Over at the HPE Blog, Bill Mannel writes that new HPE Performance Cluster Manager can help you reduce the time and resources spent administering HPC systems.

Managing HPC clusters can be challenging. Especially when you have to deal with the ever-growing large scale systems with thousands of nodes which means you need to monitor and manage more and more components. Your system administrators need a system management solution to allow them to manage even very complex HPC installations easily and quickly. You need to keep the system maintenance events to a minimum so that the system is in production to accommodate the requirements of your users’ workloads. Simply put, you need a flexible easy-to-use system management solution to keep your systems running efficiently while maintaining resiliency and security. We believe that the new cluster management solution from HPE delivers just that.

HPE Performance Cluster Manager offers all the functionalities you need to manage you HPE Linux-based clusters, including:

  • Fast system setup from bare-metal
  • Comprehensive hardware monitoring and management
  • Image management
  • Software updates
  • Power management

The software can manage your HPC systems of any size—from a single node to theoretically up to 100,000 nodes and continuing to scale to exascale-sized clusters. By using HPE Performance Cluster Manager, you are able to reduce the time and resources spent administering HPC systems which means you can lower total cost of ownership, increase productivity and achieve better return on your HPE hardware investments.

HPE Performance Cluster Manager combines capabilities of two existing HPE system management solutions: HPE SGI Management Suite for HPE SGI 8600 systems (formerly known as SGI Management Suite) and HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility.

HPE Performance Cluster Manager supports the combined HPE and SGI installed base of customers using HPE Apollo, HPE SGI 8600, HPE ProLiant, HPE Moonshot, SGI ICE X, SGI ICE XA and SGI Rackable systems. Next month, we are adding support for HPE Apollo 70 systems with 64-bit Arm processors.

If you are a customer with an active HPE Pointnext support contract for HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility or HPE SGI Management Suite, you can upgrade to HPE Performance Cluster Manager at no charge.

The HPE Performance Cluster Management software will be on display at ISC 2018 in Frankfurt. Please visit HPE at booth #E-1030 to learn more.
