Interactive Supercomputing mission is to bridge the gap between easy-to-use desktop modeling, simulation and development tools with the power, scalability and low cost of parallel computer systems, clusters and grids. In order to fulfill this mission, we have developed the Star-P software platform. Is is an interactive parallel computing platform that extends existing desktop simulation tools for simple, user-friendly parallel computing on a spectrum of computing architectures such as multi-core clusters.
Our customers are scientists, engineers and analysts who want to solve large and complex problems that can no longer be done productively on the desktop computer. By eliminating the re-programming associated with porting desktop application code to parallel systems, Star-P fundamentally transforms the workflow, substantially shortening the “time to solution,” and delivers the “best of both worlds”-the interactive and familiar use of the desktop coupled with supercomputer-like problem-solving capabilities.
We have presented the performance capabilities of Star-P at SC08, and wanted to share with you the presentation.
