gridMathematica 7 enhances parallel computing

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Wed March 18, 2009

gridMathematica 7 ships

Wolfram Research has released gridMathematica 7, expanding the original Mathematica 7's built-in parallelization capabilities. Mathematica is computation software for modeling, simulation, visualization, development and documentation. gridMathematica adds extra computation kernels and automated network distribution tools, running more tasks in parallel, over more CPUs, with faster computation. The new software comes in three versions: gridMathematica Local, Server and Lightweight Grid Manager. The Local version has four additional kernels, allowing it to exploit the capacity of multi-core machines.

Server provides a network-managed pool of computation kernels, which Mathematica users can run locally or on remote hardware to combine the power of multiple computers. The Lightweight Grid Manager is used exclusively to find and run Mathematica kernels on remote hardware, and supports the control of clusters or creating grids on idle machines.

The new software requires a Mathematica license and runs on Linux and Windows as well as Mac OS X. Pricing must be discussed personally with Wolfram.
