Intel® Cluster Studio for Windows/Linux
Intel Cluster Studio - includes a unified cluster installation for all of our most popular software development products for cluster applications.
The package includes:
• Intel® C++ Compiler
• Intel® Fortran Compiler
• Intel® Compiler Suite
• Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives
• Intel® Parallel Building Blocks
• Intel® Math Kernel Library
• Intel® MPI Library
• Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector
• Intel® MPI Benchmarks
• Intel® Cluster Toolkit
• Intel® Cluster Toolkit Compiler Edition
Intel® Cluster Studio 2011 (formerly Intel® Cluster Toolkit Compiler Edition) sets a new standard in distributed performance on Intel® Architecture (IA)-based clusters. This premier tool suite provides development flexibility for enabling MPI-based application performance for highly parallel shared-memory and cluster systems based on Intel® IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures.
The newly re-architected Intel® MPI Library 4.0 Update 1 is key to achieving these advantages by providing new levels of cluster scalability, improved interconnect support across many fabrics, faster on-node messaging, support for hybrid parallelization, and an application tuning capability that adjusts to the cluster and application structure.
For the developer, Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector 8.0 Upgrade 1 is enhanced with new features that accelerate the analysis and tuning cycle of MPI-based cluster applications. The suite is complemented with the latest Intel® C/C++ and Fortran Compiler XE 12.0 technology along with Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) 10.3, Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) 7.0.
New in this package is the availability of threading technologies in Intel® Parallel Building Blocks (Intel® PBB). This includes multiple threading mechanisms for task, data, and vector parallelism, Intel® Cilk Plus, Intel® Threading Building Blocks, and Intel® Array Building Blocks (in beta, available separately). This helps to further optimize and parallelize application execution on each computing node of a cluster. The Intel® Fortran compiler introduces Co-arrays as part of supporting some key features of the Fortran 2008 standard. Co-Array Fortran (CAF) is supported on HPC clusters in this package. To exploit increasing vector support in IA processors with SSE and Intel® AVX, the compilers include array notation and SIMD pragmas to get higher vectorization efficiencies along with ease of use.
