Downloadable kit simplifies the deployment of Lustre Storage clients across compute nodes
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 15 -- Terascala, Inc., the leading provider of high throughput, high capacity parallel storage appliances, today announced the availability of a new storage client for Platform Computing's Platform Cluster Manager. Organizations can now easily use Platform Cluster Manager to speed and simplify the deployment of Lustre storage clients across multiple compute nodes.
Terascala customers seeking to leverage Platform's HPC cluster management software can obtain the storage client by downloading a kit from Terascala's website.
"Deployment has always been a huge issue for HPC environments, especially in the storage arena. Until now, organizations seeking to deploy new storage initiatives have been slowed due to the inherent complexity of the process," said Rick Friedman, vice president of marketing and product management at Terascala. "Now, our customers can take advantage of Platform Cluster Manager to quickly roll out new storage initiatives and gain the high levels of management, performance and uptime that Platform offers. Platform is a leader in the management space and it makes perfect sense to partner with them as we continue to deliver our parallel storage appliances to the marketplace."
Based on the open source Project Kusu, Platform Cluster Manager is a pre-integrated, vendor certified solution that enables the consistent delivery of scaled-out application clusters. Built using open source components, it includes all the tools required to deploy, run and manage clusters with ease.
"With data stores continuing to grow exponentially within most organizations to provide quick data access and greater processing performance, there is an absolute need in the marketplace for a solution that can combine high capacity storage with cluster management," said Ken Hertzler, vice president of product management, Platform Computing. "Our partnership with Terascala will make the deployment of large HPC storage solutions easier for customers to manage, allowing them to save time and get more out of the systems they have in place."
