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.
