Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sometimes the headlines just write themselves.

Anyway, from HPCwire we learn today that Clustercorp has announced availability of PGI compilers and tools from The Portland Group as part of its Rocks+Rolls program.

The PGI Roll is one of the first commercial software solutions supported on the open-source Rocks 4.3 software stack. PGI compilers produce highly optimized parallel code for 64-bit multi-core processors from Intel and AMD. In addition, PGI tools include features specifically targeted for Linux clusters. Clustercorp developed the PGI Roll in collaboration with The Portland Group as part of a continuing commitment to support the Rocks community.

The PGI Roll is freely available to download from and is fully supported in Rocks+.
