High-performance Windows moves toward June release

SearchWinIT staff

Microsoft is one more step closer to making its entry into the technical computing market with this week's release of the Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 release candidate.

The platform is aimed at corporations that require high-performance capabilities for scientific, financial or engineering applications. The software, which has been in its second beta trial since November, is on track to be released at the end of June, Microsoft said.

Compute Cluster Server 2003 has an integrated job scheduler, Active Directory integration and set-up procedures designed to simplify network configuration. Like Microsoft's next-generation messaging platform, Exchange Server 2007, the Compute Cluster Server 2003 will run only on 64-bit hardware.
