Official Awards of Dauger Research, Inc.
"Keeping America Strong" Award
Dauger Research, Inc., is the proud
recipient of the "Keeping America Strong" award, part of a special television
broadcast hosted by William Shatner. This production is one of a "Heartbeat of
America" TV series focusing on innovative small businesses performing
breakthrough work. The program features interviews by Doug Llewelyn, well-known
as "The People's Court" reporter, of the team running Dauger Research, with a
special focus on
the only easy-to-use yet
supercomputer-compatible cluster computing solution.
IEEE "Most Innovative" Software Award
The IEEE Cluster conference awarded their "Best Commercial Exhibit - Software" prize
to the "most innovative commercial software product",
This award is significant because all the major players in cluster computing
was at this conference, yet a committee of an IEEE conference looked beyond the
Linux solutions and pointed to a Macintosh clustering product as the "most

Apple Canada Video
Apple Canada generously invited and hosted
Dr. Dean Dauger of Dauger Research to
give a series of presentations across Canada. This tour had him and his Apple Canada colleagues
present at universities in the vicinities of Vancouver, Toronto, and Montréal.
The following are clips from
the Apple Canada video.
Introduction (1:05, 822 kB) - introduction of the presentation, the authors, and background of the work
Why Parallel? (1:43, 1.1 MB) - what was the motivation for parallel computing, MPI, and clusters
Why Macs? (3:20, 2.3 MB) - why we use Macintosh for clustering

Pooch's Four User Interfaces (3:22, 3.8 MB) - a demonstration of how Pooch supports four distinct user interfaces
Supercomputing Engine for Mathematica (formerly known as PoochMPI Toolkit)
At the Wolfram Technology Conference 2006 in Champaign, Illinois,
we presented the Supercomputing Engine for Mathematica.
Below are links to a video we performed of the presentation, including
tutorials on writing parallel code with MPI and a demonstration of using the Toolkit with
an Xserve cluster.
