Mathematica and Matlab add support for Microsoft CCS

As I posted yesterday, Microsoft released their new HPC OS, Compute Cluster Server 2003 today.

Wasting no time at all both Wolfram Research and Mathworks have already released updates to their HPC products to support the new technology. Both have made the update free, though Mathworks appear to restrict to customers with active service agreements.

I am not sure if there is a recommendation hidden in the diplomatically similar comments provided by John Borozan, group product manager, Windows Server Division at Microsoft...

On Mathematica: "Microsoft is pleased to work with Wolfram Research to deliver a quality computing experience to our shared customers. gridMathematica is an essential application for high-performance computing, and with Wolfram's Cluster Integration Package for Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 we are pleased to know that our customers will have a zero-configuration, seamless solution that meets their needs."

On Matlab: "We are pleased to work with The MathWorks to help facilitate the next wave of discovery in the technical computing community by delivering software that addresses some of the barriers engineers and scientists face. The MathWorks' Distributed Computing Toolbox and Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 work together to simplify the process of developing distributed computing applications so that users can address more complex problems out of the gate."
