Solution Factory and HPC
By Melvin Koh on Dec 22, 2008
I'm a little late in posting this, so this may be old news to some of you. Two quarters ago, I moved to a new team that is put together to developed new solutions that can be easily repeatable, pre-configured, pre-tested and quickly deployable. What this means to customer is less risk, reduced costs and higher efficiency. We have announced three new solutions, branded as the Sun Rapid Solutions, targeted at specific customer network infrastructure requirements around global web buildout, datacenter efficiency and high performance computing.
I'm part of the team that work on the HPC solution call Sun Compute Cluster. The solution is designed to provide customers with a simple, flexible, and scalable approach to addressing their compute-intensive environments. Thereby, enabling customers to quickly deploy a tested, reliable, and efficient architecture into production. It uses a Linux software stack comprises of Sun software like Sun Grid Engine, xVM Ops Center, HPC Clustertools and Sun Studio. Customer can also chooses to use the new Sun HPC Software, Linux edition, or any other software stack they wishes by engaging Sun Professional Service or partners for customization.
