Irvine, CA - In a world where anything can happen, the need for immediate system recovery must be addressed. PSSC Labs proudly announces the latest enhancement to their PowerWulf Linux Clusters with the release of the Complete PowerWulf Recovery (CPR) system. CPR is an easy to use software/hardware utility that allows PowerWulf cluster users to quickly restore head node and slave node software images to their original factory installed image. This recovery includes all components of PSSC Labs Complete Beowulf Software Toolkit (CBeST) including operating system, custom scripts, message passing software, batch scheduling system and cluster management/monitoring utilities. CPR comes with documented instructions and will take less than 15 minutes to run.
"Over the course of our eighteen years in business, PSSC Labs has seen many of the issues that can occur with your high performance computing cluster," begins Mr. Lesser, PSSC Labs President. That is why we continue to improve our PowerWulf clusters by delivering innovative and useful solution. We want to do everything possible to help our end user's focus on their work and not administrating their cluster," asserts Larry Lesser. CPR is a simple solution to a problem that every cluster user must consider, "What if the cluster operating system and management utilities are corrupted or destroyed and the system needs to be reinstalled". Mr. Lesser explains, "This issue of a full system recovery has been difficult to address. With CPR the solution is simple. Just use the CPR bootable recovery device available with PSSC Labs PowerWulf clusters and you can reinstall the head node and slave node images to their original state. CPR gets you up and running with the cluster's factory installed images within minutes."
CPR is now included with all PSSC Labs PowerWulf clusters. All CBeST components and functions will be restored using PowerProtect. Technical assistance for all CbeST components and PowerProtect are included with PSSC Labs PowerWulf Clusters.
