Parallel Computing Toolkit

Wolfram Research has introduced parallel computing support for Mathematica. The upcoming Parallel Computing Toolkit will add parallel programming over a network of heterogeneous machines to the long list of programming paradigms supported in Mathematica. It implements many parallel programming primitives and includes high-level commands for parallel execution of operations such as animation, plotting and matrix manipulation. The Parallel Computing Toolkit builds on Mathematica's symbolic programming language. It is written entirely in the Mathematica language and uses Mathematica's standard MathLink protocol to communicate between any number of Mathematica kernels.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale?
