Frontier® 6 Enterprise Computing Platform

Frontier 6, the latest version of Parabon's industry-leading enterprise computing software platform, makes it even easier for organizations to transform existing IT infrastructure into a single, centrally managed virtual datacenter, able to provide dynamically provisioned cloud services, extreme-scale grid computing capacity, and system-wide resource profiling — all while maintaining current operational capabilities.

NEW! Now featuring Frontier CODE Collaborative Online Development Environment

The new Frontier CODE development environment (PDF) provides browser-based Platform as a Service (PaaS) tools for creating and hosting projects on Frontier: source code repositories, build environments, in-browser editors, user forums, wikis, and trouble ticketing systems — everything you need to create vibrant code-centric communities around cloud- and grid-based software applications you can deploy with the click of a button and that can scale out across your entire enterprise and even tap into public computing resources over the Internet.

Which Configuration is Right for You?

Frontier in the Enterprise

Workstations & Desktops

Whether you want grid power within a lab or datacenter, or wish to turn your entire IT infrastructure into a secure private grid, Frontier Enterprise enables grid and cloud services within your existing network.

Frontier Enterprise is ideal for customers who want to get maximum return on their IT investments (ROI). And, it's easy-to-use: Our turn-key COTS solution can be deployed in as little as 15 mins! Watch the video.

Workstations & Desktops

Frontier unobtrusively harnesses the excess computing capacity of existing desktops and workstations across your enterprise to provide a high-performance computing grid for data-heavy, compute-intensive, and distributed command and control applications.

Frontier in the Dedicated Datacenter

Datacenter Servers

Are you consolidating servers through virtualization, or simply wanting to make better use of existing servers? In either case, you can deploy the Frontier Compute Engine natively on popular operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris, to get grid power while reserving the option of using the same machines for other purposes.

Datacenter Servers

Frontier can be deployed on existing servers to provide grid services without having to purchase and maintain costly dedicated cluster hardware.

PCs on the Internet

Tap into (or become a part of) our online Parabon Computation Grid.

Pay as you go by purchasing computation "by the slice" in this first-of-its-kind online, brokered High-Performance Computing (HPC) utility service.

PSs on the Internet

Extreme-scale computation is available as an easy to use, pay-as-you-go utility service via our online Parabon Computation Grid.

Frontier as a Virtual Private Grid

Outsourced Server

Harness the computational capacity of your own enterprise, but leave the server management to us.

Our Virtual Private Grid (VPG) model allows your organization or institution unrestricted grid access to the computing capacity within your enterprise or labs, but without having to stand up and administer an onsite Frontier Grid Server.

Outsourced Server

A Virtual Private Grid lets you use your resources with our grid server. This low-cost, hybrid solution offers you unlimited access to your organization's excess computing capacity, without having to purchase a Frontier Enterprise license.

Run Frontier on Your Virtualized Cloud Servers

Virtualized Infrastructure

Add or remove Frontier Compute Engines; clone hundreds of Virtual Appliances; provide your users with a novel computation service without impacting day-to-day production operations.

Both the Frontier Grid Server and Frontier Compute Engine can be installed as VMware or Xen Hypervisor compatible Virtual Appliances, allowing you to easily deploy a grid computing service across a virtualized datacenter.

Virtualized Infrastructure

The Frontier Virtual Appliance provides Grid Services on your Cloud Infrastructure. And, because Frontier can be configured to run as a low-priority, background process, it can run concurrently on cloud infrastructure without affecting cloud provisioning requests.
