PROVO, Utah, November 19, 2008 — Cluster Resources today announced that Moab®—its policy-based intelligence engine that integrates scheduling, managing, monitoring, and reporting of cluster workloads—is now compatible with HP Cluster Management Utility (CMU) software—a provisioning tool used to manage Linux-based nodes in high-performance computing (HPC) clusters.
This joint solution brings added integration and optimization to HPC and satisfies the market need for a more flexible computing platform that adapts, self-optimizes, and delivers resources on demand to meet both the current and future needs of organizations.
Moab+CMU provides automated operating-system installation onto HP hardware to improve cluster efficiency. This solution dynamically changes a cluster’s active version of Linux and installs a different version of Linux on cluster servers based on workload, defined policies, and application needs for both initial deployments and updates.
“Moab+CMU provides a lower-cost, adaptive solution for the broader HPC and data center markets,” said David Jackson, chief technology officer of Cluster Resources. “This combination of Moab’s advanced management intelligence and HP’s provisioning tools provides a flexible computing platform capable of automatically and intelligently handling resources and workload while adapting to real-world disruptions.”
Moab currently works with other HP enterprise provisioning tools such as HP Operations Orchestration, HP Server Automation, and HP Service Manager to provide the most advanced cloud and adaptive data center management available. On the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) supercomputer, these provisioning tools report resource availability, system failures, customer needs, and other critical events to Moab. Moab then intelligently adapts, manages, and optimizes the cloud computing resources in this highly complex environment.
“Customers can maximize HPC investments by leveraging cost-effective, centralized management systems that will improve the scalability and flexibility of their clustered architectures,” said Ed Turkel, product marketing manager, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure organization, HP. “HP’s CMU combined with the Moab policy-based intelligence engine improves Linux cluster efficiency by dynamically optimizing the operating system based on application workload requirements and other key policies.”
