We are pleased to announce today that MathWorks and AccelerEyes have started working together to provide the best overall solution for GPU computing in MATLAB® through the Parallel Computing Toolbox™ and MATLAB Distributed Computing Server™ from MathWorks. This new relationship will result in great product updates for end users of the Parallel Computing Toolbox™ and MATLAB Distributed Computing Server™.
Since 2007, AccelerEyes has been a leader in developing GPU software, including Jacket. AccelerEyes has sold Jacket as a 3rd-party add-on to the MathWorks MATLAB® product. Effective today, AccelerEyes will discontinue new Jacket product sales. All existing Jacket license holders will continue to receive support and maintenance from AccelerEyes for 1 year. All existing Jacket licenses are perpetual and will not expire. Future GPU computing updates will be available in MathWorks’ products, providing a path to ease the transition for Jacket customers.
AccelerEyes will continue to build great GPU and accelerator software libraries. With this transition, we will be able to focus even more energy into the free and premium versions of the ArrayFire library for C, C++, and Fortran, as well as continue to provide developer services for code acceleration. We have an ambitious roadmap of features planned for ArrayFire in 2013 and look forward to rolling those out to the AccelerEyes developer community.
We believe this is an exciting announcement for everyone, and we look forward to delivering even more productivity and speed to GPU developers through this change of focus and collaboration.
