Scalable systems management with xCAT/Confluent

Scalable systems management might appear to be a new problem that needs to be solved as cloud and hyperscale solutions become more mainstream.  However, scalable management has been a problem that has needed a solution in high performance computing for almost 20 years beginning with the emergence of Beowulf clusters.  Several open source and proprietary toolkits exists today with each differing in their ability to quickly and easily scale.   One such toolkit, the Extreme Cluster Administration Toolkit (xCAT: http://sourceforge.net/p/xcat/wiki/Main_Page/) first came on the systems management scene in the early 2000s with version 1.x and has since matured to it’s current 2.9.1 version. xCAT is a scalable cluster management and provisioning tool that provides hardware control, discovery, and OS diskful/diskfree deployment for all types of scalable systems beyond HPC.  xCAT is open source today, will continue to be in the future and is strategic to our scalable systems management strategy at Lenovo.  Come listen to this presentation to learn how the xCAT team is working to solve tomorrow’s system management problems with the emergence of the new Confluent module.  This module is poised to simplify extreme scalability and ease of use issue so users can minimize downtime and increase productivity of their systems.
