Pooch Selected for Omneta Supercomputer

Omneta Selects Pooch Cluster Technology for Several Thousand Node System

Paris, France - Apple Expo - September 21, 2005 - Omneta selects Pooch Pro, clustering technology of Dauger Research, to support its distributed supercomputer cluster. A long-recognized leader among cluster solution providers, Dauger Research delivers an unmatched combination of powerful tools to manage and maintain cluster resources, maximizing the power of clusters for its users. Pooch technology is part of the software backbone of their supercomputer and Omneta's RAP ("Rent-A-Processor") service.

"Pooch gives its users the fastest and easiest entry into parallel computing.", said Dr. Dean Dauger, President of Dauger Research, Inc. "We look forward to counting this among the many milestones we've accomplished with clustering. Not only is Pooch's ease of use and reliability making clustering accessible for those who are not experts, but, for Omneta, our Pooch Pro technology will support one of the most powerful clusters ever."

"Omneta is pushing the boundaries of computing. The Pooch family's ease of use will enable our clients to easily control the complexity of our 'Rent-A-Processor' service." says Tony Clark, Omneta CTO. Kevin O'Keeffe, Omneta CCO, adds "Using the simplicity of Pooch in conjunction with our highly secure RAP processing access gives the client user peace of mind at an exceptionally high level and low cost."

The Pooch family leads the way making grid and cluster computing easy-to-use and reliable. Pooch and Pooch Pro can have multiprocessor Macs behave like multiple "virtual nodes". They can can utilize logged-out machines for parallel computing with pre-existing resources. Pooch supports all execution environments available on current Apple hardware and supports five distinct implementations of the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) as well as grid-style distributed computing. Pooch Pro provides the only easy-to-use GUI-based resource management mechanism, securely encrypting user data about CPU time, job limits, and even rollover minutes, another feature unique to Pooch Pro in the cluster world.

Via the Dauger Research web site users can access tutorials outlining the different types of parallel computing, detailed MPI information, and descriptions, in Fortran and C, of the basics of writing parallel code. Website visitors can download installers containing a trial Pooch, sample parallel applications and source code, a Pooch Software Development Kit, and full documentation. Pricing and requirements are listed on the web site. Dauger Research makes it easier than ever to write, develop, and run your parallel code today.

Profiled and honored very recently on national television by the William Shatner-hosted "Keeping America Strong" show, Dauger Research, Inc. makes high-performance computation and visualization easy to use and accessible to users. Our award-winning team, to better accomplish our scientific goals, reinvented the cluster computer in 1998, pioneering easy-to-use, high-performance clusters. Dauger Research, Inc., is committed to bridging the divides between the scientifically and technically complex and the mainstream.
