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 computers. 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 pages: http://www.wolfram.com/gridmathematica 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.
