Star-P Anyone?

P: n/a
I was wondering if some power users of Python would be willing to pay
money to benefit from doing a lot of their
scientific/engineering/financial modeling and simulation from running
their programs on high powered computing HPC. HPC would essentially
mean that you run on a cluster or group of computers. The problem is,
it takes forever to parallelize code and as such many people are
uninterested in running their simulations, models, etc. on a parallel
platform. If one were to use the Star-P platform they could be using
their desktop client (MATLAB, Maple, R, Python, etc.) and the Star-P
software could automatically code their programs in a parallel manner.

The main benefit of Star-P would be that the time it would take a user
to run a simulation, model, etc. would take far less time due to the
parallelizing of the code and being able to run on more machines.
Granted Star-P is probably more suited towards individuals who are in
the fields of academia, financial services, aerospace, etc. where your
models take hours to run and execute...

If you have any further questions about this feel free to PM me or goto

P.S. If you folks know of any other Python forums where I can find such
people (academics etc) I would appreciate it if you could tell me...

Thanks
