PRESS RELEASE

Supercomputing Engine Technology (SET)

Advanced Cluster Systems (ACS) has introduced its Supercomputing Engine Technology (SET), a software solution that parallelises modular sequential software applications, enabling optimal performance on multi-core platforms and clusters.

SET adopts the parallel paradigm of Message Passing Interface (MPI) while allowing programmers to think sequentially. This makes parallel programming accessible to a much larger pool of programmers. Rather than restrict parallel programming to the elite, SET makes it possible for applications to become parallelised far more quickly and inexpensively than before.

Target markets for the solution include software companies developing for legacy migration, cloud computing and high-performance applications; small and medium enterprises with high performance computing (HPC) requirements; military software development projects that need to manage legacy code; and HPC companies that require better software solutions for their hardware platforms.
