Date Added: Feb 2010
Format: Webcast

The latest version of Windows HPC Server offers the signature advantages of a Windows operating system such as ease of use, advanced professional development tools, and unparalleled binary compatibility. However, the migration of applications to a Windows platform can be a learning experience for a typical High-Performance Computing (HPC) developer with a strong UNIX background. This webcast discusses the anatomy of a typical HPC application and the general porting process. The presenter explains how to use cross-platform development tools such as Cygwin, CMake, Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA), and the migration API reference guide. The presenter also provides an update on the status of OSS solver and I/O libraries.
