Qlustar: Install and enjoy!

8.1.1 is out - Welcome Debian Wheezy

The Qlustar team is pleased to announce the release of Qlustar 8.1.1, and with it the availability of Debian/Wheezy as as second supported platform. 8.1.1 is a maintenance release, but it could also be considered a feature release, since it comes with so many new things.

We continue pushing the limits in cluster management with the new version of QluMan. It now features high-speed/high-security elliptic-curve cryptography to ensure absolutely secure communication. Chroot management has been added to make handling different compute platforms (Ubuntu and now Debian) a piece of cake. Employing the exciting features of ZFS has become simpler than ever through the availability of pre-configured ZFS disk configs.

On the application side, the CUDA 6 toolkit has been integrated bringing you state of the art development tools for GPU computing. A brand-new and rock-solid Lustre 2.5.1 release features the very best in the parallel filesystem world. Qlustar tasks have been introduced as package bundles each consisting of a collection of packages relevant to a certain field of HPC applications. Also enjoy an improved installation process and a lot more. Please read the release notes for more in-depth information.

Update your cluster when you get a chance. For update guidance check the instructions in the release notes as well as the general Qlustar Update Guide.

If you aren't running Qlustar yet, now is the best time to get started. Download this exciting release, install it and discover Qlustar's ease of use, power and ever-growing great features. Setting up and managing HPC/storage clusters has never been more fun.
