With High Performance Computing becoming mainstream, simplifying the deployment and on-going management of computer clusters is of paramount importance. The administration of Platform Open Cluster Stack (OCS) 5 is so easy a privileged end user can spend their valuable time on more pressing tasks, rather than day to day admin chores typically associated with clusters.
Platform Computing’s Open Cluster Stack (OCS) 5 product family not only provides the capability to rapidly create Intel Cluster Ready certified solutions, considerably reducing operational risk, but it also includes as standard, a powerful, integrated web-based console that helps simplify the tasks of cluster management and monitoring. Better tools translates into better reliability, less time spent learning obscure command line syntax, and more time adding value to the business.
With the click of a mouse, end-users can add or remove nodes, monitor the cluster status, or deploy software packages including software packaged as Kits for Platform OCS 5. In addition, an application-centric web-portal provides access to the integrated workload manager with a simple to use interface that allows users to easily submit and control jobs.
Less time and learning required to administer the cluster; less time required to train users how to submit jobs, and lower error rates and support calls owing to intuitive, self-documenting interfaces. All this wrapped up in a single, integrated Intel Cluster Ready certified solution. Sounds like a “win-win-win” situation!
