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.

Leading Tax and Forensic Accounting Firm Gettry Marcus Discusses the Timing of Year-End Bonuses for Tax Purposes

Woodbury, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Leading accounting and business valuation Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C., discusses various methods to time year-end bonuses for tax purposes.

Taxpayers generally prefer to accelerate deductions to reduce their current year income and taxes. In some situations, the tax code's accounting rules allow an accrual-basis employer to deduct a year-end employee bonus in the current year, even though the bonus will not be paid until the following year. A recent IRS Chief Counsel memorandum (FAA 20134301F) highlights some of the pitfalls that can affect when bonus compensation is deductible.

Accrual Method

Under the accrual-method of accounting (in contrast to the cash-method of accounting), a liability is incurred, and can be deducted, in the year in which:

1.    All the events have occurred that establish the fact of the liability;

2.    The amount of the liability can be determined with reasonable accuracy; and

3.    Economic performance has occurred.

The first factor, the all-events test, is met when the event fixing the liability occurs and payment is unconditionally due. Although an expense may be deductible before it is payable, liability must be firmly established. The "fact of liability" depends on whether legal rights or obligations exist as of the close of the year, not the probability that the rights will arise in the future.

Bonus Plans

An employer may establish an arrangement or plan that will pay a bonus to its employees in the succeeding year, based on an evaluation of current year performance.

Performance could be determined by objective factors, such as numerical goals set for the company or the employee. These bonuses may be deductible in the earlier year even though the employee, who must figure taxes on the cash method, won't need to recognize the income until it is paid. Or performance may be based on more subjective factors, such as an individual performance appraisal or the employer's discretion. These bonuses may be deductible in the later year. The requirements for awarding the bonus must be scrutinized, to determine when the liability becomes certain.

Is the liability deductible?

The IRS has stated that a bonus can be deducted in the current year if, under a bonus plan, the employee is notified in the current year the employee will receive a bonus, even though the bonus is not calculated or paid until the following year. An employer's bonus liability that is ascertainable by a fixed standard, such as a percentage of profits at the close of the year, accrues and is deductible in the current year even though the computations are not made until the following year.

For information about instances when a bonus cannot be accrued or employers may be denied a deduction in the current year, read the Gettry Marcus tax update.

Ace Computers Delivers Custom High Performance Computing to Leading Physics Analyst


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

Ace Computers, one of the finest custom technology manufacturers in the U.S., has been tagged by a leading computational physics analysis organization to provide custom high performance computers including core clusters, visualization post-processing machines, development workstations, networking, and storage.

Ace Computers CEO John Samborski said, “They chose us because we work closely with companies, like Intel, that they respect and that we are cost competitive. We are on the same page, which is the basis for a close collaborative relationship and they trust us to provide exactly what they want.”

The organization provides computational physics analysis, such as fluid dynamics, shock wave physics, and structural mechanics, to support the defense and automotive industries. They maintain a 5,000-CPU parallel supercomputer system capable of conducting a massive number of large-scale computations annually. The organization also develops prototype hardware for incorporation into existing and emerging weapon systems.

As a test, the organization first ordered an Intel-based HPC 584 core cluster with QDR IB from Ace Computers. Once they were satisfied, they initiated a full-scale purchase. Among the many benefits the organization cited of working with a smaller technology manufacturer are that they really get to know each client’s business and they are accessible. They also noted that Ace Computers is highly experienced, competent, and has a good reputation. The organization’s CEO added that he has recommended Ace Computers many times because of the value and service—which is just about everything that most people are looking for—and so hard to find--- in a custom technology manufacturer.

Samborski said, “It’s the ability level of our employees that makes us so successful. Our clients have good reason to trust us because we have a good track record. There are not that many companies that can design and implement high level data centers.”

Leading Walk in Bathtubs And Handicap Shower eCommerce Provider Announces Improved Functionality to Their Website


New York, NY (PRWEB) July 01, 2013

National bathtub supplier, Aging Safely Baths announces improved functionality to their walk in bathtubs ecommerce shopping cart website. This unique platform allows visitors from all over the United States and Canada to purchase walk in tubs from a computer. The company has walk in bathtub and wheelchair access shower consultants that can provide detailed information on the specialized products offered.

The bathroom can sometimes be an obstacle course, especially for the elderly or someone with a disability. Walk in tubs and roll in showers may be a better alternative for some bathers. Several of the bathtubs offered can even come with warm air hydrotherapy. This incredible feature is completely natural and fills the bathtub with tiny air bubbles that massage the body. There are multiple settings in which the bather can adjust the pressure from low, medium to high.

Water hydrotherapy is also an option on most tubs offered by Aging Safely Baths. This type of jetting system is different from air hydrotherapy. The water jets are very similar to what one would find in a traditional hot tub. The jets force out pressurized water to massage the bathers body. Depending upon the bathers particular needs, they can choose air jets, water jets or dual jetting. This new site improvement makes it easier for shoppers to find the options they are looking for in a hydrotherapy walk in bathtub.

According to Aging Safely, the air hydro-therapy is a favorite due to a couple factors. Typically the air jets arent as aggressive as the water jets. Secondly, the air jets dont utilize the bathwater. No water is forced out of an air hydrotherapy system, its only air that comes through check valves. Air jets typically are considered the more hygienic of the two types of jets. However shoppers can add accessories such as ozone sterilization and UV lighting to the systems as well to help clean the jetting pipes of their walk in tub.

The website improvement also includes new detailed information on walk in bathtubs, wheelchair access showers, wheelchair access transfer bathtubs and hydrotherapy. In addition, the site boasts new navigational graphics to assist customers in finding the features and options they want in a step in tub. Almost all of the bathroom products offered can be custom ordered and shipped nationally. Nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals and homeowners are encouraged to contact a representative for a no obligation consultation today.

VibrAlign Introduces the Fixturlaser NXA Pro Laser Shaft Alignment System Featuring Industry Leading Innovations for Greater Ease of Use and Accuracy


Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

The new Fixturlaser NXA Pro laser-based shaft alignment tool utilizes the latest technology in digital signal processing, as well as other innovations, to provide faster and even more intuitive operation, but with advanced functions and capabilities.

"A revolution in usability" says Elos Fixturlaser's CEO Hans Svensson about the new high-end system for precision shaft alignment, the Fixturlaser NXA Pro. "If we can provide the ultimate shaft alignment system when it comes to usability, we will help thousands of companies worldwide to become more efficient, reducing waste of both components and energy. We believe strongly that if all rotating equipment in the world were aligned within specifications we would have a much healthier environment. An alignment system that is as easy to use as the Fixturlaser NXA Pro will pave way for this result."

The new Fixturlaser NXA Pro alignment system replaces the Fixturlaser XA Professional system, incorporating numerous innovations and improvements. The innovations start with a new display unit with a 6.5inch touch screen with video game style realistic graphics and include a completely redesigned set of transmitter/detectors.

A MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) gyroscope in the display unit powers the new OmniView function. With OmniView, the screen display changes in real time to always show the machine being aligned from the same viewing angle as seen by the operator, i.e., the system logs the users position and keeps track of it in relation to the machine. No other laser alignment system can do this.

The new sensors use a 2nd generation scientific grade CCD technology with 'best-in-class' accuracy as well as increased reliability. Resolution of the 30 millimeter vertical sensors is equivalent to the vertical resolution of ultra high-definition television. Updated algorithms improve the sensors performance for linearity, sidespot and dirt rejection, and ambient light filtration.

The redesigned sensors now offer the smallest form factor on the market, with batteries and Bluetooth communication built-in, providing for easier access on machines with limited space. The new high performance inclinometers incorporated into the sensors have 2.5 times higher accuracy and 10 times higher resolution than the previous generation. In addition to the new inclinometers, the sensors also have built-in MEMS gyroscopes, allowing the system to track shaft rotation angle, even when placed in the vertical orientation required for performing a vertical shaft alignment. No other laser alignment system can do this.

Power management has been completely redesigned for the new NXA Pro to provide the industrys best operating times while using 40% less power. The system operates, under continuous use, for up to 10 hours between charges. (The sensors can continuously measure for 17 hours without charging.) Also included is an advanced 1-hour quick-charge feature.

Reporting and data management has also been updated. Reports can easily be downloaded to a USB drive.

The Fixturlaser NXA Pro continues to support the Verti-Zontal Compound Move
