The Portland Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, has formed a licensing agreement under which Cray Inc. will resell PGI optimizing F95, C and C++ compilers and development tools with Cray's Red Storm-based line of parallel processing (MPP) supercomputers.

Cray's Red Storm-based product line will utilize the same system and interconnect technology used for the Red Storm 40-TeraOp (40 trillion calculations per second) supercomputer designed by Cray in partnership with the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories. The Red Storm systems use AMD Opteron processors and Cray's high-speed interconnect technology.

"The Sandia Red Storm project and the Red Storm-based product line reflect Cray's strategy to deliver high-efficiency, high bandwidth supercomputer systems which are based on commodity processors and complement the Cray X1TM line of scalable vector supercomputers," said Dave Kiefer, Cray's VP of engineering. "The PGI compilers and tools have been used on the Sandia's ASCI Red system for several years. They provide continuity between that system and Red Storm, and are among the most widely used compilers and tools for science and engineering on Linux workstations and clusters. By including PGI's established line of Linux compilers and tools, we can provide a comprehensive HPC product solution with the performance and reliability Cray customers expect."
