Phoenix Clustering Management Suite
Effortless Cluster Administration
Phoenix is a complete cluster management suite developed by Atipa to provide easy day-to-day management and operations of our clusters
Phoenix is complimentary with 3-years of standard support for all new cluster purchases
Fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Scientific Linux.
Up-to-date and installed with the latest patches.
Single, central point of management.
All configuration, user accounts, and health monitoring are performed from the head node.
Quick, intuitive node provisioning.
100% menu-driven installation process facilitates easy deployment of new nodes.
Support for multiple node types.
Pre-defined node types include standard compute nodes, large memory nodes, accelerator nodes, storage nodes, and Lustre* server nodes.
Additional custom node types can be added if needed.
Easily modified node software stack.
Each node type has its own configuration files and installation scripts to allow fine-grained customization of the software stack for different node types.
User account management.
A single command creates new user accounts and access to all cluster nodes.
Parallel command execution.
Simultaneously copy files to or execute commands on all nodes or subgroups of nodes in the cluster.
Out-of-band system management.
Remote power on/off and KVM-over-LAN via dedicated IPMI 2.0 network.
Web and command-line based health monitoring. Web-based monitoring is available via ganglia, including custom plug-ins for CPU temperature and fan speed monitoring.Command-line checks are available via a single clusterQC command, customized for each cluster and node type to check hardware and software conformity.
Customized to each system for optimal user experience.
Custom clusters need custom software.
Modifications or additions needed for specialty items will be included into a site-specific Phoenix stack as needed.
Pre-bundled job scheduler, parallel libraries, and performance libraries.
Open source job scheduler (torque/maui or Slurm), parallel libraries (Open MPI), Intel® Math Kernel Library (MKL) included.
Others available on request.
Pre-configured environment modules.
Easily manage different versions of applications and libraries without conflicts.
End-users can dynamically modify their environment with simple “module load” and “module unload” commands.
Optional commercial schedulers, compilers and 3rd-party software.
Advanced scheduling with Moab HPC Suite, transparent code optimization with Intel® or PGI® compilers, improved software development with 3rd-party development tools.
All clusters are tuned for top performance for a wide range of applications.
Certified Intel® Cluster Ready.
Conforms with Intel®’s Scalable System Framework cluster architecture.
