StackIQ, a leading provider of cluster management solutions for Big Infrastructure, including Big Data, Cloud, enterprise Linux applications, and HPC, today released a new version of its comprehensive cluster management software. The new version is immediately available for download from the company’s website.

StackIQ Cluster Manager is based on the latest enterprise Linux — Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS 6.5 — and features an enhanced graphical user interface (GUI) along with powerful tools that help administrators automate host configuration, application definition, and cluster topology. StackIQ Cluster Manager now also embeds and controls Salt for live change management tasks.

Additionally, enterprise customers now have access to updated Big Data Rolls (modules) that connect the StackIQ core with the Hadoop platforms of Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR. StackIQ Cluster Manager can provision, deploy, and manage them all with ease, including tight integration with native Hadoop management tools. For HPC customers, every Roll has been updated, from the Intel Developer, to the Mellanox OFED and CUDA Rolls.

The latest release of StackIQ Cluster Manager offers many features enterprise customers desire, including:

   •      Spreadsheet driven host configuration, application definition, and cluster topology

   •     Optimized RAID controller configuration automated per host/stack

   •     Salt embedded for live change management

   •     Cluster-wide device validation and asset inventory

   •     Real time high resolution device utilization monitoring
