“Moab Viewpoint is the next generation of Adaptive Computing’s admin portal. This enhanced Web-based graphical user interface enables easy viewing of workload— status, reporting on resource utilization and other system metrics. The Moab Viewpoint Portal plays an instrumental role in ensuring SLAs are met — a key component of Adaptive Computing’s Big Workflow vision — by allowing HPC administrators to maximize uptime and prove services were delivered and resources were allocated fairly.”

Video: Moab Adds Elastic Computing Features

“We received an overwhelmingly positive response to the new Moab features during SC14, so we¹re very excited to make the new features generally available. In a competitive computing landscape where enterprises need to accelerate insights, Moab matters,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “Automating workload workflows is imperative to shorten the timeline to discovery, and this latest version of Moab represents a huge step forward in helping enterprises achieve that. We are excited to reveal our latest innovations and continue driving competitive advantage for our customers.”

Hyped Technologies that Won’t Shine in 2015

Enrico Signoretti

“100% Flash in the Datacenter? It won’t happen any time soon. Many (most?) tier one workloads will be moved to flash of course, but data is adding up so quickly that it’s highly unlikely you will be seeing a 100% datacenter any time soon. It will take a few years to have about 10/20% of data stored on flash and the rest will remain on huge hard disks (cheap 10+TB hard disks will soon be broadly available for example).”

Slidecast: Introducing Nimbix – Supercomputing Made Superhuman

Slide1

Nimbix is a pure high performance computing (HPC) cloud built for volume, speed and simplicity. “We give people the tools and the processing power to solve their biggest, toughest problems. We give you the freedom to imagine new possibilities, to test the limits of reality, and to model the future. We keep you one step ahead of the compounding problems of processing speed and infrastructure costs. And best of all, we do it faster, better, and more economically. We give you instant access and simple interfaces. We give you options and control. It’s supercomputing made super human.”
