Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit

Take your HPC, enterprise, AI, and cloud applications to the max — with fast, scalable, and portable parallel code

Intel® oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit is a comprehensive suite of development tools that make it fast and easy to build modern code that gets every last ounce of performance out of the newest Intel® processors in high-performance computing (HPC) platforms. Intel® oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit simplifies creating code with the latest techniques in vectorization, multi-threading, multi-node, memory optimization, and accelerator offloading.

Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit helps developers, researchers, and data scientists confidently develop performant code quickly and correctly, and scale compute-intensive workloads that exploit cutting-edge features Intel CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and HPC clusters. It includes industry-leading C++ and Fortran compilers, standards-driven OpenMP support, MPI library and benchmarks, and advanced analysis tools for design, MPI, cluster tuning, and cluster health checking to enhance uptime and productivity.

Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit includes all the Intel compilers (C / C ++, Fortran, DPC ++ etc.) and multiple platform support (Windows, Linux and Mac OSX) to give you more flexibility for the future.

Note: The tools that comprised Intel Parallel Studio XE are now integrated into Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit. To upgrade your Intel Parallel Studio XE license, contact Alfasoft for oneAPI Promotion Upgrade Price.

oneAPI licensing

The licensing and the naming of the editions has changed with the launch of oneAPI.

Supported platforms
Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit is offered with support for Windows, Linux and Mac OS. Support for all OS are included with each license.

Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit is offered with support for Fortran, C++ and Data Parallel C++. Support for all described languages are included with each license.

Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit is offered in two editions: Single-Node and Multi-Node.

The target platforms for development and deployment can range from a workstation to a multi-node cluster requiring different support efforts. Choose the paid product with support that best fits the use model targeted:

• Intel® oneAPI Base and HPC Toolkit Single-Node: Target platform of shared memory systems including PCs, laptops, or workstations.

• Intel® oneAPI Base and HPC Toolkit Multi-Node: Target platform of shared memory systems such as PCs, laptops, workstations, or distributed memory high-performance compute clusters.

License Types

Intel oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit is offered in different license types
Named user
Concurrent 2-seat: any 2 concurrent users / up to 10 registered developers
Concurrent 5-seat: any 5 concurrent users / up to 25 registered developers
o No more Floating 1-seat option
o FlexLM will no longer be included

Users must be compliant with Intel’s EULA and purchase the number of seats to match the number of users who need to use the software concurrently

Academic – for degree-granting institutions only; colleges and universities who teach student in higher education towards earning a degree
Commercial – for all other users, including government and non-profit institutions who are not degree-granting

Intel oneAPI Network licensing has changed

Network licenses (concurrent) are still available as 2 and 5 concurrent user licenses, but these are defined differently for oneAPI:

Maximum of 10 developers: 2 Concurrent users
Maximum of 25 developers: 5 Concurrent users

I.e. for oneAPI, a maximum number of developers is set for the network licenses, who can then be registered in the IRC and are entitled to request Intel technical support in the confidential Intel Online Service Center. FlexLM is no longer included for the network licenses (as was the case with IPSXE). Licensing and usage restrictions now result from the legal basis (i.e. the license agreement – EULA).

Converting from Intel Parallel Studio to oneAPI Base and HPC Toolkit

When upgrading, a new serial number is generated for the oneAPI license and the previous IPSXE serial number is marked as “retired”. All IPSXE owners will still be able to use all of their IPSXE tools after the upgrade.

In addition, these IPSXE licenses are in most cases not only extended to include new components, but they also usually gain a complete tool suite including C ++ and Fortran compilers (both!) for an additional operating system.

If you have, for example, IPSXE Composer Edition for Fortran, Windows with active support, as a result of the transition to the Intel® oneAPI Base & HPC Toolkit, you will also receive a license for use under Linux, which then also includes the Intel Fortran Compiler and the MKL for Linux.

Are you a current Intel Parallel Studio XE user? To minimize the cost and make the transition to oneAPI as smooth as possible, contact Alfasoft BEFORE you upgrade your license in IRC.

Upgrade Promotion

Customers who are planning a Support Service Renewal (SSR) of their IPSXE license should check whether a chargeable upgrade to oneAPI is not the cheaper option over an IPSXE support and mainteance renewal. Please contact Alfasoft, to check whether this is the case. Important: An “Upgrade Promotions” offer can only be used as long as your IPSXE license to oneAPI has not been upgraded free of charge. I.e. Specifically: do not follow the link to the free upgrade on IRC, but ask us beforehand if you are considering a SSR of your IPSXE license.

Contact Alfasoft (Adept Scientific) for an offer.

The Next Steps

What do our Customers say about us?

I like thinking back to all the people I’ve worked well with during the year, and you have been particularly helpful throughout.

HM, Durham, UK

Excellent tutor – very clear, very impartial, simply excellent.

I recommend EndNote to all my students who I supervise on dissertations at undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral levels. Sometimes they ask if I get commission for doing this, which I do not. But the software is great, and fantastic time saver when putting journal articles or theses together.

DF, W Yorks, UK

Many thanks for the prompt reply – I went ahead and purchased the download and was able to upgrade as you promised – fantastic service! I shall be recommenting Adept Scientific to anyone who’ll listen to me!
