Datacenter system management provider Evergrid has announced this week that it will be showcasing two new solutions at SC07 next week.
First up is the beta of Load Manager
Based on Evergrid’s patented operating system abstraction technology, Load Manager implements a comprehensive user-level scheduler that allows independent control of CPU, network and storage bandwidth, and memory usage of each application running on the server. By controlling these system resources at the application level, it can ensure that any application, regardless of priority, gets the resources it needs to run at any given point in time. It also provides a set of abstractions that lets data center administrators organize application processes into logical units and assign capacity to each unit.
Next up is AvS-Batch, which is now integrated with LSF
Evergrid AvS-Batch captures the collective state of distributed, parallel and/or long running applications, and prevents downtime due to hardware or software failures by performing checkpoint, migration and recovery of the application to ensure automatic failover across multiple nodes and tiers. AvS-Batch also ensures that when a job is pre-empted by a scheduler, the job is simply checkpointed to disc (sic) to allow a higher priority job to run to completion, and is then resumed, ensuring that it never loses a compute cycle. Stateful job pre-emption optimizes resource utilization while providing a much more deterministic completion time for applications. The integration of AvS and LSF is an example of how AvS can be integrated with leading job schedulers to provide this critical set of functionality.
