The Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) -- invites you to attend:

A Lunch & Learn Round Table Discussion Meeting

Cluster Manager
Ease of cluster deployment and management for High Performance Computing, Data Center and Technical Computing environments.


Focused on administration of clusters, how can this difficult, constantly changing task be simplified. As an administrator is your goal to chase down errant packages, writing and maintaining scripts to perfectly configure servers after you have installed them? Or would your time be better spent focusing on reacting to business needs of your cluster? For those of you who have honed in your scripts over years, what happens when you win the lottery and decide to move to a tropical island?

In this session we will discuss daily use issues with tools to manage cluster configurations. How to put all that behind you and use proven scalable systems to insure Administrator time is better spent focusing on addressing business needs.

Live demonstration, open discussion, configuration management – how are you using it today and what would you like to streamline.

Other Beneficial points
