Platform Open Cluster Stack



I want to ask why Redhat partners with Platform Computing INC. for its
HPC solutions?

The Platform Lava scheduler is a scaled-down and disabled scheduler.
Platform wants Lava users to eventually migrate to Platform LSF, which
is close-source and has sales teams which uses FUD against other open
source schedulers.

The more popular solutions are the Rocks cluster distribution and Sun
Grid Engine (or Cluster Resources Torque). In fact, Univa UD starts
its LSF migration service to Grid Engine because a lot of LSF users
find LSF to be too costly:

http://gridengine.sunsource.net/

So why not use Rocks cluster and SGE plus other add ons from Redhat to
create a real open, low cost, and popular solution for HPC?
