gridMathematica increases the power of Mathematica by adding extra computation kernels and automated network-distribution tools.
Easily control CPUs and GPUs to solve large problems fast.
Extending Mathematica's built-in parallelization capabilities, gridMathematica runs more tasks in parallel, over more CPUs and GPUs, for faster execution. With gridMathematica, process coordination and management is completely automated. Appropriate parallel tasks run faster with no need for code changes.
Providing a network-managed pool of 16 computation kernels, gridMathematica can be shared by a group of Mathematica users locally and can run on remote hardware to combine the power of multiple computers.
Parallel Computation Comes Standard with Mathematica
Every copy of Mathematica includes the capability for instant parallel computing at no additional charge. In single-machine configurations, Mathematica includes the ability to compute across four local processor cores and can be extended to make use of eight or more cores with the purchase of Mathematica Core Extension.
Premier Service subscribers and gridMathematica users also receive complimentary use of Wolfram Lightweight Grid Manager, a program that makes it easy for users to find and use Mathematica computation kernels on remote machines and to create ad hoc grids powered by unused kernels.
gridMathematica is an integrated extension system for increasing the power of your Mathematica licenses. Each gridMathematica Server gives Mathematica users a shared pool of 16 additional network-enabled Mathematica computation kernels for running distributed parallel computations over multiple CPUs.
There is no need to change your existing parallel code-just make gridMathematica Server available, and parallel programs can automatically use the additional CPU power. Whether you have a massive parallel task or just want a little boost, you can quickly grab some extra power when you need it.
