Intel® Cluster Ready reduces the complexity of designing, building, and managing high performance clusters. It also ensures that the software stack in a certified cluster fulfills specific requirements, so registered applications will run as expected right out of the box. Many ISVs have already registered their applications, so you can deploy those applications with very little effort, but what about open source applications?

Your hardware vendor may be able to provide the information you need to install and run open source HPC applications. Another great resource is the HPC Advisory Council. The Advisory Council provides best practice recommendations and installation guides for a variety of HPC applications, as well as training opportunities, an online forum for interacting with HPC experts, and cluster resources you can use for testing, optimizing, and benchmarking your applications.

Intel has been working with the HPC Advisory Council to develop best practice recommendations and installation guides for popular open source HPC applications running on Intel Cluster Ready certified systems. Installation guides are available now for Adaptive Mesh Refinement, BQCD, CP2K, CPMD, Espresso, Himeno, LAMMPS, NAMD, NWChem, OpenFOAM, and WRF. If you don’t see the application you’re interested in, stay tuned. More are coming. Or contact the HPC Advisory Council. They’re always looking for input from HPC users.

Update - these installation guides are now available: Amber 11, CESM, GADGET-2, GROMACS, MrBayes, NEMO, Octopus, and OpenMX.
