Streamline Your HPC Setup with Intel Cluster Checker

“Understanding a cluster can be complex if tools are not available such as Intel Cluster Checker. Think of how many times users complain that their applications are not runing with the expected performance and how long it takes system administrators to diagnose the issue. With Intel Cluster Checker, diagnosing and debugging of these issues is easier and less complex. By usingthis tool, customers will be more statisfied and a higher return on the investment will be realized.”

The 3 Types of Cloud Computing for HPC Systems Management

Three types of clouds have been developed: public clouds, private clouds and hybrid clouds. We continue our insideHPC series of features exploring new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article explores the three types of cloud computing, as well as how cloud computing can work to reduce CAPEX. 

Clusters & Cloud Computing: Speeding up HPC Systems Management

We continue our insideHPC series of features exploring new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article focuses on how clustering servers and utilizing cloud computing can help your enterprise achieve more flexibility and speed — as well as improve HPC systems management.

Diagnose Cluster Health with Intel® Cluster Checker

Intel® Cluster Checker, distributed as part of Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2018 Cluster Edition, provides a set of system diagnostics and analysis methods in a single tool to assist managing clusters of any size. “Think of Intel Cluster Checker as a clinical system that detects signs that issues affecting the health of the cluster exist, diagnoses those issues, and suggests remedies. Using common diagnostic tools signs that may indicate symptoms leading to a diagnosis and a possible solution.”

Clusters for Dummies: IBM Platform

Clustering may sound exotic, it isn’t. Cluster technology relies on fast networks and some clever software to schedule and manage big, complex computing jobs on relatively inexpensive server and networking technology. Major players in industries from pharmaceuticals to oil and gas exploration to chip design bet their bottom lines on clusters and they win big. You can do likewise.
