Members of PRACE Supercomputing Project Adopt TotalView® Debugger

Europe's Top Scientists to Use TotalView® Debugger to Streamline Application Development on High-Performance Computing Platforms

NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - TotalView Technologies, a provider of interactive analysis and debugging tools for serial and parallel codes, announced today that its TotalView Debugger has been adopted by numerous members of the PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) Consortium to accelerate development of software applications on supercomputing platforms. PRACE members currently using TotalView include CINECA-Italy, CSC-Finland, the Forschungszentrum Jülich-Germany, SARA-the Netherlands, IDRIS-France, EPCC-UK, and LRZ-Germany.

The PRACE Consortium was launched in 2008 to create a pan-European High-Performance Computing research resource. Comprising 14 countries, including Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Finland, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland, PRACE aims to ease access to computing resources at all levels for scientists and engineers from academia and industry by taking a coordinated approach to hardware procurement and forming partnerships with national and regional computer centers and scientific organizations.

"Supercomputing is essential to the success of science and industry, so we need to stay ahead of the curve to remain competitive," said Walter Lioen, group leader, Supercomputing, of SARA. "As part of PRACE, we are committed to working with the most advanced supercomputing platforms and tools. The TotalView Debugger will support us as we capitalize on these advanced platforms to develop the next generation of innovative, high-quality software applications."

PRACE members selected the TotalView Debugger for its power, ease of use, scalability and portability. TotalView was designed from the ground up to handle the complexities of the world's most demanding multi-processing applications that scale to thousands of processes and threads with applications distributed over multiple machines or processors. TotalView offers many advanced features, including multi-language support and built-in source code and memory debugging capabilities, which streamline and simplify the development process.

"Members of the PRACE Consortium are helping to position Europe for a future where supercomputers play an increasingly critical role in international competitiveness," said Rich Collier, CEO of TotalView Technologies. "By choosing to use the TotalView Debugger, PRACE will further expand and optimize its members' ability to develop applications on today's most advanced supercomputing platforms."
