Platform dives into Intel's world of clusters

Well-stacked

Sponsored: Creating the Storage Advantage

Canada’s Platform Computing has signed up to Intel’s Cluster Ready program and claims to be first to market with a commercial stack that has been certified under the scheme.

It will be pitching its Platform Open Cluster Stack (OCS) stack at OEMs, saying it enables them to bundle together easy-to-use clusters. The stack is designed to simplify the installation, deployment and management of Linux clusters, and will be backed with 24x7 global support. If it does what it says on the tin, the world can look forward to a whole new class of HPC customers.

Platform already has relationships with IBM, HP, and Dell, which was kind enough to lend a canned executive quote for the announcement.

Intel’s Cluster Ready programme provides a set of minimum standards for hardware and software cluster components, as well as a register of components and a certification tool.®
