Intel HPC Orchestrator - Solving HPC Integration and Validation Changes

High-Performance Computing (HPC) is transforming our world and our businesses, delivering unprecedented insights to scientists, engineers, analysts, companies, and more. However integrating, testing, validating, and maintaining an HPC system software stack is a costly ongoing, time-consuming effort. Intel® HPC Orchestrator is changing all that. It enables HPC system designers, installers, and managers to spend less time integrating, configuring and maintaining a validated, reliable system software stack, and more time developing differentiated capabilities for users.

Leveraging years of Intel HPC software experience and expertise, Intel HPC Orchestrator is a family of Intel-supported products designed to simplify HPC system software stack implementation and maintenance. Based off the community-developed system software stack from OpenHPC, HPC Orchestrator contains many proven open source HPC tools such as Ganglia, Nagio, pdsh, and prun. By building off the OpenHPC framework, Intel’s HPC Orchestrator provides a pre-integrated, pre-tested, and pre-validated software stack that can significantly reduce the time required to perform implementation and maintenance tasks.
