Cluster Resources, Inc. Brings Leading Cluster Workload Management Software to Mac OX C High Performance Computing Environments

Spanish Fork, UT (PRWEB) November 8, 2004 -

— Cluster Resources, Inc. today announced the release of Moab Cluster Suite 4.2 for Mac OS X. It is the first release of Cluster Resources' cluster management suite to support the Mac OS X platform and includes: Moab Workload Manager™, a policy-based workload management and scheduling engine; Moab Cluster Manager™, a graphical cluster administration interface, monitor, and reporting tool; and Moab Access Portal™, an end-user job submission and management portal. Moab Cluster Suite 4.2 also supports Linux and Unix-based server platforms and Mac OS X, Linux, Unix and Windows clients.

Mac OS X and Apple Computer's Xserve hardware continue to see growing success in the High performance computing market with the much publicized success of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University's (Virginia Tech) supercomputer and other leading deployments. High Performance Computing sites are now able to leverage Apple Computer's renowned ease of use and superior price performance with Cluster Resources' cluster management solutions to

achieve new levels of control and efficiency.

“Moab Workload Manager on Mac OS X allows for the management of traditional compute resources, as well as storage, network and licenses. This provides organizations with unparalleled control over how, when and by whom the resources of a cluster are accessed delivering up to 90 to 99 percent utilization.” said David Jackson, Chief Technology Officer of Cluster Resources, Inc. “The Web and desktop GUI interfaces empower administrators with significant management capabilities and enable end-users to submit their own jobs and self-manage their use of the system.”

"With dual G5 processing power and up to 8GB of ECC memory, Xserve G5 is affordable, easy to manage and easy to cluster making it the perfect platform for high performance computing,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “Moab Cluster Suite 4.2 delivers a powerful management suite for complex computational clustering to our customers who benefit from the strong performance of Mac OS X and Xserve G5 servers."

One of the notable sites leading Mac OS X adoption in the cluster and grid space is Virginia Tech. Its System X cluster landed at number three on the Top500 list in November of 2003 and was recently upgraded to an Xserve G5 based cluster.

“We achieved the underlying power required to be near the head of the Top500, and now with the Moab Cluster Suite we have the management and reporting we need to truly harness and control our powerful system,” said Kevin Shinpaugh, Director of Research and Cluster Computing of Virginia Tech. “Accounting for and allocating the millions of CPU hours available per year on System X is much easier now that we have Moab Cluster Suite. The reporting tools of Moab Cluster Manager clearly show us what has been done and Moab Workload Manager lets us express and enforce our rules.”

The Moab suite provides Mac OS X sites with an easy cross-over into the supercomputing arena, as users can engage in high performance computing without wasting time learning to maneuver through a difficult interface.

“Advanced and highly configurable workload management capabilities are essential for our computational science and engineering HPC environment,” said Michael Campbell, HPC Software Administrator at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign). “We have multiple clusters, several hundred users and many research groups that span various departments and universities. This diverse user base ranges from individuals doing thesis work, to class projects, to huge production simulations requiring thousands of processors. The Moab suite provides a means by which these complex needs and changing priorities can be managed relatively easily from a single point of control.”

The Moab Cluster Suite can be used to enforce service level delivery to users, groups, projects or organizational units. Moab's service level enforcement can ensure the right resources are delivered and that response times are optimized. Reports can be generated to accurately monitor usage and can be used for cost sharing or bill-back purposes, using either virtual credits or actual financial charges.

“We wanted to enhance our cluster management as it was quite challenging to coordinate all the different applications, research groups and desired policy settings,” said David Osguthorpe, Director of Computational Biology of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

“Moab Workload Manager lets us set up global, cluster and user based rules and policies and automate them across the entire cluster. Our system is certainly more efficient now and we can give our users a better experience. That means more research gets done, our grant providers will be more pleased and we are better prepared to grow our system and the work that can be accomplished.”

The Moab Cluster Suite 4.2 is available for immediate release. Organizations interested in a free evaluation copy of Moab Cluster Suite or access to Cluster Resources' On-line Demonstration Cluster can visit http://www.clusterresources.com/products/eval.

NCWIT AspireIT Program Brings Girls into Tech during Critical Middle School Years


Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 07, 2013

The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) has launched a new pilot program, NCWIT AspireIT, that addresses the lack of women in technology by actively engaging middle school girls with computing. NCWIT AspireIT pairs female high school and college computing students with local colleges and K-12 education non-profits to create and run technology outreach programs for middle school girls. NCWIT AspireIT is supported by Intel, Northrop Grumman, and Google.

In its 2013-2014 pilot year, NCWIT AspireIT will grant more than $ 100,000 to 24 programs -- including summer camps, after-school programs, clubs, and weekend workshops -- providing more than 25,000 instruction hours to more than 800 girls in 15 states. At full scale, NCWIT AspireIT is on-track to serve more than 8,000 middle school girls per year, providing high-quality, inspiring, computing education and outreach with long-term impact.

"The participation of women in tech is so dismal and the situation so dire that we need a big, bold approach that can scale to the tens of thousands, quickly, said Ruthe Farmer, NCWIT Director of Strategic Initiatives. NCWIT AspireIT has the potential to effectively double the number of girls taking high school technology courses in just a few years.

NCWIT AspireIT capitalizes on a "near-peer" approach, giving middle school girls a hands-on, inspiring introduction to technology from young women just a few years ahead of them in the pipeline. AspireIT participants also join the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Talent Development Initiative, which supports young women through each of the critical transitions along the pathway to a career in technology: from middle to high school, high school to college, college to internships or graduate school, and into the technology workforce.

About NCWIT

The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is a non-profit community of more than 450 universities, companies, non-profits, and government organizations nationwide working to increase womens participation in computing and technology. NCWIT helps organizations more effectively recruit, retain, and advance girls and women in K-12 through college education, and from academic to corporate and startup careers.

Workplace Flexibility Brings Rewards For All at Brilliant Blue Internet Marketing


(PRWEB) August 09, 2013

Providing its team with the choice of onsite or remote work and hours to suit the demands of family life has resulted in high productivity and client satisfaction.

In a recent expansion, six content writers were added to the internet marketing team in March this year. Individually, they bring years of experience from the fields of journalism, public relations, account management and corporate communications.

One thing common to the content marketing team is that all the new writers are women combining the rewards of producing high quality work with an enviable work-life balance.

"When we advertised for content writers I was keen to hear from anyone with good editorial skills and marketing experience. It happened that all those who fit the bill perfectly were women juggling family responsibilities," said Deb Jeffreys, Managing Director.

The writers complement Brilliant Blues established crew of web programmers, web designers, administration and sales staff. Those positions are also made up of women enjoying flexible working hours while putting their professional skills to good use in a dynamic and creative environment.

"A culture of productive collaboration has developed by mixing remote and office-based work," said Jeffreys.

"Its an atmosphere thats good for team camaraderie and very efficient for Brilliant Blue. Its been great for our clients too, because just like them, our focus is always on the outcome of their projects."

Jeffreys acknowledges the reality is that women still prefer working flexible hours. She says the versatile approach taken by Brilliant Blue is highly valued by all.

"Good business leadership now depends on offering flexibility, mutual trust and respect," she said. "Despite the times, women still resist committing to rigid work hours at certain times in their careers. It might be because they have young children, or they might be a carer. They may have other personal priorities and pursuits, such as study or sport, competing for their limited time," she said.

Providing this desirable flexibility means Brilliant Blue Internet Marketing depends on its staff logging on to work in progress from their home offices. The multitude of technology available, such as cloud computing makes it easy to maintain workflow and meet deadlines.

"Were thriving by using remote access to complete assignments during the hours that suit the individual team members lifestyle. It means were easily as efficient as any traditional nine-to-five business. We also pool our talents and networks and regularly share ideas to keep the business moving forward," said Jeffreys.

The Brilliant Blue management style is also far removed from traditional corporate progression pathways, where working shorter hours usually means receiving fewer opportunities.

"Training is available for anyone on the staff who has an interest in learning website construction, SEO or other IT skills we require as the business grows. Offering these advantages means we have a loyal team that shares the business commitment to improving performance and growth," said Jeffreys.

True to its core services of content marketing and SEO, where results are instantly measurable, proof of Brilliant Blues successful flexibility is in its client feedback crediting the agency with consistently high quality that translates to new business.
