Platform Computing has released Platform HPC for ICE-Linux, a solution developed with HP, which combines the power of platform computing with the multi-systems management of HP Insight Control suite for Linux (ICE-Linux). The solution will allow customers to deploy HPC cluster environments using an out-of-the-box software solution that supports performance, growth and scalability while reducing cost and complexity.
Platform HPC for ICE-Linux offers HP ProLiant and HP BladeSystem customers and resellers a simple path for incorporating HPC into IT infrastructures. The solution 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 optimisation for expanding physical and virtual Linux environments. Platform HPC for ICE-Linux provides customers with powerful tools to manage the software stack, including a comprehensive toolkit for high performance computing, a workload manager, resource management tools and the remote control and advanced power management functions of ICE-Linux.
