Qlusters Introduces ClusterFrame[tm] for Enterprise Computing
| Qlusters' ClusterFrame product brings mainframe features and capabilities to business applications and traditional compute-intensive environments.
|Today's announcement releases two new product configurations. ClusterFrame/VM[tm] is a virtual mainframe hosting any IA-32 Operating System. ClusterFrame/SSI[tm] is a true Single-System-Image Linux Cluster platform.
ClusterFrame/VM supports typical mainframe business applications such as Oracle®, SAP®, DB2®, and SAS®. ClusterFrame provides the monitoring and control functions typical of a mainframe including full SLA management.
ClusterFrame/SSI brings true Single-System-Image features for the first time to the IA-32 world. New technologies (NetworkRAM[tm], SocketMigration[tm], and Distributed Shared Memory) free ClusterFrame/SSI from the restrictions of previous high performance clustering solutions while retaining a virtually unlimited ability to scale.
ClusterFrame software is bundled with Dell, IBM or HP IA-32 computers using best of class fast interconnects such as Dolphin, Myrinet, InfiniBand®, and switched Gigabit Ethernet. These low cost commodity hardware components enable Qlusters to deliver the best Total Cost of Ownership for a mainframe-computing platform. The solution is linearly scalable and handles heterogeneous components by design.
Qlusters' products bring mainframe manageability to your enterprise applications using commodity hardware and advanced clustering software. Increasing cluster performance is as simple as adding a new 1,2 or 4 way server node even while the cluster is running.
