Pooch clustering software adds Snow Leopard support

updated 08:05 pm EST, Tue November 17, 2009

Software can launch some applications on clusters

Dauger Research has announced Pooch and Pooch Pro 1.8 with new support for Snow Leopard. The clustering software provides a graphical user interface for its supercomputer-compatible parallel computing utiliities. Version 1.8 can configure, manage, monitor and maintain Mac clusters (also Linux clusters) and uses technology like BSD-standard sockets for communications, POSIX-standard paths for file access, and Apple's open source mDNS library.

Pooch can combine nodes running Mac and Linux systems in multiple variations, while multicore support can be used to make each core a virtual node. It can also launch parallelized universal applications onto a cluster, which the company claims is a first for clustering software.

Pooch and Pooch Pro (which has advanced resource management capabilities) require networked Macs running at least Mac OS X 10.2, with Linux capabilities including Ubuntu, SUSE, and Red Hat. Pooch is $175 for the first node and $125 for each additional node, while the Pro version is $200 for the first node and $150 for each following node.
