Escalante Beta version
31 January 2008
Cluster Resources has finalised the name ‘Moab Cluster Builder’ for its product code named ‘Escalante’ and released its final Beta version of the full HPC-stack deployment solution based on Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.
The out-of-the-box wizard includes the MoabR suite of products with the associated HPC interfaces and installs. It can also calibrate a complete Linux cluster.
In the final Beta, the cluster deployment process has been streamlined and simplified, and includes automated diagnostics. Administrators can add and remove nodes on-the-fly and can build a cluster from a MAC address list, which is a significant timesaving advantage for anyone deploying a cluster with more than a dozen nodes.
The release marks the feature freeze and the stabilisation of the current codebase. A number of beta sites are testing the final Beta.
