PROVO, Utah, September 17, 2008—Cluster Resources, a leading provider of workload- and resource-management software and services for cluster, grid, data center and utility computing environments, will provide Moab Hybrid Cluster on the new Cray CX1 personal supercomputer.
The Cray CX1 personal supercomputer, unveiled by Cray yesterday, is built for offices or other constrained environments and requires neither a dedicated room nor special power sources. It is a versatile cluster with up to eight blades and combines high-performance computing graphics with storage capability. The Cray CX1 system brings simplified job submission and monitoring without sacrificing maximum compute performance and scalability.
The Cray CX1 supercomputer is built to run on either the new Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 or Linux operating systems. However, with the addition of the Moab Hybrid Cluster solution, the Cray CX1 system will be able to run both Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems concurrently, dynamically switching between the two operating systems based on workload, defined policies, and application needs.
“Cluster Resources’ Moab Hybrid Cluster is an established leader for managing, moving, and optimizing workload across Windows, Linux, Unix, and other OS environments,” said Ian Miller, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Cray. “The availability of Moab Hybrid Cluster on the Cray CX1 product is expected to help our customers meet the growing demands for computing heterogeneity.”
“The affordable Cray CX1 supercomputer will make Cray’s renowned supercomputing standards available to more people than ever before,” stated Michael Jackson, president of Cluster Resources. “We are pleased to expand our successful relationship with Cray through the Cray CX1 product line, providing dynamic switching between Windows HPC Server 2008 and Linux. Moab on the Cray CX1 system will increase flexibility and productivity and decrease costs for organizations in scheduling, managing, monitoring, and reporting on Windows, Linux, or mixed-OS workloads.”
Cluster Resources’ applications are installed on some of the largest Cray supercomputers in the world, including the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee—the Department of Energy’s largest science and energy laboratory.
