Less than six months ago, Wolfram Research integrated automatic 
parallel technology into Mathematica 7. Today, that power can be 
multiplied by more powerful hardware and clusters with the 
release of gridMathematica 7, including new technology, Wolfram 
Lightweight Grid Manager, for launching Mathematica on remote 

gridMathematica extends the built-in parallelization features of 
Mathematica by adding extra computation kernels and automated 
network distribution tools--allowing users to run more tasks in 
parallel, over more CPUs, for faster execution without changing a 
line of code.

gridMathematica's new extension technology makes parallel tasks, 
even personal supercomputing, easy. Whether computations are 
distributed over local or remote CPUs, process coordination and 
management is completely automated.
* gridMathematica Local adds four additional computation kernels 
to the four already included in a single-machine Mathematica 
license, making it ideal for individual user who needs a boost of 
power on a multicore machine.
* gridMathematica Server provides a network-managed pool of 
computation kernels that can be shared by a group of Mathematica 
users locally or run on remote hardware to combine the power of 
multiple computers.
* Wolfram Lightweight Grid Manager makes it easy for users to 
acquire and run Mathematica computation kernels on remote 
hardware and can control high-performance clusters or create ad 
hoc grids from idle computers.

Using gridMathematica 7, you can automatically scale up your 
tasks to grids of any size--allowing you to deliver accurate 
solutions even faster.

More details about gridMathematica are available on its web 

gridMathematica requires a Mathematica license and is available 
for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

NOTE: gridMathematica users with Premier Service will receive an 
email in the next few days notifying them of their free upgrade 
and when they will receive their media shipment.
