Streamline Computing and Absoft Announce New Debugging Solution for IBM Linux on Power Systems

Distributed Debugging Tool with Fx2 Debugging Solution now available for IBM Power-based scalar and cluster systems

Heidelberg, Germany (June 23, 2004) – Streamline Computing Ltd and Absoft Corporation today announced plans to provide Streamline’s powerful Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) bundled with Absoft’s Multi-language Fx2 Debugging Solution for IBM Linux on Power systems. The combination of DDT’s intuitive interface for parallel debugging and the comprehensive and feature-rich Fx2 Debugging Solution provides the industry’s most complete debugging solution for Fortran, C/C++ users and large-scale parallel applications.

"Fx2 is the industry’s only cost effective debugging solution compatible with Fortran and C/C++ compilers from all leading vendors. Currently running on IA32 and AMD64 based Linux platforms, we are pleased to offer Fx2 with DDT for IBM POWER4-processor based systems running Linux." Stated Wood Lotz, President of Absoft. Fx2 is compatible with compilers from Absoft, gnu, Intel, PathScale, and PGI. The DDT interface from Streamline combined with Fx2 provides the best available debugging solution for parallel environments, from small SMP systems to large clusters. IBM already offers Absoft’s Fortran compilers and Fx2 multi-language debugging solution to IBM HPC customers worldwide for AMD Opteron processor-based IBM eServer 325 and xSeries-based Linux systems. Absoft is also a special OEM for IBM’s XL Fortran and XL C/C++ compilers. "This new relationship with IBM Linux on Power further broadens our combined solutions for Absoft, IBM, and Streamline customers" continued Lotz.

"We are pleased to be working with leading solution providers like Absoft and Streamline to help provide our mutual customers superior, cost-effective features and capabilities to help enhance their competitiveness," said Brian Connors, Vice President of IBM Linux on POWER Business.

"We are delighted to be working with Absoft and IBM to provide the best debugging solution for Power platforms," said Dr. Michael Rudgyard, CEO of Streamline. "DDT has a unique and intuitive interface putting the developer in control of a parallel application - whether working with small SMP systems or large high-performance clusters. The tool gives users a common interface for every compiler, language and MPI distribution. DDT is in use globally at commercial, government and academic sites, and sets new standards for affordability and simplicity of use in parallel debugging."

PathScale EKO Compiler Suite Certified as Interoperable with Streamline Computing’s Distributed Debugging Tool

-- Collaborative Engineering Effort Between PathScale and Streamline Results in More Comprehensive Development Environment for AMD64-Based Clustered Computing --

Sunnyvale, Calif. – June 21, 2004 – PathScale, Inc., developer of innovative software and hardware solutions to accelerate the performance and efficiency of Linux clusters, and Streamline Computing Ltd., a UK-based developer of customized clustering solutions, have announced the mutual certification of their respective Linux compilers and parallel debugger. Specifically, version 1.2 of the PathScale EKO Compiler Suite and version 1.7 of Streamline’s Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) have been updated, cross-tested and certified to be fully interoperable with each other.

"When AMD64 application developers combine the superior performance of the PathScale EKO Compilers with the industry’s easiest-to-use parallel debugging tool, they will find that creating parallel applications for Linux clusters is immediately faster and easier, resulting in more efficient and more scalable applications," said Dr. Michael Rudgyard, president and CEO for Streamline.

The PathScale EKO Compiler Suite for Fortran 77/90/95 and C/C++ is the world’s highest-performance 64-bit compiler for Linux systems powered by AMD Opteron™ and Athlon64™ processors. Streamline’s Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) is a comprehensive graphical debugger designed for the complex tasks associated with debugging scalar, parallel and multi-threaded code.

"Both PathScale and Streamline are committed to accelerating the adoption of clustered computing for all types of high-performance applications," said Scott Metcalf, president and CEO of PathScale. "Together, our two companies are providing AMD64 developers with best-of-breed integrated tools that dramatically speed time to deployment for parallel applications running on Linux clusters."

Version 1.2 of the PathScale EKO Compiler Suite may be purchased from Streamline Computing or PathScale, or from PathScale FastPath Resellers worldwide starting on June 30, 2004. This new PathScale release will also provide support for SuSE 9.1 and Fedora Core 2, and significant performance improvements for both 64-bit and 32-bit applications.

Both PathScale and Streamline Computing will be exhibiting at the International Supercomputer Conference (ISC2004) in Heidelberg, Germany on June 23-25. PathScale will be exhibiting in the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) booth.

DDT saves time and resources in achieving 64-bit computing

22-04-2003, Streamline Computing and AMD announce DDT at AMD Opteron™ launch

April 22, 2003 -- Streamline Computing today announced immediate availability of its Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) for the AMD Opteron™ processor. DDT is a comprehensive graphical debugger designed for the complex task of debugging parallel and multi-threaded code.

DDT has a unique and intuitive interface putting the developer in control of a parallel application - whether working with small SMP systems or large high-performance clusters. The tool gives users a common interface for every compiler, language and MPI distribution. DDT is in use globally at commercial, government and academic sites, and sets new standards for affordability and simplicity of use in parallel debugging.

"AMD's customers adopting clustered servers based on AMD Opteron processors, will benefit from the ability to debug applications in parallel with Streamline DDT, helping to save them time and resources as they capitalize on the power of 64-bit computing," said Rich Heye, vice president and general manager of AMD's Microprocessor Business Unit.

"Cluster users finally have an affordable path to 64-bit computing with AMD Opteron processors and the Distributed Debugging Tool; they will enjoy simple and fast migration of High-Performance Computing applications to exploit the potential of this technology with the unique control of parallel code provided by DDT." said David Lecomber, Director of Software at Streamline Computing.

The 32-bit compatibility of AMD64 technology will enable simultaneous debugging of 32- and 64-bit codes, easing the porting process for developers using this architecture. Compatibility with the compilers of AMD's other partners is a unique feature of DDT.
