The Intel® Cluster Ready program has laid out in recent years a strong technical basis for successful HPC cluster solution deployments, cluster application compliance, and turnkey Linux cluster reference designs.
Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF) takes these concepts further and provides a holistic architectural approach for future HPC deployments by enabling a wide range of highly workload-optimized solutions.
In 2016 Intel is transitioning the core elements of the Intel® Cluster Ready program into the new and extended Intel® SSF HPC design foundation, with more comprehensive diagnostic capabilities and redefined and streamlined certification and registration processes.
The Intel® Cluster Ready community consists of more than a hundred OEMs/SIs and ISV partners. Intel is committed to maintain and grow this active ecosystem and seamlessly make the transfer to Intel® SSF.
