IBM Platform Cluster Manager

Managing today’s complex cluster environment is a time-consuming and costly effort for many technical and high performance computing (HPC) data centers. Adding to the challenge is the management of multiple clusters as data centers grow in size. Isolated clusters can create major inefficiencies in a technical computing environment and hinder the ability for organizations that require substantial compute and data processing capabilities to compete. We can help alleviate this complexity with tools for the self service creation and management of flexible clusters.


The Challenge

Complexity hinders competitiveness

Organizations that require increasing amounts of compute and data processing capabilities face challenges in maintaining complex, diverse HPC infrastructures with disparate hardware and software. These companies are looking for an easy-to-use, yet high performance cluster infrastructure management solution to efficiently deploy, manage, and in many cases, consolidate disparate cluster infrastructures and simplify the oversight and maintenance of running their IT environment.


The Solution

Get the most out of your HPC environment

IBM Platform Cluster Manager includes everything you need to get a cluster – physical or virtual, up and running quickly. For clients with diverse application and user requirements, Platform Cluster Manager - Advanced Edition automates assembly of multiple high-performance technical computing environments on a shared compute infrastructure used by multiple teams. The software creates an agile environment for running both high performance computing and analytics workloads. By doing so, it allocates the right resources to the right workloads, consolidates disparate cluster infrastructures and multiple workload schedulers, resulting in increased resource utilization, the ability to meet or exceed service level agreements, and reduced infrastructure and management costs.

For clients with a single HPC cluster deployment, IBM Platform Cluster Manager – Standard Edition delivers the capability to quickly provision, run, manage and monitor technical computing clusters with unprecedented ease and scalability. The latest release of IBM Platform Cluster Manager – Standard Edition offers new flexible monitoring capabilities for servers, chassis, network switches, IBM Elastic Storage, GPU and co-processors, as well as customized devices. It also adds management node automatic fail over capability to ensure the cluster operation continuity.
