Louisville, Colo. (PRWEB) April 25, 2006
Massively Parallel Technologies, Inc. (Massively), a provider of on-demand high-performance computing (HPC), announced the addition of Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, Microsoft Server 2003, Microsoft Server 2003 x64 and Mac OS X to their list of supported operating systems. Massively’s middleware creates a foundation for unprecedented scaling and performance of HPC applications where speedup in time-to-answers at a low cost is important. Extending Moore’s price-performance curve and breaking through existing 30x max speedups, Massively makes up to 1000x speedup a reality using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems and standard networking technologies.
“Affordable, on-demand, supercomputing performance is something that can benefit everyone from the traditional HPC user to the general consumer. Whether the task at hand is to discover the next block-buster drug, deliver the fastest possible photo-realistic frame rendering, complete real-time biometric identification or take database search performance to an entirely new level, these types of applications contain compute- and cross-communication intense components that benefit from our patented middleware and parallelization techniques,” stated Massively’s CEO, Scott Smith. “Given the wide-range of industries and applications our technologies apply to, Massively recognizes the need to support a wide-range of operating systems.”
In addition to supporting in-house deployment, Massively’s initial commercial offering is the BioTech Virtual Power Center (VPC). Users of Massively’s online accessible basic local alignment search tool (BLAST) can run large sequence similarity searches and experience massive speedup in time-to-answers without the costs and complexities of owning and managing their own compute cluster. As Massively releases new parallelized applications and algorithms, the BioTech VPC will continue to evolve, and new VPC’s will be made available.
