UnivaUD [via Grid.org] has officially announced the launch of their latest project. The Open HPC Management Interoperability Project [OHMI] will focus on simplifying the management of high performance computing systems, thereby reducing the associated costs. The project is a collaboration between UnivaUD, Sun, BioTeam and Grid Gateway and Runtime Design Automation.
Many interoperability initiatives have been designed to enable applications to run out of the box, but there are several aspects of HPC systems that have yet to standardize,” said Gary Tyreman, vice president and general manager of HPC for Univa UD, in a statement.
Fritz Ferstl, of Sun GridEngine fame, also chimed in.
Sun is a significant contributor and supporter of standardization,”
said Fritz Ferstl, Director of Grid and High Performance Computing
engineering at Sun Microsystems. “This project, with increased industry
support, will result in a great improvement in our customers’ ease of
implementing and managing their cluster environments.”
