"Tiger's leadership in 64-bit computing enables developers to build and run a new generation of applications," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're excited that EnSight users will be able to take advantage of Tiger's support of native 64-bit applications to visualize complex datasets."
Tiger's support for 64-bit computing will enable EnSight users to take full advantage of the power of Apple's G5-based Xserve clusters. Users can now load world-class-sized datasets and visualize them interactively in EnSight Gold's Server-of-Servers (SOS) running on a G5 Xserve cluster.
CEI's flexible architecture supports mixing of computer platforms within a single visualization session, within a workgroup, or even across an entire corporate network. EnSight users running Tiger can connect to other Macs or non-Mac versions of EnSight for remote client-server visualization, collaborative visualization, cluster-based visualization, and multi-tiled displays for large visualization systems.
CEI's licensing model is platform-independent. Tiger users within existing CEI customer sites can simply install the applications and contact the network administrator to obtain the license key to use the software.
EnSight and EnSight Gold are software for visualizing, analyzing and communicating computational results for automotive, aerospace, chemical and scientific visualization problems. EnLiten, EnVideo and EnVe are free software packages that provide an easy way to use EnSight animations for collaboration and communication.
