Smile Free alternative for Axceleon - EnFuzion


Hi dear Folks,

I'd like to know if any of you can recommend me a free alternative for this solution:

http://www.axceleon.com/features.html

If I understand correctly, among other things, this makes it possible for single-threaded applications to "virtually" utilize all CPU cores, thus increasing performance many-many times over...

I run lots of simulations and tests and I could really use something like this.

Hope you have some ideas...?

Cheers!

From what I gather it is not that exactly. It seems to be similar to Sun's system to take "jobs" and spread them across many computers.

Axceleon's EnFuzion or EnFuzion3d does "EXACTLY" utilize 100% of the new 64-bit multi-core processors from Intel and AMD. It is "MISSION CRITICAL" and very stable. And it achieves linear performance gain as additional machines are added to the render farm.

This info is from ENFUZION3D.COM

FACT NOT FICTION!

Hi there,

You are absolutely right... Today I've given it a test drive after waiting about two days for my license file to arrive. It really isn't what I was hoping/looking for at all. It doesn't "parallelize" the execution of an existing software across multiple cores as far as I can see, but it indeed seems to be just another compute cluster which processes "runs", like you said.

What was I thinking... Stupid... Well, too much to hope for. Thanks anyway.

Hi All,

Let me step in here, I know some things about this software.

Enfuzion was designed to deal with data parallel opportunities and enable all cores in the processing this data but it can't magically make a single threaded application become multithreaded. Don't know of any app that can do this, maybe recompile with a parallel compiler, this may help.
