CLUSTER RESOURCES TO HOST FREE REMOTE TRAINING 

Cluster Resources will host a week of free 
VNC/Teleconference based training sessions during February 
2006. During the week, Cluster Resources will hold several 
six-hour general training sessions as well as shorter 
topic-centric sessions tailored to participants interests. 
The sessions will include instructor-led training and a Q&A. 
To submit topics of interest or to request an invitation 
to the conference, e-mail awebb at clusterresources.com. 

Each class is limited to 20 people and each organization 
may allow as many people as desired to attend. First 
preference will be given to paying customers and partners, 
but we expect to have available space for evaluating 
organizations as well.

The last training session Cluster Resources hosted in August 
2005 was completely filled, so please confirm interest early. 
More information on the training will be available in January 
on Cluster Resources' Web site and in the newsletter.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Cluster Resources wants to wish all a merry Christmas 
and a safe and happy holiday season.

DID YOU KNOW: CONTROLLING RESOURCE INFORMATION SECURITY

Organizations sharing compute resources among departments 
or with other organizations often need to control the 
resource information that is available to sharing parties 
for political or other reasons. Organizations can use Moab's 
peer-to-peer grid capabilities that provides three modes of 
resource information control so organizations can govern what 
information users can find about the resources on the cluster 
or grid.

1.Direct - This is the default information mode. Nodes are 
reported to remote clusters exactly as they appear in the 
local cluster.
2.Mapped - Nodes are reported as individual nodes, but node 
names are mapped to a unique name when imported into the 
remote cluster.
3.Grid - Node information is aggregated into a single large 
SMP-like pseudo-node before it is reported to the remote 
cluster.

To learn how to control these settings on your own cluster 
with Moab, visit
