Need proven and highly capable management of HPC and “Big Data” clusters and other high performance scale out environments? HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility (CMU) is an integrated, easy-to-use tool for provisioning, management, and monitoring in clusters of any scale. CMU makes cluster management more efficient and error free and enables administrators to optimize the use of their resources. With extensive capabilities to manage system images, CMU can rapidly provision and manage a single server, dynamically defined groups of servers, or entire systems using disk-based or diskless deployment. CMU provides both CLI and GUI interfaces that monitor and display very large clusters in 2D or 3D representations. CMU can remotely halt, boot or power off, and broadcast commands to any selected set of nodes. cmu_diff allows administrators to pinpoint node differences at a glance. CMU’s “limit-free” architecture scales as your cluster grows.

What's new

  • “Limitless” architecture for scaling beyond 4096 nodes.
  • Higher speed parallel cloning for rack-size configurations.
  • Latest OS support: RHEL 7.2, SLES 12 SP1.
  • Linux volume manager (LVM) image backup and cloning.
  • Simplified HPE AutoPass licensing with keyless, “Instant On” for demonstration or temporary use.
  • Full-feature version available by download from HPE Software Depot.
