CLUSTER RESOURCES HOSTS EXHIBIT AT SCl05
 
Visitors to the annual Supercomputing 2005 (SCl05) conference can visit
with 
Cluster Resources'(TM) Developers and staff and test Cluster Resources'
software 
live.  Cluster Resources will host an exhibit at the conference held in
Seattle, 
Wash. Nov. 15-17 2005. 
 
Guests can ask questions and provide feedback on Moab(TM), Maui or
TORQUE to Jackson, 
as well as a team of technical and product managers. The conference
gives visitors 
a chance to discuss unique and detailed cluster or grid management
challenges and 
brainstorm possible solutions with developers. There is expected to be
free 
evaluation copies of Cluster Resources' software that anyone can take
and use on 
their clusters or grids.
 
Cluster Resources' booth, number 2036, is located at the south end of
the Washington 
State Convention and Trade Center. To learn more about the SCl05
conference, visit 
the Web site at http://sc05.supercomputing.org/home.html. To find a

TORQUE UPDATES
 
TORQUE 1.2.0p5 incorporates more updates from the user community and
Cluster 
Resources(TM) and will be released this week. The new patch provides
improved 
diagnostics of overall system failures and better handling of resource
failures. 
Users will also enjoy improved scheduling optimizations and numerous
small bug fixes.
 
In the next TORQUE release, Cluster Resources will provide improved
high availability 
and rapid start up features.  A new set of TORQUE documentation will
also be released 
shortly.

********************************************************************************
MOAB GRID SUITE UPDATES
 
While the latest releases of Moab Workload Manager enables the creation
of highly 
manageable, flexible and scalable grids, Cluster Resources(TM) is
making grid 
management even easier with the new Beta version of Moab Grid
Suite(TM).  The new 
Moab Grid Suite will include the latest release of Moab Grid Manager, a
graphical 
tool which allows management, analysis, and reporting for grids.  Moab
Grid Suite 
is an extension of Moab Cluster Suite(TM), so administrators can manage
grid
environments with the same ease and exacting control that Moab Cluster
Suite 
facilitates in cluster 
environments.
 
With Moab Grid Suite, organizations will be able to create virtual
private clusters 
that can enable account based resource access controls for grid
workload.  Virtual 
private clusters can be used for political sharing of resources
managing information 
so as to minimize end-user disputes and confusion.
 
Moab Grid Suite also has improved configuration so administrators can
quickly setup, 
tune, and troubleshoot Grid environments.  To learn more about Moab
Grid Suite, call 
a Cluster Resources representative at +1 (801) 873-3400.
 

********************************************************************************
DID YOU KNOW: HIGH AVAILABILITY
 
When management nodes fail, organizations can experience significant
losses in terms 
of time, money, and productivity. Moab Workload Manager's(TM) High
Availability features 
can immediately redirect scheduling services to a backup server to
avoid downtime when 
such an event occurs.  
 
In High Availability Mode, Moab runs on a primary node and a backup
node, and actively 
shares configuration, state, and historical information, so if the
primary goes down, 
clients are automatically redirected to the backup and it takes over
with no noticeable 
side-effects.  The backup server will continue to schedule until the
primary recovers.
 
To learn more about using the high availability feature, visit 
http://www.clusterresources.com/products/mwm/docs/22.2ha.shtml. To
download a free 
evaluation of Moab Cluster Suite, go to
http://www.clusterresources.com/products/eval3.shtml.
