Cresset Engine Broker™

Speed up your drug discovery experiments by running calculations on a remote server or cluster

Whether you use the graphical interface, the command line, or our components for KNIME®, Cresset Engine Broker will dramatically speed up your calculations.

The Cresset Engine Broker is a Linux® application that sits between client computers (Windows®, Linux or macOS®) running GUI or command line versions of Cresset’s applications and high performance computing resources such as a Linux cluster.

It receives calculation requests from Cresset applications and transfers them through to the HPC resources and uses a simple, configurable script to start resources and submit requests to queuing systems such as Slurm, SGE or Platform LSF.

Installation and configuration is straight forward and fully supported by Cresset’s in-house experts to make upgrading your calculations painless.

Cresset Engine Broker is compatible with:

  • Flare to enhance your molecule designs and understand your SAR using new and established computational approaches to ligand-based and structure-based design
  • Spark to generate highly innovative ideas for your drug discovery project to escape IP and toxicity traps
