xVM Ops Center on Linux

The recently shipped Sun xVM Ops Center 1.1 enables to run management tiers (Satellite and Proxy) on Linux, in addition to Solaris that came with xVM Ops Center 1.0. At the recently concluded International Supercomputing conference (IS08) in Dresden, Germany, Sun announced Sun xVM Ops Center 1.1 along with the availability of a number of hardware and software for the HPC market, including

  • the 72 port DDR Infiniband Sun Data Center Switch 3x24,
  • the 4 socket Sun Blade X6450 Intel Blade capable of delivering 7.37 Tflops peak performance in a fully populated 6048 chassis,
  • an integrated Sun HPC Software Linux Edition 1.0,
  • an integrated toolkit for developers Sun HPC Cluster Tools 8.0 containing the latest Open MPI 1.3, and
  • Sun's scalable visualization software, Sun Visualization Software 1.1.

All of the above were displayed at the ISC08 Sun booth last week and received lots of interest from customers and partners.

 Here is a screenshot from our demo with xVM Ops Center 1.1 installed on CentOS 5

And another screenshot with xVM Ops Center provisioning Sun Grid Engine 6.1 

See here and here for detailed instructions on provisioning CentOS 5 and Sun Grid Engine 6.1, respectively.

Come, Participate in Ops Center Extensibility Projects

Have you checked out openxvm.org recently. We have recently added a couple candidate projects aimed at extending the functional reach of Sun xVM Ops Center and enable interoperability with other popular solutions, particularly in the HPC space.

Let me briefly introduce these two integration projects. 

  • Integration of Sun Grid Engine (SGE) and Sun xVM Ops Center. SGE is based on the open source Grid Engine project that provides policy-based workload management and dynamic provisioning of application workloads. Grid Engine open source software is used at thousands of HPC sites worldwide.
  • Integration of Rocks and Sun xVM Ops Center. Rocks is an open source Linux cluster distribution that enables end users to easily build computational clusters, grid endpoints and visualization tiled-display walls. Rocks' popularity in the HPC community is evidenced by several Rocks deployments around the world.
More information on these projects and how to get involved is available by clicking on the 3rd category in the left pane titled "Integration Projects" here. Look forward to working with you on these projects
