Kansas City, KS, April 15, 2014 -Advanced Clustering Technologies announces the publication of a case study it collaborated on with Auto Research Center (ARC).  ARC looks for ways to stretch fuel efficiencies for a variety of vehicles: from passenger cars to race cars to commercial trucks. In addition, they are running simulations to find tactical advantages for military vehicles. It expanded its cluster resources in 2012 in an effort to improve run-time on simulations. The software they develop and use for ground vehicle development, called ELEMENTS, is able to take advantage of the latest in processor and interconnect technologies that included, at that time, the newest Xeon processors and 40Gb/s InfiniBand as the method for their nodes sharing and processing their data. Engineers from Advanced Clustering Technologies worked with their counterparts in architecting the optimum configuration, then arrived on-site to install it and get it ready for production. The process went very smoothly and as a result of their experience, Advanced Clustering recently completed an upgrade to this cluster.

Advanced Clustering Releases eQUEUE Commercial E-mail

Kansas City, KS, February 24, 2014 -Advanced Clustering Technologies announces the world premiere of their first commercial about eQUEUE. It explains what eQUEUE is, what it can do for both high performance computing (HPC) cluster administrators and users. First introduced at SC13, eQUEUE has three main components: 1) Web-based job submission tool; 2) Remote visualization; and 3) Advanced analytics.

This new explainer video gives viewers a high-level overview of what eQUEUE can do for them from both an administrator's and user's perspective.  eQUEUE was created to make it easier for system administrators to bring more users to their cluster by allowing them to build easy-to-use job submission forms.  It is cross-platform so it works with Windows, Mac and Linux.  It is also accessible via any modern web browser.  A second key feature is the remote visualization component.  By accessing the cluster's GPU nodes, users can visualize large datasets already on the cluster - there is no need download huge files or install software on their own computers, so this can be done on modest internet connections.  It also includes a feature that allows you to exit a session on one computer and pick it up from the same point at a later date and from a different computer.  eQUEUE also includes an advanced analytics tool that gives administrators key insights into how their cluster is being used.  This is a built-in feature (as is the remote visualization component) that compiles this information from the accounting logs of the job scheduler resident on the cluster.  it can be used to analyze one's cluster at the user, group and queue level.

Kansas City, KS, February 14, 2014 -Today, Advanced Clustering Technologies celebrates 13 years in business, all of them spent in the high performance computing (HPC) industry. Thirteen years ago, Advanced Clustering Technologies opened its doors for business. Since that day, they have worked with incredible people and outstanding organizations doing incredible things. Said Robin Slattery, co-owner and VP of Operations: “We’ve been fortunate to work with not only the best people in the industry, but also having our great team here at Advanced Clustering. They are what keep our customers coming back to us.”

Their clusters have been used to expand the reaches of science and technology: from helping to better understand genetic disorders in children, to improving hurricane tracking, to developing alternative forms of energy, and too many more to mention. They have partnered with the top scientists, engineers, and researchers across North America over the years, and look forward to continuing developing and strengthening those relationships for many years to come. As part of their 13th birthday celebration, for the remainder of February, they will be giving away one-year licenses of eQUEUE, their powerful new job-submission tool to new cluster and cluster add-on purchases. You can visit their website, www.advancedclustering.com, for more details.
