Intel® Cluster Ready

Clusters Made Simpler


Intel® Cluster Ready is an architecture and a program that makes it easier to gain the performance advantages of High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters.  Developed with hardware and software vendors, Intel® Cluster Ready lets you match your HPC applications to today’s leading platforms and components. Pre-configured cluster solutions are delivered ready to run, so you can unleash more parallel performance faster.


Why Intel® Cluster Ready?


Intel® Cluster Ready architecture means pre-tested inter-operability, so you realize HPC benefits faster. Match certified systems with registered applications and enjoy the freedom to focus on purchasing the configuration that best fits your application workload – without worrying if components will work together. Intel® Cluster Ready solutions come with the Intel® Cluster Checker tool, to help you validate that the cluster remains within certification over time and troubleshoot any problems that occur. The result: greater productivity and higher return on your HPC investment.

Powerful Tool, Simpler Management


Intel® Cluster Checker delivers pre-packaged expertise in the form of a systems diagnostic tool suitable for high-performance computing (HPC) cluster experts and those new to HPC. Provided at no charge to Intel® Cluster Ready customers and partners, Intel® Cluster Checker delivers value throughout the cluster lifecycle.

Ready on Day 1


Put your cluster to work right out of the box. Before your certified Intel® Cluster Ready system arrives, your platform provider has used Intel® Cluster Checker to verify that the system fully complies with the Intel® Cluster Ready specification. Application software developers have defined representative workloads and used Intel® Cluster Checker to confirm that their applications ran successfully on an Intel® Cluster Ready system.


Ongoing Productivity


Use Intel® Cluster Checker to help keep components working together over the cluster’s lifetime, just as they’re supposed to. Run Intel® Cluster Checker regularly to enhance system reliability and ensure optimal performance.


Rapid Resolution


If problems arise, use Intel® Cluster Checker to identify trouble spots quickly and obtain detailed diagnostic information. Solve problems in minutes, not days, enjoying the increased productivity of HPC clusters while reducing the need for specialized support skills.


Continued Compliance


Intel® Cluster Checker analyzes a cluster configuration to be certain it is in compliance with the Intel® Cluster Ready specification. If you add new capabilities, run Intel® Cluster Checker to make sure the system is still in compliance and the interface between the system and the application level remains intact.

A Closer Look


Intel® Cluster Checker inspects more than 100 characteristics that indicate cluster health. It examines the system at both the node and cluster level, making sure all components work together and can deliver optimal performance. It assesses firmware, kernel, storage, and network settings, and conducts high-level tests of node and network performance using the Intel® MPI Benchmarks, STREAM, the High-Performance Linpack (HPL) benchmark, and other benchmarks. Additionally, you can extend the functionality of Intel® Cluster Checker with custom tests.


Value for Partners


Intel® Cluster Checker helps Intel® Cluster Ready partners create certified systems and validate that components work together as a total solution. Use Intel® Cluster Checker during engineering design to certify that the solution meets Intel® Cluster Ready requirements and the cluster instance passes all health checks. At manufacturing, use Intel® Cluster Checker to verify compliance and ensure each cluster will function as it should, right out of the box- to head off post-sales problems before they have a chance to occur. Spend less time problem solving issues with individual deployments and more time innovating solution designs.
