After attending a STEM fair at his school last night, my second-grade son is starting to realize that the future is all about code, understanding big data, and how to leverage that. This reinforces what I already know: That supercomputing conferences keeps growing. Since Rogue Wave Software is all about the quality of code, we continue to stay in front of those trends.
As an example, we attended SC16 in November and had a great time. It was quite busy: Meeting with customers, prospects, and partners; and a presentation at the ARM HPC User Group meeting announcing the early access release of ARM64 support as part of our TotalView for HPC and CodeDynamics 2016.07 releases.
There was a fair amount of buzz at the conference around ARM64, plus some buzz about Intel’s Xeon Phi’s newest release. Because we support both of these, along with our support for CUDA 8, our booth was quite busy.
We spent a good amount of time at the booth presenting our new UI. There was increased interest in the UI because it now supports running on MAC OSX, ARM64, and PowerLE. We also just added support for Fortran in the new UI, extending our reach into the HPC market. The new UI is available in both TotalView and CodeDynamics.
In the coming months we look forward to having the official release of our support for ARM64, and continuing to stay in front of trends in the HPC market. For more information, see what’s new in TotalView for HPC and CodeDynamics.
