TORONTO, May 14 -- Platform Computing has launched
Platform Manager 5.7, the company's premier release of the product
formerly known as Scali Manage, which it acquired from Scali Inc. in
October 2007. In line with company strategy, Platform has also
announced the integration of this cluster management product with its
industry leading workload management software, Platform LSF. This
integrated offering will enable high-performance computing (HPC)
customers to leverage a single enterprise solution for both cluster and
Platform Computing, the global leader in HPC management software,
delivers solutions that accelerate compute and data intensive
applications, and manage cluster and grid systems. The company's
strategy is to offer the entire suite of HPC management software for
industries such as electronics, industrial manufacturing, financial services, life sciences, oil & gas, and government & education.
Platform's solutions enable organizations to improve time-to-results
and reduce computing costs.
Platform Manager 5.7 supports small and large clusters. It reduces
the complexity of cluster management by supporting deployment,
configuration, administration, monitoring and reporting. The
simplification of cluster management reduces cost of ownership and
accelerates time to production, maximizes system uptime and reduces
problem resolution time. Platform Manager 5.7 is designed for
multi-vendor Linux HPC environments and gives organizations the
flexibility to choose from a wide variety of systems from multiple
"Platform Computing continually strives to offer customers the most
efficient and cost effective HPC management solutions," said Jingwen
Wang, vice president of products at Platform Computing. "With the huge
growth in cluster computing, managing HPC systems is increasingly
important to controlling costs. We see Platform Manager adding value to
not only our own HPC customers but to any organization using workload
management software or managing clusters and grids."
"Platform Manager provides our lab with a rapid, consistent, and
simplified automated cluster management tool," said Dr. Duncan Tooke,
High Performance Computing Services Group of the Rutherford Appleton
Laboratory, STFC, UK. "As a fully integrated solution, Platform Manager
not only simplifies cluster management but has also allowed us to
quickly scale out our grid."
