PRESS RELEASE

Escalante Beta version

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.
