Dell Expands HPC Access and Adoption With Intel Cluster Ready Program
Source: Tabor Communications
The Intel Cluster Ready program, for which Dell was an original partner, seeks to address this challenge by simplifying the purchase, deployment, and management of HPC clusters for entry level and mid-range HPC users. The Intel Cluster Ready program is based upon the Intel Cluster Ready Specification, a common basis for building clusters and registering applications for HPC. The specification, which includes requirements for hardware, software, manageability, and functionality, helps to ensure that each cluster component conforms to industry standards or, if no standard exists, best-in-class practices. Intel provides the specification to hardware vendors, software vendors, and systems integrators, so they can build certified Intel Cluster Ready clusters and develop registered Intel Cluster Ready applications.
