“Solaris HPC users can now get a free download of the latest Sun HPC ClusterTools 7.1 is an update release based on Open MPI 1.2.4. Included in Sun HPC ClusterTools 7.1 is new Intel 32- and 64-bit support, improved parallel debugger support, PBS Pro validation, improved memory usage for communication, and other bug fixes by the Open MPI community since Open MPI 1.2 was first released. Of course HPC ClusterTools continues to support SPARC and Opteron based systems in addition to the new Intel support. You should be sure to also be using the latest, free, Sun Studio 12 compilers to get the best performance out of Sun HPC ClusterTools 7.1, although older Sun Studio 11 and 10 compilers are still supported. And while your updating your HPC software, be sure to get the latest free Sun Grid Engine 6.1 Update 3 which includes several new patches.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
