LINUX NETWORX GETS INTO GRID GAME.

Linux Networx, Salt Lake City, has announced its capability to provide grid-enabled cluster computing solutions. The Evolocity cluster solution from Linux Networx can be deployed with grid software from Platform Computing and open source grid standard Globus to help customers make better use of IT resources and run jobs across a grid infrastructure.

The goal of grid computing is to enable different computing systems, which may be geographically dispersed, to dynamically and virtually share applications, data and computational resources. With grid-enabled cluster systems, organizations can make better use of existing computing resources by providing users with a single, aggregated source of computing power.

"Grid computing is becoming a reality and Linux Networx is prepared to help our customers meet this emerging wave in the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry," said Dean Hutchings, president of Linux Networx.

Linux Networx validated Platform LSF and Platform Globus Toolkit on Evolocity Cluster Systems. Platform LSF software manages and accelerates batch workload processing for grid applications, while Platform Globus Toolkit includes connectors to provide interoperability with a wide variety of grid offerings. Both Platform products are compliant with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) Specification. The OSGI defines mechanisms for creating, managing and exchanging information among Grid services.

Platform LSF, Platform Globus Toolkit, and Globus Toolkit were tested and validated by Linux Networx to ensure the tools run seamlessly over Evolocity cluster systems. Platform is also a participant in Linux Networx's state-of-the-art cluster testing and evaluation facility, the Solutions Center. With Platform LSF and Platform Globus Toolkit software available in the Solutions Center, customers and partners can validate their specific applications on a grid-enabled Evolocity cluster system.

"By partnering with Linux Networx, we are able to provide the HPC community with a complete grid-enabled cluster solution for high productivity computing," said Rene Copeland, VP, Government, Platform Computing. "Linux Networx Evolocity clusters deployed with Platform Computing's software tools represent the best in cluster hardware and grid software to help organizations reduce costs, improve service levels and enhance business performance."
