Rich Brueckner posts on his blog that Sun HPC Software, Linux Edition 2.0 is now out.
It simplifies the deployment of HPC clusters by providing a ready-made framework of software components to use to turn a bare-metal system into a running HPC cluster. It provides software to provision, manage, and operate large scale Linux HPC clusters and serves as a foundation for optional add-ons such as schedulers, like Sun’s Sun Grid Engine, and other components not included with the solution.
The major new features of this release are:
- Support for SLES 10sp2 – a key feature in offering single point of contact support
- Inclusion of Sun supported cluster software, such as:
- Sun Clustertools 8.1 (8.2 will be available in SHSLE 2.0.1, to be released shortly)
- SunStudio 12u1
- Sun Grid Engine 6.2u2 (SGE 6.2u3 will be available also in SHSLE 2.0.1)
The package also includes Lustre 18.104.22.168, new MPI libraries pre-built for Pathscale and SunStudio x86 compilers, and other features. Check out the full story for more.
