Platform Computing is pleased to announce the availability of Platform HPC Workgroup Manager v1.1.

Platform HPC Workgroup Manager v1.1 is sold through Platform Computing partners and is for use in clusters containing 32-nodes or less. The bundle includes the following:

Platform Cluster Manager (PCM) v1.2 – Standard Edition
Platform LSF Workgroup 7 Update 5
Platform MPI v5.6.6

The offering includes the following capabilities:

Dynamic Provisioning
Dynamic provisioning provides the ability to dynamically re-purpose nodes within a Platform LSF Workgroup cluster managed by Platform HPC Workgroup Manager.  The re-purposing is driven by LSF Workgroup (or manually) to match the OS configuration of the compute nodes according to the workload requirements. Support configurations include compute nodes configured as dual/multi-boot with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 and Microsoft Windows Server operating systems.

Firstboot scripts
The Firstboot script functionality provides a simple means for IHVs to configure a series of scripts to be executed upon the initial boot of a PCM cluster headnode to prompt for key site specific information including network configuration, Platform LSF Workgroup and Platform MPI licensing.
