24 August 2011

Assemble and operate a parallel computer.

Overview

Pooch provides the easiest way to assemble and operate a parallel computer. We encourage you to see for yourself. Pooch even operates correctly on mixed clusters of OS 9 and OS X Macs. The download also contains the AltiVec Fractal Carbon app, a parallel application that rapidly computes Mandelbrot-style fractals which also demonstrates high-performance computing and parallel computing. And the Fresnel Diffraction Explorer which simulates Fresnel diffraction, a phenomenon of light, using an advanced set of algorithms.

What's new in Pooch

Version 1.8.3:
  • Pooch revised to disable use of deprecated components such as Network Services Library
  • Conversion of the Pooch Installer and Pooch Package to Universal Binary
  • Conversion of other Unix-level components to PowerPC and Intel fat binary
  • Other minor fixes

Wonderful product for those needing extra CPU power for long (day & week-long) analyses. Had it understood & up and running in less than an hour. The developer is very quick to reply & informative. This is apparently superior to Apple's xgrid app...

I was wondering if pooch is able to work under the new Intel Macs and also I wanted to know if I could use any old application (ex. Photoshop) to use pooch? I tried to find the answer on your website but didn't really findd a direct answer.
