Voltaire and Platform Computing, today, announced plans to work together on the management of data center resources in virtualized and cloud computing environments. Through the integration of Voltaire Unified Fabric Manager(TM) (UFM) software and Platform LSF, intelligent workload scheduling and resource allocation extends from the application layer all the way down to the network fabric layer.
HPC is a promising early adopter market for cloud computing, with some substantial cloud initiatives under way, mostly on the private cloud side,” said Steve Conway, research vice president in IDC’s High Performance Computing group. “The partnership between Platform and Voltaire aims to provide organizations with the ability to optimize HPC data resources and manage intensive applications across virtualized and cloud computing environments.”
The combination of Platform LSF and Voltaire UFM software over InfiniBand enables our mutual customers to experience new levels of performance and efficiency for managing HPC data center virtualization and cloud computing technologies,” said Tripp Purvis, vice president, business development, Platform Computing. “The integration of Platform LSF with Voltaire UFM software extends Platform LSF’s ability to optimize the allocation of resources in the data center across the entire network for more efficient IT operations.”
