HPC Cluster Upgrades

HPC Cluster Custom Upgrades from Aspen Systems


The needs of your enterprise are constantly changing. Cluster upgrades are often necessary when a business experiences rapid growth, and software updates are advisable to bring systems up to date with modern utilities and distributions. Aspen Systems understands that growth is the ultimate goal of any business, and we are dedicated to integrating your cluster upgrades seamlessly and efficiently. Our sales engineers are ready to address your specific concerns and needs, finding the cluster upgrades that will satisfy your requirements.

Cluster Hardware Upgrades – Meeting your Needs

Our sales engineers understand that one on one interaction is necessary when determining what hardware a client needs to meet their increased workloads. Infrastructure upgrades often require attention to diverse systems such as high-speed switches, power connections, or even increased rack space. It is essential that these upgrades function in accordance with existing systems, and our engineers are ever mindful of this fact. This is especially true when heat loads are increased, but accommodating new nodes is our specialty. Whether you seek to upgrade identical or diverse bit architecture upgrades, we are confident we can maintain compatibility with system libraries and utilities already installed on your current Aspen cluster. If your cluster was built by another vendor things might be a bit more complicated, but we are also experienced in addressing these needs.

Addressing Software Upgrades

Sometimes it becomes necessary to upgrade cluster software to utilize more modern utilities, kernels, and distributions. Often, software upgrades accompany hardware upgrades, while at other times clients want the reliability of Aspen Systems software packages integrated into their existing hardware. Regardless of your situation, we can address your needs and customize a solution for you. A cluster software upgrade is an entire software rebuild of your cluster environment from top to bottom. These upgrades can be accomplished either on site by one of our engineers or shipped directly to you, and occasionally via a remote walk through.

Aspen Systems can also address cluster upgrades with 32/64 bit integration. These challenges require a full software upgrade, but the benefits are many.
