Windows based parallel computing

Objective

Within the WINPAR project an integrated software development environment for parallel computing will be developed, targeting a new class of parallel computers: personal computers interconnected by local area networks running Windows NT. The technical objectives of WINPAR are to provide a message passing layer including MPI and PVM, to provide a set of tools for code development, simulation, performance prediction graphical high-level debugging, monitoring and visualisation of parallel applications. The commercial objectives are to offer an affordable parallel development environment for training and education at universities, research organisations and industry.

Tools including AUGUR, MODARCH, ParadiseC++, TRAPPER, WPVM and WMPI will be enhanced, integrated and ported to Windows NT. The WINPAR environment will be available for both, UNIX and Windows NT and share a common look-and-feel.

WPVM and WMPI will be offered as public domain on the Internet. The WINPAR environment will be offered to the users of WPVM and WMPI as a commercially available product, which will be jointly offered by GENIAS and SIMULOG.
