Software For Affordable Supercomputing

Star-P lets users code algorithms and models on their desktops using familiar mathematical software such as MatLab.

Users can run algorithms instantly instead of reprogramming them in C, Fortran, or MPI to run on parallel computers, which can take months or even years for complex and computationally intensive problems. The software runs on lower-cost AMD Opteron-based systems as well as Itanium-based SGI Altix servers for high-end processing.
