Platform HPC Enterprise Edition Launched

Application performance is no longer relying on the computer clock speed – parallelization is the only way to dramatically scale application performance. Referred to as a cluster, it is the foundation to scale an application, but unlike an operating system on single machine (i.e., Linux), setting up and using a cluster remains a daunting task for many users. Why? First, there are multiple software components that are required to run the applications in a cluster environment. This includes parallelization libraries (MPI), job distribution workload management, and administrative cluster management. Second, all these components must be integrated to work together. Though they seem to install fine, they often break in production. So, can these software components be packaged, integrated, and tested together up-front to behave more reliably like an operating system?


Pre-assembling cluster software with hardware has been tried in the past by many different user organizations and usually resulted in complicated, time-consuming systems to manage. Platform Computing has taken on this challenge to solve this problem. The launch of Platform HPC Enterprise Edition is a more complete offering, as compared to their previous launch of Platform HPC Workgroup Edition last year. What I like is their unique seamless integration between cluster management and workload management along with their MPI library and system monitoring. In my experience, now both users and administrators can get their job done by interfacing through a single unified web portal. This makes a cluster more like a single operating system. The product’s single install and single user interface makes a highly technical and complex high performance Linux cluster easy to use for the average cluster user.
