Some of Apple’s SciTech pages have been rewritten. There’s a section on ”
High Performance Computing
” and ”
High Performance Computing (HPC) Products for Mac OS X
” to reflect the growing importance of Mac OS X.
The former site discusses how the underlying Unix foundation of Mac OS X creates many new technical opportunities for clusters and compute farms using Mac hardware. The latter looks at components needed to build a Power Mac-based cluster.
The SciTech site focuses on the Mac in the science and technology field. The site’s goal is to show how Apple technologies can help advance research in a lab, office or clinic.
The SciTech site has sections on:
Scientific Imaging that showcases “outstanding imaging products for research, medicine and dentistry” that run on the Mac platform;
Life Sciences, which looks at Mac compatible “world class” tools for genomic, proteomic and chemistry research;
Physical Science, which rounds up third-party compilers and visualization and imaging tools that make the Mac a “premiere analysis tool and digital hub” for the physical scientist;
Research Tools, which is a source of info for technologies for collecting and analyzing data and publishing results. (Thanks to MacCentral reader John Martellaro for alerting us to these additions.)
