and IBM have teamed up to optimize the Spartan computational engine for
IBM's scalable pSeries servers. Including the highly flexible Spartan
for Windows graphical user interface remotely submitting to Spartan's
compute engine on IBM's powerful eServer pSeries line will offer maximum
molecular modeling performance, access, and flexibility.
Spartan is already running on IBM's IntelliStation and ThinkPad products,
and it is expected that this alliance will extend to include development
for the Spartan for Windows application remotely submitting to Spartan's
compute engine optimized for IBM's eServer Linux Cluster offerings as
Wavefunction is pleased to increase its Spartan licensing to include supporting
solutions on the high-performance hardware offered through IBM's Life
About Wavefunction, Inc.
Wavefunction, Inc. was founded in 1991 on the basis of a single ideal;
that molecular modeling software should be powerful enough for industrial
and academic research while remaining both affordable and easy to use.
This vision was first realized in the form of Spartan for UNIX workstations--now
used in thousands of research and educational facilities--and has since
been expanded to include Windows, Linux, and Macintosh desktop systems.
But what is Spartan? At its core, Spartan is a seamless integration of
computational modeling tools ranging from molecular mechanics to quantum
methods such as semi-empirical, ab initio, and density functional theory.
This core functionality is augmented by the ability to perform transition
state searches, develop combinatorial libraries, and compare molecular
using spreadsheets and 2D and 3D graphs. Put together behind the industry's
best graphical interface, and you have an unparalleled research and education
