HP, the market leader in HPC and Clusters, led the industry in offering standardized and supported cluster building blocks. HP Cluster Platforms capture best practices in terms of management, serviceability and efficiency, and support the latest technology ensuring the best price-performance. HP clusters can be managed by a broad range of cluster management options, both commercial and open source. In addition to HP developed tools, such as HP Cluster Management Utility, HP works with Platform Computing and ClusterCorp to enable qualification of cluster tools on our systems.
HP Cluster Management Utility (CMU)
HP CMU is an efficient and robust tool for the management of HPC clusters and compute farms. A simple graphic interface enables centralized console management, monitoring of cluster-wide and node-specific metrics, and software installation. Through its efficient cloning mechanism, CMU can quickly deploy target images across clusters with 1000s of nodes. With its CMU rapid provisioning and management of multiple images, CMU is ideal for a site with frequent changes to the software configuration across the cluster or on a subset of the cluster. Factory integration of CMU on HP Cluster Platforms is offered worldwide.
Platform HPC Workgroup Edition
This ‘all-in-one suite’ is a combination of a simple to deploy and manage cluster management solution from Platform Computing includes Platform Cluster Manager (PCM), Platform MPI, and Platform LSF Workgroup Edition, available for clusters of up to 32 nodes. PCM enables easy and rapid deployment and administration of an HPC cluster with choice of open source components, fully supported by Platform Computing and qualified on HP systems. Platform LSF Workgroup Edition is Platform’s sophisticated workload scheduler and resource manager. The solution is offered by HP in most countries, and is available from Platform resellers.
Platform Manager is also available on HP Cluster Platforms.
