Linux NetworX Unveils ClusterWorX Lite and Releases ClusterWorX 2.1; New Software Packages Provide More Cluster Management Options for Customers

Feb 12, 2002, 00:00 ET from Linux NetworX

    SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Linux NetworX, a provider of
 powerful cluster supercomputing solutions, announced today the unveiling of
 ClusterWorX Lite, an entry-level version of its cluster management software
 with limited functionality, designed for cluster systems with 16 nodes or
 less.  ClusterWorX 2.1, the latest version of the award-winning cluster
 management software from Linux NetworX, is also being released with enhanced
 features.  ClusterWorX and ClusterWorX Lite are sold as part of the overall
 cluster solution provided by Linux NetworX and are not sold separately.
     Linux clustering is a method of linking multiple computers, or compute
 nodes, together to form a unified and more powerful system.  ClusterWorX and
 ClusterWorX Lite allow administrators to control the cluster as a single
 system, and provide secure remote monitoring and management capabilities.
     Linux NetworX released ClusterWorX Lite to provide organizations with an
 alternative cluster management software package with the basic functionality
 of ClusterWorX, but without some of the enhanced features required for larger
 systems.  ClusterWorX Lite can easily be upgraded to the full ClusterWorX
 version to gain additional features like automatic cluster administration, and
 the ability to create and control sub-groups of nodes within the cluster.
     "Releasing an entry-level version of ClusterWorX allows both large and
 small customers to have access to professionally supported cluster management
 software tools," said Clark Roundy, vice president of marketing for Linux
 NetworX.  "Linux NetworX is focused on making clusters more accessible to any
 organization wanting to take advantage of the power, scalability and
 reliability of Linux clusters."
     ClusterWorX 2.1 is also being released by Linux NetworX to provide new
 features, such as enhanced network management capabilities, as well as
 improvements on existing features, further simplifying cluster administration.
     Both ClusterWorX and ClusterWorX Lite work in conjunction with the Linux
 NetworX ICE Box cluster appliance to deliver remote power control and direct
 access to each node within the cluster.  More information on ClusterWorX and
 ClusterWorX Lite can be found at

 Web site at http://www.linuxnetworx.com .
 
     About ClusterWorX 2.1
     Linux NetworX has developed the most functionally advanced suite of
 cluster tools of its kind, making cluster management simple for even the most
 complex of systems.  ClusterWorX users can remotely monitor and control a
 cluster system, down to the individual node.  The flexible and scalable
 architecture of the software allows users to add compute nodes as demands
 increase.  ClusterWorX is designed to be very easy to customize and extend to
 meet the requirements of a customer's application.  The software also employs
 an event engine to provide automatic administration functionality.  For
 example, if processors rise above a specified temperature, ClusterWorX can
 remotely alert the user of the problem, and can even power down the node.
 
     About ClusterWorX Lite
     ClusterWorX Lite provides the basic ClusterWorX functionality such as the
 node cloning, system monitoring, and remote secure access, but does not
 provide sub-group management, or the event engine.  These features become
 increasingly important as cluster size increases.
