Sun makes HPC Parallel Programming easy

Bruce Rothermal blogs that Sun is making it easy to get your feet wet with HPC and Cloud Computing:

“Sun developers have heard your wishes and made it easy for everyone wanting to learn how with HPC Developer Stack. Sun has put together a complete setup for development and testing of the software you want to create. Everything is combined in a single Virtual Machine Image. You can write the code in C, C++, Java, Fortran and many other scripting languages Bourne, bash, C-shell, tclsh, perl, python and more. The Virtual Machine Image uses Solaris Zones and SGE to give you a virtual grid computing system. Everything wrapped up in a single Virtual Image. So from a single laptop or desktop you have everything to get started.” 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.
