Scientific Computing Associates to Offer Enhanced Parallel Development Tools with HP
New Haven,CT. June 20, 2006 Scientific Computing Associates, Inc.
(SCAI) today announced that its SCAI parallel development tool sets
will be available from HP across the HP ProLiant and BladeSystem portfolio.
These products include the new parallel R and parallel R Pro
offerings for use with R and Python, as well as its flagship products
Linda® and Paradise®.
SCAI's software products enable analysts, scientists, engineers, and
researchers to develop parallel codes to solve complex problems using
easy to learn and utilize tool sets. Users will gain quick resolution of
problems with the use of SCAI's simple but powerful set of commands
allowing development of parallel and distributed solutions.
Dr. Martin H. Schultz, Founder of SCAI, commented that "We believe our
software will play a key role in the adoption of parallel computing as a
common development method for increasing performance across the HP
ProLiant and BladeSystem platforms. As proven by the maturity and
success of the tool sets and the introduction of our parallel R
offering, we continue to enhance development solutions for the
productivity worker, who need to focus on solving their business or
parallel R is a powerful open source software package designed for
easy to use clusters from within increasingly popular scripting
languages like R and Python. While these scripting languages are
powerful and flexible development tools being used by millions of
people, they are inherently slow. Clusters with easy to use
parallelization tools will provide a real boost to scripting language
performance. parallel R Pro is offered by subscription, and
includes services and support from SCAI.
SCAI's Linda software provides an easy to use interface and command set
which makes complex parallel application coding more efficient on
tightly coupled clustered server configurations. Paradise facilitates
the same constructs for both loosely coupled clustered servers and
workstations as well as grid enabled LAN or Wide Area attached machines.
"With the increasing interest in the industry standard solutions for
state-of-the-art analytics and financial modeling, SCAI's tool sets are
poised for new and exciting application growth," said Anne Ambrose,
worldwide director, Trading and Investment Solutions, Financial Services
Industry, HP. "Our work with SCAI reflects our commitment to provide
the global financial services industry with the best in innovative
SCAI provides an enterprise-wide framework for building parallel and
distributed systems across a network. SCAI's suite of parallel
development middleware helps reduce development costs and speed
delivery of complex problem solutions for prompt decision making,
allowing software developers to focus on their code--not on
time-consuming and expensive systems integration. SCAI development tool
sets are installed across multiple industry segments areas, such as
chemistry, finance, life sciences, manufacturing, petroleum engineering,
basic science and research, and more.
