We’ve designed and built Platform HPC specifically for organizations that need small or medium-sized clusters. Starting with an easy one-step installation, Platform HPC automates many of the complex tasks of managing a cluster, including provision and patch nodes, integrate applications, and troubleshooting user problems, saving time and hassles for part-time IT administrators. A web interface also makes remote administration a reality for users. As long as administrator can access a web browser that can reach the head node of the HPC cluster, he can easily monitor, manage and troubleshoot problems.
Then again, the tools and technologies included in Platform HPC were originally designed for large scale environments. So under the hood, those tools are powerful, scalable, and highly customizable. For those running a small cluster, whether or not they are rapidly growing, Platform HPC would be their best choice now and for the future.
