Compute clusters are fast replacing the legacy shared memory parallel systems that have been the traditional technology used in many high performance applications. Clusters can lower total cost of ownership and time to market by performing simulations even faster than giant supercomputers. Linux compute clusters offer openness, flexibility, low cost, and reliability.

HP is committed to developing and supplying a wide range of Linux-based products and services targeted specifically at the clustering environment. In addition, HP has forged important alliances in both the open source and commercial application communities.

This commitment, coupled with HP's experience and leadership in the HPC market and Linux, is reflected in the Unified Cluster Portfolio, our simple and cost-effective solution for high performance clusters.

With the flexibility of the modular Unified Cluster Portfolio, design and deploy the high performance Linux solution to meet your needs.



Unified Cluster Portfolio Overview:
A comprehensive, modular package of tested and pre-configured hardware, software and services for scalable computation, data management and visualization.

HP ProLiant HPC Partner Software Suite:
The HP ProLiant HPC Partner Software Suite is a software suite of offerings that address customer needs in building and maintaining a high performance computing environment.

HP's ISS High Performance Computing Resource Room (HPCRR):
A service offered to our approved partners and end user customers who need to experiment and design solutions on ProLiant DL and BL servers in a clustered environment based on industry standard Linux offerings from Red Hat and Novell.


HP Message Passing Interface library (HP-MPI):
A high performance and production quality implementation of the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) standard for HP servers and workstations.
The 64-bit Server Resource Center

This comprehensive online resource will help you plan and implement a successful migration to 64-bit server computing based on your specific applications, workloads, IT environment and business drivers. It is divided into four categories:

About 64-bit Server Computing:
Get the facts about the benefits and limitations of 64-bit server computing.

64-bit Server Migration Strategies:
Understand your migration options, so you can reduce your cost and risk, and improve the return on your 64-bit server investment.

64-bit Software Support:
Find out which enterprise applications and operating systems are 64-bit-ready, and learn how you can simplify migration for your custom applications.

64-bit Server Platform Recommendations:
Learn about the key differences between 64-bit server platforms based on the Intel Xeon processor and the Intel Itanium 2 processor, and find out how you can use them most effectively to address your specific application requirements.
