LinuxPR: Scyld Beowulf Introduces New Technology for Scalable High Performance Computing

Oct 09, 2000, 16:16 (0 Talkback[s])

"Scyld Computing Corporation today released the Scyld Beowulf Scalable Computing software. The Scyld Beowulf software provides simplified cluster integration and setup, minimal administration, and seamless scalability."

"Beowulf-style cluster systems are computers running open-source operating systems that are networked together to form a parallel processing supercomputer. The Scyld Beowulf distribution is the next generation Beowulf operating system. It includes an enhanced Linux kernel, libraries, and utilities specifically designed for clustering. The Scyld Beowulf system provides a stable, standard, supported platform for the deployment of advanced clustering applications."

"Scyld Beowulf enhances the Linux kernel with features that allow users to start, observe, and control processes on cluster nodes from the cluster's front-end computer while supporting standard Linux interfaces and tools. The result is that the cluster appears to be more like a single multiprocessor computer to a user or developer. This reduces the cost of cluster application development, testing, training, and administration."
