OpenVPS is a set of software built on top of the Linux VServer aimed specifically at Web Hosting. It is not another set of kernel patches, but a set of scripts to create virtual servers, collect resource utilization information, and provide an interface to the customer as well as the administrator.
Moab Grid Suite is a professional grid workload management solution that integrates scheduling, management, monitoring, and reporting of workloads across independent clusters. Moab makes moving to a grid easy by adding grid-optimized job submission and management in a matter of minutes. Moab optimizes data staging and seamlessly integrates with existing security mechanisms or with grid security tool kits such as Globus. It gives sites extensive control over ownership-based access, priority, and service levels. It provides fine-tuned control over the workload and resources to make the grid usable.
TORQUE is a resource manager that provides control over batch jobs and distributed compute nodes. It is a community effort based on the original *PBS project and, with more than 1,200 patches, it has incorporated significant advances in the areas of scalability, fault tolerance, and feature extensions.
footprint is a tool that makes it easier to create and manage kickstart files. It allows you to define systems, create profiles for systems, and macros per distribution. It can create kickstart files on the fly, make custom initrd (ramdisks), create custom bootfloppies, and can manage your DHCP and PXE configuration.
SLURM is a resource manager designed for Linux clusters of all sizes. It provides three key functions. First, it allocates exclusive and/or non-exclusive access to resources to users for some duration of time so that they can perform work. Second, it provides a framework for starting, executing, and monitoring work (typically a parallel job). Finally, it arbitrates conflicting requests for resources by managing a batch queue of pending work.
Open MPI is a project that originated as the merging of technologies and resources from several other projects (FT- MPI, LA-MPI, LAM/MPI, and PACX-MPI) in order to build the best MPI library available. A completely new MPI-2 compliant implementation, Open MPI offers advantages for system and software vendors, application developers, and computer science researchers. It is easy to use, and runs natively on a wide variety of operating systems, network interconnects, and batch/scheduling systems.
