Pooch Updated From Macworld With New Interface

by , 6:00 PM EST, January 6th, 2004

Dauger Research, Inc. has released an update for Pooch, bringing it to version 1.4. Pooch is a utility designed for the assembly and operation of a parallel computer networks for increased computing power. The update features a graphically based job queue and scheduling system. According to Dauger Reasearch:

Dauger Research, Inc., delivers version 1.4 of Pooch, the Parallel OperatiOn and Control Heuristic application.

This version debuts a new graphically-based, dynamic job queue and scheduling system taking advantage of Pooch's built-in heuristic functions and cluster diagnostics. It also sports an updated graphical user interface taking advantage of features introduced in Panther, Apple's latest Mac OS X.

Pooch, deemed "most innovative" by IEEE Cluster, combines powerful, numerically-intensive parallel-computing clusters with the famed ease-of-use of the Macintosh. While blurring the distinction between cluster and grid computing, Pooch is the only solution that merges a modern graphical user interface with parallel computing.

You can find more information about the Pooch update at the Dauger Research Web site. Pooch 1.4 is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$175.00.
