Intel Parallel Studio

Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition software package is primary used for parallel software development for multi-core systems, like HPC cluster. Intel tools may be used for developing high-performance software also for personal computers. Intel C++, Fortran compilers, as well as Intel MKL math libraries are widely used for developing not only parallel but serial programs and also tuned for Intel processors.

The Intel Parallel Studio is available for non-commercial purposes and may only be installed on personal computer by RTU employees and doctoral students. The software has also been installed on the RTU HPC cluster allowing remote working and parallel code testing.

License term: perpetual.

Intel online help: inactive.

User groups: employees, doctoral students, and HPC users.


For research. To apply for Academic license, fill in the application form. License may only be acquired by RTU employees and doctoral students.

After registration users will be given instructions regarding file downloading and installation.

For studies. It is not possible to install the software on classroom computers.

For students. It is not possible to install the software on a personal computer; however, it is possible to use the software for research purposes via the RTU HPC cluster.

For HPC users. Registered cluster users may use the software on the cluster, the application form is available here.

Computer requirements

Hardware and OS. Other requirements are listed here.

Network connection. Intel Parallel Studio license is stored on the central server of RTU data centre, thus computer must be connected to RTU network (Floating Network license) during software installation and use.

For using outside RTU, like at home, Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to RTU network is necessary (more information is available here).
