Product Focus

New version of Matlab & Scilab Interface:
The new release of Matlab & Scilab connectors improves drastically the fault-tolerance when running Matlab and Scilab distributed jobs. Various fault scenarios such as disconnection from the scheduler, Matlab and Scilab client crash, are now handled seamlessly with the ability to restart a computation to the point right before the crash. Matlab & Scilab clients can now behave in a fully "disconnected" approached with the Scheduler: submitting jobs, receiving results and connecting/disconnecting at will. Learn more....

ProActive Workflow & Parallelization:

  • Major improvements in AMQP protocol:
    • Performance was greatly improved and is now on par with pamr.
    • New amqp-federation protocol allows using multiple federated brokers.
    • Support for ssh tunneling for connection to the broker.
  • Amazon S3 provider now added to the VFSFactory.

ProActive Workflow & Parallelization accelerates and scales your most demanding applications, allows you to build up elasticity, and to seamlessly execute on premises and in the Clouds.

Proactive Orchestration & Scheduling:

Performance and Stability

- Complete redesign of the Database layer, resulting in major improvements in performance: faster start-up, reduce memory consumption. Support for non persistent storage.
-  Many bug fixes resulting in a even more stable product.
- Improvements with respect to stability in the resource selection mechanism


- New command line client based on REST communications
- New user friendly APIs for retrieving logs related to tasks execution
- Logging system improved - it is easier to trace issues on remote task execution
- New caching mechanism for input and output files which prevent network errors from compromising the workflow data transfers
- Data transfer now supports Amazon S3 file systems

The ProActive Scheduler allows easy distribution of all your applications (Native, Java, Scripts, Matlab, Scilab, GPU, etc.), together with Dynamic Workflows. It provides automatic input and output file transfer, fault tolerance, resource selection and configuration through scripting (Javascript, Ruby, Python), multi-core and topology control.

ProActive Cloud & Grid IaaS:

- New lightweight REST API for accessing the server
- Improvements and bug fixes related to the server reliability and better node management
- Better logging on remote nodes

The ProActive Cloud & Grid IaaS Server is the software for coupling distributed resources in order to solve large-scale problems, using desktops, servers, clusters and clouds.

As always, all products within the suite are fully compatible and provide a very comprehensive Open Source solution for Grid and Cloud computing.
