In this video, David Brooks from Univa describes how the company solves the hard problems of shared mission-critical and scaled high-performance datacenters.
Univa is a workload optimization company. Our core product, Grid Engine software, creates a single virtual high throughput, high performance and hyper-scale compute pool out of distributed data center resources. Our customers efficiently run large quantities of mission-critical compute-intensive applications faster with lower overall costs. The typical enterprise data center has a significant amount of server resources sitting idle. In fact, the average utilization rate is less than 25%. Our workload optimization solutions maximize the value of existing computing resources by efficiently sharing workloads across machines – increasing utilization to 90% or even 95%.
