"The MSC.Linux distro supports a family of MSC.Software design and simulation software products for Linux, which the company says enable business users to run industrial analyses and product design applications in a supercomputing environment."
"Joining the growing number of efforts underway to move Linux clustering technology out of its academic base and into business use, MSC.Software has announced beta availability of MSC.Linux."
"According to the announcement, MSC.Linux adds cluster support to Linux, allowing dozens or hundreds of connected low-cost PCs to match the processing power of expensive supercomputers. MSC.Linux is said to provide a number of high-end capabilities in addition to clustering, including support for "substantial memory" and very large files, and high-performance data transfer."
"Frank Perna, MSC.Software CEO, described how MSC.Linux relates to the family of MSC.Software design and simulation software products the company offers with it: "MSC.Linux is the cornerstone of our Linux-based systems, designed to satisfy our customers' toughest problems." MSC.Software claims to be the first company to make such critical applications available on Linux to enable business users to run industrial analyses and product design applications in a supercomputing environment.
