This article provides an overview of enterprise tools and features for managing systems and resources in compute-intensive environments typically found in high performance computing (HPC). This article provides recommendations to system administrators and users for taking advantage of these tools and features. The article covers the following:

  • "Enterprise Server Environments"

  • "Enterprise Server Tools"

  • "Enterprise Server Features"

Introduction

The adoption of node clustering architecture in high performance computing (HPC) is welcomed by both customers and computer vendors such as Sun Microsystems, Inc. The compute intensive community is now able to build powerful systems using regular computers that typically were used in business-type environments. Customers from both business and technical computing environments can take advantage of each other's strengths to improve their computing capabilities. The business environment can take advantage of advances in algorithmic development that lead to higher computing performance. Technical and scientific environments can take advantage of legacy tools that matured in business environments.
