A quick and easy start to HPC development

Excellent news has arrived from the HPC Developer OpenSolaris community, via Bruce Rothermal. Traditionally it’s been very hard to get involved in HPC – you need a lot of kit, a lot of software, and some knowledge to get it all setup.

Sun have solved all of this by making available a Virtual Machine Image for VirtualBox (or VMWare) which contains an entire HPC stack:

  • Sun Grid Engine and Zones
  • MPI and HPC Cluster Tools
  • compilers, scripting languages, and more

The HPC Developer Stack provides a simple, easy way to start getting up to speed with the same technologies and tools that are used on monster installs like TACC’s Ranger.

Grab the download, fire up VirtualBox, and start getting involved in the world of HPC.
