SCAI Announces a New Open Source Software Package to Create High-Performance Scripting Languages - NetWorkSpaces™ with Sleigh™

SCAI announces the availability of NetWorkSpaces with Sleigh. Sleigh is the latest addition to SCAIís family of software products for high performance parallel and distributed computing.

NetWorkSpaces is a powerful, new, open source software package that makes it easy to use multi-core workstations, SMPs, and clusters from within scripting languages such as Matlab, Python, and R. NetWorkSpaces looks and feels like a conventional workspace in the base scripting language. NetWorkSpaces is easy to learn and use, which increases user productivity in implementing and maintaining distributed applications.

SCAI Announces Open Source Software And Solutions For The ďRĒ Statistical Modeling Language

SCAI has utilized its expertise in high-performance computing to develop the open source Sleighô package for executing R functions and applications in parallel. R is a powerful statistical modeling language, but it does not scale well for many compute-intensive analyses. Sleigh addresses this limitation.

Sleigh automatically distributes and load-balances R function evaluations across multiple processors in an SMP or cluster, accelerating the execution of R applications. R users quickly and easily can learn how to use Sleigh to take advantage of multiprocessors and achieve incredible performance gains.

FREE: TCP Lindaģ for Apple Mac OS X Clusters, from SCAI

A four-processor TCP Linda system (for C programs) is now available at no charge for Apple users running Mac OS X. Programmers can use TCP Linda to develop and run parallel applications easily on clusters or networks of Apple computers running OS X. This is a perpetual license for TCP Linda, providing a fully functional system available by download from Scientific Computing Associates(SCAI). To download your copy, click on the "Download TCP Linda" link below.

TCP Linda is a proven industry standard for parallel programming, and well-known for its ease of use, reliability, and efficiency. Linda, introduced in the mid-1980s, was the first commercial product to implement virtual shared memory (VSM) for supercomputers and large workstation clusters. TCP Linda is content-addressable, not address-based, making it much easier to build applications and fully utilize hardware capacity. Benchmarks demonstrate excellent performance and scalability.


"People have pointed out for years that the fit between Linda and Apple technology is perfect," said David Gelernter, Senior Fellow at SCAI. "Linda was designed for simplicity, easy of use, elegance; first we made it simple, then we added state-of-the art performance.Nothing is more valuable than a developer's time. Linda is the only general parallel and distributed programming tool that puts developers first."

TCP Linda provides a simple, yet complete command set that can be added to programs to enable process creation, synchronization and communication. Every Linda software system employs a powerful Linda optimizing (pre)compiler and a carefully tuned, architecture-specific run-time system. With the free four-processor TCP Linda system, users can parallelize any program written in C using just four simple TCP Linda operations.

SCAI is known for excellence in very high-performance parallel and distributed computing since 1980.SCAI is the leading commercial provider of middleware, technology and consulting services for high-performance computing on clusters and networks, and more.
