"The Multicore Dilemma" Is Rogue Wave Software's Focus at Two Premier Industry Conferences

Era of High Performance Moves Multicore Dilemma Front and Center of Developer Strategies

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - Rogue Wave Software, Inc., the leader in enterprise class C++ components and infrastructure, today announced its participation at two premier industry events: SC08 and SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 West.

Rogue Wave Software to Exhibit at SC08

Rogue Wave Software has been selected to be part of the Disruptive Technologies area and will conduct demonstrations of its recently released Rogue Wave®HydraEnterprise at SC08, which will be held November 15-21, 2008 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX in both a booth in the Disruptive Technologies area (#3222) and in the main exhibition hall (#2807).

The Rogue Wave team will demonstrate how developers in the financial services industry can find solutions to transaction-heavy compute loads and complex demands that result from intense number crunching. The demo is based on a standard single-threaded implementation of financial models creating using QuantLib.org, a reference in the Open-Source Financial Libraries. The challenge is to make those computations available remotely, but also to parallelize their executions on multicore CPU, service grid, GPU, local or remote machines.

"Using Rogue Wave® Hydra we will demonstrate how developers can distribute those computations in a multi/many core or a GPU environment through a service-oriented approach," said Patrick Leonard, Vice President of Engineering and Product Strategy at Rogue Wave. "The key is to provide developers a flexible high-performance computing approach that will let you run computation where it makes the most sense."

Rogue Wave's Patrick Leonard to Speak at SOA World West

Patrick Leonard will be speaking at SOA World West 08, which will be held in San Jose November 20-21 at the Fairmount Hotel. His session, entitled "Beyond the Multi-core dilemma: SOA For Parallel Computing" will be held 11/20 between 4:50-5:35pm and will address how high-throughput parallel computing can be applied to a service-oriented architecture. By using this approach, developers can deliver significant performance increases using parallel computing techniques while maintaining the agility and flexibility of a service-oriented environment.

"The model we call 'Business Process Parallelism' enables developers to run multiple instances of a service on different threads and/or cores in a service grid," said Leonard. "This approach enables both legacy and service-oriented applications to be deployed in distributed environments on multicore hardware without requiring the low level coding associated with traditional tools."

The instructional session will educate the owners of key business applications on how to take advantage of multiple cores in their systems and use configuration rather than recoding of their key systems to take advantage of the move to parallel computing. It will also examine how this migration can help overcome the traditional limitations of SOA in high performance environments.

About SC08

The SC Conference is the premier international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis. SC08 marks the 20th anniversary of the first SC Conference, then called Supercomputing, held in Orlando, Florida in 1988. When SC08 opens November 15, 2008 in Austin, Texas, the conference will feature the latest scientific and technical innovations from around the world. Bringing together scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and managers, SC08 will be the forum for demonstrating how these developments are driving new ideas, new discoveries and new industries.

About SOA World West 08

The 14th International SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 West will take place on November 19-21, 2008 at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA.

The most important business benefit that service-oriented architecture (SOA) can provide is the ability to respond swiftly to change: changes in the market, the supply chain, strategic processes, and regulations. Make sure that you are able in 2008/9 to declare your own company's SOA journey toward such responsiveness and agility a success. Come to SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 West and learn just how much SOA can do for your business and for your developers.
