Abstract:
Nano-Hive brings the power and speed of distributed computing to Nanorex

Nanorex acquires Nano-Hive, adding distributed computing and advanced simulation capability to its molecular engineering platform

Bloomfield Hills, MI | Posted on August 31, 2006

Nanorex today announced a definitive agreement to acquire privately held Nano-Hive LLC, a pioneer and leading developer of distributed molecular simulation software. The acquisition integrates two powerful open source software solutions under the same roof. NanoEngineer-1, developed by Nanorex, is the first computer-aided design (CAD) program for the nanotech age, featuring a 3-D molecular modeling environment with an integrated molecular dynamics engine for simulating the movement and operation of mechanical nanosystems. NanoHive-1 is an advanced nanosystem simulation platform with the ability to integrate several molecular physics plugins and distribute calculations over a network to many computers. Nano-Hive is renamed to NanoHive-1 for consistency with the rest of the Nanorex product line.

"With NanoHive-1's molecular physics plugin architecture and distributed computing power, NanoEngineer-1 users will have even more speed and options at their disposal," said Mark Sims, Nanorex's president. "NanoHive-1 will give our users better-quality simulations faster."

Brian Helfrich, Nano-Hive founder and architect of NanoHive-1, joins the Nanorex team where he continues as the lead architect for NanoHive-1. "The integration of NanoHive-1 and NanoEngineer-1 will provide a powerful computational toolset for nanotech researchers and students," Helfrich said. "While NanoEngineer-1 already has an excellent molecular dynamics simulator, NanoHive-1 enhances it by giving users more options. Now users can run their simulations on a wide variety of computer architectures and handle jobs that would otherwise take too long to complete."
