New Books from Sun Authors

Now that Solaris is getting more HPC features like InfiniBand support, some of Sun’s sharpest performance folks have stepped up with some new books to enlighten us all:
* Sun’s Darryl Gove has written a new book for Sun Press called Solaris Application Programming, a comprehensive guide to optimizing the performance of applications running in your Solaris environment. From the fundamentals of system performance to using analysis and optimization tools to their fullest, this wide-ranging resource shows developers and software architects how to get the most from Solaris systems and applications. The Table of Contents and a sample chapter are online. The book is available from Sun Press and Amazon.
* With multicore computer use increasing, the need for a comprehensive introduction and overview of the standard interface is clear. The new book, Using OpenMP provides an essential reference not only for students at both undergraduate and graduate levels but also for professionals who intend to parallelize existing codes or develop new parallel programs for shared memory computer architectures. Written by Barbara Chapman, Gabriele Jost, and Sun’s Ruud van der Pas. 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.
