Pathscale Buys IP from Cray, Plans Continued Development of EKOPath Compiler Suite

Today PathScale Inc. announced it has acquired the PathScale intellectual property from Cray.

Until this point we were a licensee of the technology and assets, but this purchase gives us full ownership and control,” said Christopher Bergström, PathScale CTO. “It has taken over two years, but with hard work, great customers and a rebuilt engineering team we’re now in a good position to go to the next level. I see us continuing to grow and aggressively develop technology which leverages heterogeneous environments and pushes performance on supercomputers.”

PathScale described plans to continue developing the EKOPath Compiler Suite, provide support, and launch new products. The company will also continue to contribute parts of the PathScale software to the open source community.

In 2009, we purchased the PathScale compiler assets and forged a partnership with Christopher and his team to provide a smooth transition for Cray customers and the PathScale community as a whole,” said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. “This is a great next step for PathScale and for our customers who run the EKOPath compiler, as I’m confident they will continue to receive excellent support now and into the future. We wish PathScale Inc. all the best in building its business and continuing to bring new and innovative compiler technologies to the market for our customers.”
