products, has utilized its expertise in high-performance computing to develop the open source Sleigh™ package for executing R functions and applications in parallel. R is a powerful statistical modeling language, but it does not scale well for many compute-intensive analyses. Sleigh addresses this limitation.

    Sleigh automatically distributes and load-balances R function evaluations across multiple processors in an SMP or cluster, accelerating the execution of R applications. R users quickly and easily can learn how to use Sleigh to take advantage of multiprocessors and achieve incredible performance gains.

    Because of the increasing popularity of the R statistical scripting language, SCAI now offers commercial support services to R users, including general R support, development of R applications, and design of high-performance R systems. “We are pleased to be able to provide commercial support to R users and to bring to market new programming tools. These services will enable our users to create high-performance applications easily in their customary environments,” said Dr. Martin Schultz, Founder of SCAI.
