Mathematica extension rolls for multi-core systems

Wolfram Research has announced the availability of gridMathematica 7, a Mathematica extension that leverages Mathematica's built-in parallelisation features by adding extra computation kernels and automated network distribution tools.

They are designed to allow users to run more tasks in parallel, over more CPUs, for faster execution without changing a line of code, says the company.

To support operation on multi-core systems, gridMathematica Local adds four more computation kernels to the four already included in a single-machine Mathematica licence.

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 is designed to make it easier to acquire and run Mathematica computation kernels on remote hardware and can be used to control high-performance clusters or create ad hoc grids from idle computers.

Using gridMathematica 7, Tom Wickham-Jones, Director of Kernel Technology at Wolfram said that users can automatically scale up their tasks to grids of any size.

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