Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003

 For customers solving complex computational problems, Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 accelerates time-to-insight by providing a High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform that is simple to deploy, operate, and integrate with existing infrastructure and tools. Prescriptive setup procedures simplify network configuration, remote loading of nodes using Remote Installation Services, node configuration, and security setup.  The integrated Job Scheduler can be accessed via command-line interface, or through several API’s is provided for submitting and managing cluster workloads.  The job console allows you to manage jobs in much the same fashion that you queue and manage print jobs today.  Active Directory integration provides end-to-end user and security management while the Microsoft Management Console supports extensible snap-ins and integration with Microsoft Operations Manager.
