InsideHPC broke the news last October that the Rocks Cluster Toolkit guys were working on a port to the Solaris10 platform.  We’ve now uncovered a short blog post from the Sun 4HPCISV blog mentioning that the Rocks on Solaris10 [x86_64] is now available for download.  All you Solaris junkies can now download an alpha copy of the Rocks Cluster Toolkit.  This version includes:

1. A fully automated provisioning of Solaris compute nodes, and support for Thumper/Thor appliances from a Linux frontend.

2. Rolls support

3. MPI support using Sun HPC Cluster Tools

4. Sun Grid Engine support
