Electric Cloud announced the availability of its product line, including the ElectricAccelerator software build solution, for Microsoft’s High Performance Computing (HPC) platform. The Electric Cloud solution provides a more efficient, manageable IT infrastructure and as much as 20x faster throughput for software builds.
Electric Cloud made its announcement in conjunction with Microsoft’s Windows HPC Server 2008.
“Software development is one of the highest ROI applications in high performance computing,” said Mike Maciag, Electric Cloud CEO. “We partnered with Microsoft to enable the industry’s fastest builds for some of the world’s largest software development organizations with Electric Cloud’s products on top of Microsoft’s HPC operating system.”
“One of the core applications for high performance computing technology is software development, and partners like Electric Cloud are helping customers make big productivity gains in this area,” said Vince Mendillo, director of HPC at Microsoft Corp. “Companies will benefit from both the power and efficiencies provided by the Electric Cloud solution and Windows HPC Server 2008 to enable agile development methodologies and build better software faster.”
Windows HPC Server 2008 and ElectricAccelerator
Windows HPC Server 2008, the next generation of high-performance computing, provides enterprise-class tools for a highly productive HPC environment. Built on 64-bit technology, Windows HPC Server 2008 can efficiently scale to thousands of processing cores and includes management consoles that help developers proactively monitor and maintain system health and stability. Job scheduling, interoperability and flexibility enables integration between Windows and Linux-based HPC platforms, and supports batch and service-oriented application (SOA) workloads. Enhanced productivity, scalable performance, and ease of use are some of the features that make Windows HPC Server 2008 best-of-breed for Windows environments.
Working with Microsoft, Electric Cloud has optimized ElectricAccelerator to work seamlessly with Windows HPC Server, so that users gain the performance and ease of use benefits of a high performance computing environment to support application development.
