Performance, Capacity and Capability
Clustering multiple symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) nodes to form a large, scalable system is increasingly popular among engineering and technical computing users. HP-UX clusters permit you to exploit the shared memory and intra-node performance of large-scale SMP systems: clusters of 8, 16, 32 and 64 processor systems that deliver the scale of large clusters with capability to address the most difficult serial and memory intensive applications.
HP ClusterPack Software
Although server clusters provide high availability, improve price/performance and consolidate resources, one of the biggest concerns for both IT administrators and end users is the manageability of the cluster environment. For HP-UX clusters, Nth recommends the use of HP ClusterPack software to ensure faster deployment, easier maintenance & management and improved usage of an HP-UX based cluster environment. (See sidebar for the HP ClusterPack V2.4 datasheet).
