The Perceus Cluster Infrastructure - Next Generation Cluster Provisioning and Management

Time 10/10/07 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has implemented a new Linux cluster management infrastructure to address the increased demand for High Performance Computing and is working to extend this infrastructure to support research computing at the University of California, Berkeley. Whereas most cluster toolkits focus on the management of one cluster, this new infrastructure is designed to greatly reduce the effort required to provision new cluster hardware
into production and provides a central administration point for managing several clusters. It sets up a framework for the sharing
of compute node images, job scheduler, and applications binaries across all of the clusters and also allows researchers to easily migrate between computational resources. These new features facilitate the sharing of cluster computational resources across research
groups and can provide greater capacity and increased utilization of existing resources. This session will discuss the architecture of the new HPC infrastructure and devote time to discussing the advanced networking and security challenges encountered in deploying a common cyberinfrastructure between LBNL and UCB
