The system enables customers to deploy high performance computing cluster environments
Platform Computing, a provider of high performance computing management software, has released the Platform HPC for ICE-Linux, a system developed with HP, which combines the power of platform computing with the multi-systems management of HP Insight Control suite for Linux.
Platform Computing said that the system will allow customers to deploy high performance computing (HPC) cluster environments using a software that supports superior performance, growth and scalability while reducing cost and complexity.
Platform Computing also said that Platform HPC for ICE-Linux offers HP ProLiant and HP BladeSystem customers and resellers a path for incorporating HPC into IT infrastructures. The system integrates a combination of Platform, HP and open source technologies, and builds on the established HP ProLiant system management technology, HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) for monitoring and provisioning capabilities.
HP SIM allows unified infrastructure management across HP platforms and provides HP ICE-Linux with the basis for deep insight, precise control and ongoing optimization for expanding physical and virtual Linux environments, according to Platform Computing.
Tripp Purvis, vice president of business development at Platform Computing, said: The combined solution provides customers and resellers with the ability to create a flexible solution for delivering and managing HPC clusters. Platform HPC for ICE-Linux provides customers with tangible cost and productivity benefits.
