ISC announced this week that they’ve revved Star-P
Star-P 2.6 is a parallel application development platform that lets scientists, engineers and analysts create algorithms and models on their desktops using familiar mathematical tools – such as MATLAB®, Python and R – and then run them instantly and interactively on parallel computers with little to no modification. Star-P eliminates the need to re-program applications in C, Fortran or MPI in order to run on parallel systems, resulting in huge productivity gains.
The major new features in my mind are:
- New code optimization tools for faster app performance
- Expanded Python support
- R language “preview” client
- Windows Vista support
