ONAMA: A Quantum Leap in High Performance Computing
The growth of serial and High Performance Computing (HPC) applications presents the challenge of porting of scientific and engineering applications. A number of key issues and trends in High Performance Computing will impact the delivery of breakthrough science and engineering in the future. ONAMA was developed to cope with increasing demands for HPC. ONAMA, which means a new beginning, is a desktop based Graphical User Interface which is developed using C and GTK. It aims to satisfy the research needs of academic institutions. ONAMA is a comprehensive package, comprising of applications covering many engineering branches. ONAMA provides tools that have a close affinity with practical simulation, thus making the learning process for students more applied. Most of the software tools and libraries are open source and supported on Linux, thereby promoting the use of open source software. It also provides tools to the researchers to solve their day-to-day as well as long term problems accurately in lesser time. The Execution Model of ONAMA serves to execute engineering and scientific applications either in sequential or in parallel on Linux computing clusters.
