FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
StackIQ Announces Release of StackIQ Enterprise HPC for High Performance Computing Clusters
Company Aligns HPC and Big Data Products Providing a Comprehensive Enterprise Cluster Management Solution for Computing and Data
San Diego, CA – November 12, 2012 – StackIQ today announced the immediate availability of StackIQ Enterprise HPC, the newest addition to their comprehensive cluster management product line. Powered by Rocks+, and building on StackIQ’s successful Enterprise Data offering, the new product provides the very latest in HPC cluster management software.
StackIQ has updated their Rocks+ HPC product to embrace the many enterprise-grade capabilities already available in their Enterprise Data solution. Customers familiar with the company’s Rocks+ HPC product will be delighted to know that the new software is a direct upgrade of their previous release — with several new and enhanced capabilities.
StackIQ Enterprise HPC is based on the latest enterprise grade Linux — Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS 6.3 — and features a new easier to use graphical user interface, while retaining the powerful command line interface Rocks+ power users know and love.
In addition to the new GUI, nearly every module has been updated, from the HPC Roll (which contains a preconfigured OpenMPI environment), to the Intel, Dell, Univa Grid Engine (UGE), Moab, Mellanox, Open Grid Scheduler / Grid Engine (GE), and CUDA Rolls.
Administrators will find it easier to track cluster health using new advanced cluster diagnostics tools, while developers will find it easier than ever to develop and debut Rolls using features like the filtered “profiles” tab in the GUI. StackIQ also added advanced firewall configuration to enhance the security of HPC clusters, making them more robust and able to be integrated into today’s enterprise data center environments.
“We are thrilled to bring this major update to our HPC customers in time for the annual SC12 conference,” said Tim McIntire, President and co-founder of StackIQ. “By bringing the enterprise features of our Enterprise Data product to the HPC products, we’ve improved the HPC product, while making it easier for those building hybrid HPC/Hadoop clusters to get their work done.”
