Scientific Computing Associates To Distribute TurboLinux Clustering Products

New Haven, CT (October 6, 2000) - Scientific Computing Associates - experts in parallel and distributed computing with more than two decades of experience, today announced a strategic agreement with TurboLinux to support and distribute the TurboLinux clustering products.

TurboLinux is a market leader in Linux clustering solutions with award-winning products for high availability as well as high performance parametric computing.

“The combination of Scientific Computing Associates and TurboLinux’s experiences creates a dynamic partnership that will be a winning combination in promoting and supporting high performance computing solutions,” said Jerry Lipchus, Director of Sales for Scientific Computing Associates.

“Customers for high performance clustering solutions demand the highest levels of service and expertise for their mission-critical applications,” said Mike Duffy, Vice President of Global Enterprise Sales and Services for TurboLinux. “SCA brings unmatched skills and experience in high performance computing clusters to our partnership and together we can deliver our customers the most complete solutions on the market.”

EnFuzion from TurboLinux turns networks into high speed, fault tolerant, highly available supercomputers. EnFuzion is based on a simple but powerful concept called parametric execution. Parametric execution requires the same application to be executed many times with different input data. Parametric executions are ideally suited to run on large computing clusters. By using clusters of dedicated servers or workstations, EnFuzion delivers the accelerated performance for parametric problem solving. EnFuzion does not require that users access or modify the source code for their applications. No programming is required. Users easily create parallel jobs by using the EnFuzion wizard.

Scientific Computing Associates’ Linda® software is a set of powerful extensions to C, C++, Fortran and Java that enables rapid development and deployment of parallel applications. Linda® is a coordination language which supplies the "glue" needed to cement many independent processes together into a single parallel program. Linda® provides a Virtual Shared Memory (VSM) that is logically shared by all the processes in a parallel program. Linda® is easy to use, even for users who are new to parallel computing. Proven applications include financial and risk analysis, computational chemistry and biotechnology, seismic analysis, electronic design (EDA), and computational fluid dynamics.
