Cluster Resources Becomes Adaptive Computing

PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cluster Resources, the company behind the Moab unified intelligent automation technology, today announced a strategic move into the commercial data center market with a new name and brand identity, Adaptive Computing, and an upgraded software suite focused on extending the value of Moab to the data center, private and public cloud environments. The company's robust Moab Adaptive Computing Suite platform for data centers and private clouds now allows a wider range of organizations to leverage Moab's proven management and automation capabilities in order to create dynamic, intelligent IT environments.

Adaptive Computing's Moab technology has a strong legacy in the high performance computing (HPC) market and currently manages 12 of the world's 20 largest computing installations and countless other data and compute intensive environments. These HPC environments require agile, intelligent workflow management and automation that can respond to changing business needs; the same requirements now needed within data center and cloud computing environments as organizations consolidate and virtualize resources, and allocate and manage applications to optimize service levels and reduce operational costs.

"As a result of the substantial advancements in industry-standard server and interconnect technologies, datacenters and IT service providers are increasingly adopting the scale-out computing model, with installations that resemble those of the largest high performance computing (HPC) environments. Visionary companies recognize this trend and are applying best practices from resource-intensive supercomputing facilities to their next-generation data center and cloud deployments," said Joe Zhou, senior analyst at Ideas International. "The HPC community has long exploited the tremendous value of intelligent automation. In this new age of enterprise computing, characterized by virtualization and cloud computing, a similar intelligence layer is required for optimizing resources in response to a dynamic business climate. Data center-wide virtualization and workload management can help to maximize the return on investments in infrastructure, applications and personnel."
