Ocean is an administration software stack to provide tools and documentation for heterogeneous cluster management.

It is composed in two sub projects Ocean-core and Ocean-stack.

Ocean-core is a RPM-based distribution built upon a standard Linux distribution and provides packaged tools and software updates needed to manage HPC clusters.

Ocean-stack (aka Deepblue) describes how to architecture core services required on HPC clusters, how to integrate third-party services and gives operating procedures to manage a HPC Cluster at scale.


Role in EUPEX: Ocean will be the base operating system on the EUPEX pilot. It will provide all necessary dependencies for other software components in EUPEX.
