AVS parallelizes imaging on Windows clusters

Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 accessible from AVS/Express visualization toolkit.

Advanced Visual Systems (AVS) has announced the first deliverables resulting from a joint development in the field of high performance computing with Microsoft. The collaboration sees enhancements to the AVS/Express data visualization system that leverage Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 R2. New features include integration with Microsoft’s job scheduler, added security to Microsoft MPI communication and access to cluster resources from within the AVS/Express data visualization environment.

AVS CTO Anoop Chatterjee said, ‘Our relationship with Microsoft reflects the needs of the hands-on HPC customer. For developers this means a faster and easier approach to creating clusters. For engineers it means easier access to state-of-the-art 3D data visualization. We look forward to testing our applications in Microsoft’s performance lab.’

Bill Hamilton, Microsoft’s director of technical computing added, ‘The Windows HPC Server and AVS/Express combo provides scalable compute power and visualization resources.’ More from www.oilit.com/links/1104_26.
