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.

Pigeon Point Systems™ Announces the Introduction of the Next Generation of Its Successful IPM Sentry™ Shelf Management Mezzanine (ShMM) Product Line

Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2005

Pigeon Point Systems™, the leading supplier of shelf and board management solutions for AdvancedTCA®, announces the introduction of the next generation of its successful IPM Sentry™ Shelf Management Mezzanine (ShMM) product line. Known as the IPM Sentry ShMM-500, it offers a dramatic performance boost over the market-leading ShMM-300 to provide faster shelf and board start-up and event processing, more responsive interaction with external system managers and the capacity to host layered applications.

The ShMM-500 is a member of Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry family of hardware and software products that enable cost-effective, interoperable management of open modular platforms based on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) standard. Using IPM Sentry components, developers of AdvancedTCA and CompactPCI® products can quickly and efficiently incorporate compliant, competitive and interoperable management solutions. More than forty-five companies around the world, including Motorola and Sun Microsystems, are already taking advantage of IPM Sentry components at the shelf level, board level or both.

Using the new MIPS-32 based AMD “Alchemy” Au1550 System-on-a-Chip (SOC), the ShMM-500 boasts a 7x CPU speed enhancement, 4x SDRAM capacity boost and 2x Flash capacity increase, compared to the ShMM-300. In addition, the ShMM-500 includes hardware and firmware support for reliable remote upgrades to its firmware. When this feature is configured, if a firmware upgrade attempt fails, hardware automatically falls back to a redundant copy of the firmware.

The ShMM-500, with its SO-DIMM form-factor, is fully backward-compatible with the ShMM-300 and can be used as a drop-in replacement in existing systems. The ShMM-500’s small size and low power dissipation of less than 5 Watts means that it can be mounted in a number of locations and orientations within a subrack.

“Sun is taking an aggressive approach in developing and deploying an advanced ATCA blade server offering, leveraging our successful cPCI and cPSB Netra products,” said Raju Penumatcha, vice president of Netra Systems and Networking (NSN), Sun Microsystems. “Pigeon Point Systems’ industry-leading ShMM technology ensures that we can deliver widely used, compliant and interoperability-tested shelf management facilities. The dramatically increased capacity of the ShMM-500 allows it to host our standards-based Managed Object Hierarchy software, creating a redundant, highly reliable ATCA system management architecture that reduces operation, administration and maintenance (OAM) development costs and time to market.”

“The introduction of this higher performance shelf manager demonstrates the benefits of having an ecosystem of innovative companies collaborating around industry standards such as AdvancedTCA,” said John Fryer, director of marketing, Embedded Communications Computing Group, Motorola. “These companies provide key building blocks for our Application-Enabling Platforms that give leading telecom equipment manufacturers faster time-to-market, lower cost and investment protection for their next-generation products.”

For new designs, the ShMM-500 enables additional features such as Ethernet connections to both redundant AdvancedTCA base hub boards in a shelf, resulting in better availability for the shelf manager function. Like all the IPM Sentry ShMM products, the ShMM-500 is also available in an IPM Sentry Shelf Management Starter Kit to help OEMs integrate ShMM technology into their own shelves. The Starter Kit includes schematics, bench-top hardware and complete product support to build ShMM-500-based AdvancedTCA Shelf Managers to suit specific applications and shelf designs.

OEM 1,000-unit pricing for the ShMM-500 is $ 350. The Starter Kit is priced at $ 5,000. Production deliveries of the ShMM-500 are scheduled for late Q1, 2005.

Pigeon Point Systems™ Announces Availability of Solutions for the Management Controllers on AdvancedMC Carriers, Modules

Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2005

Pigeon Point Systems™, the leading supplier of shelf and board management solutions for AdvancedTCA® and AdvancedMC™, announces the immediate availability of complete, fully compliant solutions for the management controllers on AdvancedMC (AMC) carriers and modules.

The reference designs and corresponding firmware implement a carrier IPM controller (carrier IPMC) for AMC carrier boards and a module management controller (MMC) for AMC modules. The reference designs, known as BMR-AVR-AMCc for AMC carriers and BMR-AVR-AMCm for AMC modules, are based on Atmel AVR microcontrollers and are the first such solutions to comply with PICMG AMC.0 R1.0, the recently adopted Advanced Mezzanine Card base specification.

The BMR-AVR-AMCc reference design augments the BMR-AVR-ATCA reference design for ATCA IPM controllers to handle the extra responsibilities of an AMC carrier IPMC. For instance, a carrier IPMC must represent its installed AMCs to the shelf manager of the AdvancedTCA shelf in which the carrier is installed, including all the sensors the AMCs define.

The BMR-AVR-AMCm reference design implements the MMC that is required on every AMC. In addition to the PICMG-defined MMC features, the reference design includes numerous extensions, such as the IPM Sentry reliable firmware upgrade architecture, which stores two copies of the controller firmware. If something goes wrong during a firmware upgrade, the controller automatically falls back to the previous version. This is a critical feature for most high availability applications, such as in telecom. The BMR-AVR-AMCm reference design can also be used in a new PICMG architecture currently under development, called MicroTCA™ that uses standard AMCs.

To further reduce time to market for AMC products, Pigeon Point Systems also offers AMC-oriented editions of the IPM Sentry Board Management Starter Kit. The BMR-AVR-AMCc Starter Kit Add-on augments the BMR-AVR-ATCA Starter Kit to support a benchtop carrier IPMC and two MMCs along with a benchtop shelf manager, and includes additional schematics and firmware covering the hardware and software aspects of a carrier IPMC. Similarly, the BMR-AVR-AMCm Starter Kit provides a comprehensive solution for rapid and cost-effective implementation of an MMC, including benchtop hardware, schematics, firmware, and firmware development tools. Both Starter Kits come with a year of technical support and a review of the management controller schematic by Pigeon Point Systems after the reference design has been integrated into a customer’s board.

“We have successfully used both the IPM Sentry BMR-AVR-AMCc carrier and BMR-AVR-AMCm module reference designs,” said Jeff Durst, director of product marketing for Artesyn Communication Products. “Our experience with the compliance, interoperability, and quality of Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry reference designs has been excellent. Our first AMC product, the IPM Sentry-managed Kosai™PM AMC CPU module, was part of the first demonstrations of MicroTCA at SUPERCOMM 2005 in June.”

“As an early adopter of Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry reference designs, Interphase was able to accelerate our initial entry into the ATCA market as well as our first AdvancedMC mezzanine products,” said Felix Diaz, chief technical officer and vice president of engineering of Interphase. “Our first AdvancedMC mezzanines, the iSpan® T1/E1/J1 multi-protocol communications controller and SlotOptimizer™ quad-port Gigabit Ethernet module, were featured in MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA applications at SUPERCOMM 2005 in June. We’ve been impressed with the IPM Sentry MMC solution’s compliance and robustness, and are pleased to partner with Pigeon Point Systems for this functionality.”

The BMR-AVR-AMCc and BMR-AVR-AMCm solutions are members of Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry family of hardware and software products that enable cost-effective, interoperable management of open modular platforms based on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) standard. Using IPM Sentry components, developers of AdvancedTCA, AdvancedMC and CompactPCI® products can quickly and efficiently incorporate compliant, competitive, and interoperable management solutions into their systems. More than 55 companies worldwide employ Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry components at the shelf level, board level, or both.

The BMR-AVR-AMCc Starter Kit Add-on costs $ 7,500. The BMR-AVR-AMCm Starter Kit costs $ 15,000. Both kits are available now.
