HPC Community,

As we ramp to SC'08 in Austin next week, I am pleased to announce the  
availability of Sun HPC ClusterTools 8.1.

CT 8.1 is Sun's high-performance MPI library and parallel job  
launcher based on Open MPI 1.3 (http://www.open-mpi.org).  It is  
fully supported by Sun and includes all features introduced in CT 8.0  
earlier this year (the first release to support Linux as well as  
Solaris), plus with 8.1 we have introduced additional MPI application  
profiling and Dtrace provider support, as well as key bugfixes.

Major features of Sun HPC ClusterTools follow:
  -Support for Linux (RHEL 4&5, SLES 9&10), Solaris 10, OpenSolaris
  -Support for Sun Studio compilers on Solaris and Linux, plus the  
GNU/gcc toolchain on Linux
  -MPI profiling support with Sun Studio Analyzer (see SSX 11.2008),  
plus support for
	VampirTrace and MPI PERUSE
  -Infiniband multi-rail support
  -Mellanox ConnectX Infiniband support
  -DTrace provider support on Solaris
  -Enhanced performance and scalability, including processor affinity  
  -Support for InfiniBand, GbE, 10GbE, and Myrinet interconnects
  -Plug-ins for Sun Grid Engine (SGE) and Portable Batch System (PBS)
  -Full MPI-2 standard compliance, including MPI I/O and one sided  

Full information on CT 8.1, including download link, is available

And congratulations to the entire HPC ClusterTools team for a job  
well done!
