Materials Design, Inc. announces the release of MedeA version 2.7, offering the option to run natively on Linux in addition to many other enhancements. The operating systems now fully supported by MedeA are Windows (XP, Vista, and 7), and Linux (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE).
In addition, MedeA also connects to computing resources in the background for large-scale computationally intensive tasks that use a variety of Unix flavors and queuing systems, as well as Windows HPC.
“This release demonstrates our commitment to enable our customers to make full use of their computing resources and maximize their technology investments,” said Erich Wimmer, CEO of Materials Design, Inc. “The ability to seamlessly combine Windows and Linux resources lets you truly focus on science. MedeA is clearly the best choice for computational materials science and engineering, when productivity and innovation are the top priorities.”
In addition, MedeA version 2.7 incorporates VASP version 5.2.11 for 64-bit architectures, which responds to feedback from hundreds of users following the groundbreaking release of VASP 5.2. VASP version 5.2.11 provides an enhanced user experience and improvements when running in parallel and on multi-core computer clusters.
VASP 5.2, which was released in mid 2009, represents a breakthrough in the calculation of electronic and optical properties for semiconductors and insulators of industrial importance.
Full details of all of the enhancements included in MedeA version 2.7 are available on the Materials Design, Inc. web site.
