The HP Unified Cluster Portfolio is a comprehensive, modular package of tested and pre-configured hardware, software and services for scalable computation, data management and visualization. It features flexible platforms, a wide range of open source and commercial middleware, and the latest in industry-standard technology-all with the simplicity and affordability of a factory-built, tested, and supported solution.

The Unified Cluster Portfolio provides a common implementation across multiple operating systems and servers based on industry-standard processors (Intel® Xeon™ and AMD Opteron™) and through participation with partners and the open source community.

Reference Stacks provide complete solutions

» HP Cluster Platforms: Flexible configurations from 5 to 1024 nodes, with choice of interconnects:

» Operating environments: Tested and supported on HP Cluster Platforms, optional operating systems include Linux, and Microsoft Windows 2008 (on HP Cluster Platform 3000 and 4000).

» Cluster management: Comprehensive cluster management solutions from HP and its partners, are available installed and ready for deployment. HP Insight Cluster Management Utility (Insight CMU) enables cluster provisioning, management and monitoring, supported by HP across multiple Linux distributions.

» Scalable Data Management: Increases in computational capabilities create larger volumes of data that need to be managed.

» Advanced options such as visualization and accelerators: High performance scientific and engineering applications generate very large data sets that need to be visualized, often interactively with computational jobs. Accelerate computation with GPGPUs and FPGA options.

» HPC application and developments software portfolio: The HP Unified Cluster Portfolio provides a solid, reference platform for developing and deploying applications. HP supports leading applications for all key HPC industry segments, and works closely with its partners and the open source community to ensure the availability of those solutions on our industry-standard HP Cluster Platforms.

» HPC Cluster Services: HP has experience servicing systems, networks, clusters, storage devices, and software for HPC deployments and environments of all sizes. A wide range of service solutions built from standards-based service modules ensure the service coverage and the level of expert assistance desired.
