ABSTRACT
Linux Networx has announced its capability to provide grid-enabled cluster computing solutions in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Evolocity cluster solution can be deployed with grid software from Platform Computing and open source grid standard Globus to help customers make better use of information technology resources and run jobs across a grid infrastructure. The goal of grid computing is to enable different computing systems to dynamically and virtually share applications, data and computational resources. With grid-enabled cluster systems, organizations can make better use of computing resources by providing users with a single, aggregated source of computing power. Linux Networx validated Platform LSF and Platform Globus 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 OGSI 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 to ensure the tools run seamleassly over Evolocity cluster systems.
