Concurrent Computer Corporation has announced the availability of RedHawk Cluster Manager software for its line of commercial off-the-shelf X-86 based systems including iHawk multiprocessor systems and ImaGen visual servers.
RedHawk Cluster Manager includes a user interface to utilize and manage a cluster’s full capabilities. It also includes a mechanism for network booting multiple nodes with the same version of RedHawk Linux, Concurrent’s real-time operating system compatible with Red Hat enterprise Linux.
It contains grid engine, an open source batch-queuing system developed by Sun Microsystems, that manages and schedules the allocation of distributed resources such as processors, memory, disk space and software licenses.
RedHawk Cluster Manager companion products include RedHawk global file system -a common storage file system, high-availability NFS – a provider of components needed for a resilient file system under Concurrent RedHawk Linux, and OpenFabrics enterprise distribution – a collection of software components intended for use on a computer cluster constructed as an InfiniBand network.
Gary Beerman, director of real-time marketing at Concurrent, said: More and more of our customers are taking advantage of the economics of clustering, yet need to maintain real-time response and be easy to use. We designed RedHawk cluster manager software environment to take on that challenge head on.
