Etnus LLC, the world's leading provider of debugging solutions for high-performance computing environments, announced today that it has added support for TotalView's powerful memory debugging capabilities to the Cray XT4 supercomputer product line. TotalView is the primary memory debugging solution for this architecture.
TotalView is the world's most advanced debugger on Linux, UNIX, and Mac OS X. It enhances developer productivity by simplifying the process of debugging data-intensive, multi-process, multi-threaded or network-distributed applications. TotalView's interactive memory debugger helps find and eliminate memory problems as code is debugged. Since memory debugging capabilities are built-in, it is less intrusive than other memory analysis tools and eliminates the need to switch tools and re-compile.

designnews.com: High-performance computing (HPC) has moved from the domain of government and academic laboratories to being an essential component of the design process. Today, it is almost unthinkable to develop the key components of a car, airplane or even many consumer products without computer-assisted structural or impact analysis.

Linux Magazine: Over the past few years, this column has covered a wide variety of topics in high-performance computing (HPC), primarily with an eye toward Beowulf-style, Linux clusters. Since the first such commodity clusters were built in the mid- to late-1990s, they have increasingly served as the model for commercial supercomputers. And as supercomputer vendors have died off, the often-struggling vendors that remain are using more commodity components and processors. While the cluster architecture was in use long before the first Beowulfs, clusters now make up almost 73 percent of the fastest supercomputers in the famed “Top 500” list.

The industry best 1U, 2P, Dual Core "Ice Box" HP ProLiant DL365 has arrived in the World famous
Golden Eggs visualisation basket. It is still ejaculation warm in this winter snowstorm evening.
It is small in size, just 1U for two powerful AMD64 Opteron processors and max 32GB main memory.
Redundant turbo blowers, dual power, full two Gigabits and iLo2 LAN connections. Internal six channel SAS Raid controller,
two rocket fast x8 PCI-Express option slots. And finally, disk slots for total six (6) Hot-plug drives.
This is storage and HPC number crunching capacity for an average size metropolis.
