In this video from Moabcon 2013, Dick Bland and Jérôme Labat from HP present: The New Style of IT: HP Update for Moabcon 2013.
Cloud, Mobility, Security, and Big Data are transforming what the business expects from IT resulting in a “New Style of IT.” The result of alternative thinking from a proven industry leader, HP Moonshot is the world’s first software defined server that will accelerate innovation while delivering breakthrough efficiency and scale.
While the first spin of Moonshot is not targeted at HPC, Bland said that HP will be able to spin up new modules for the platform that could include FPGAs and ARM-based nodes more suited to high performance computing.
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Michael Jennings from LBNL presents: Warewulf NHC Update: Getting NHC Configured and Writing New Checks.
Warewulf Node Health Check is a community project which provides powerful, fully-customizeable framework for preventing jobs from being assigned to nodes which fail prescribed sanity checks. This presentation will provide a brief introduction to NHC for new users followed by a configuration walk-through and a demonstration of implementing custom check functions.”
This talk will help you understand Moab’s Power Management capabilities and how one might leverage the powerful capabilities of Moab’s Auto Power Management in one’s HPC environment to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Customer use cases will be presented to illustrate the ways leading companies are implementing these features to achieve real and significant results. Additionally, we will discuss best practices and general trends that we see in market today and in these best practices and trends influence Adaptive Computing’s product roadmap. Time will be allotted to accommodate a robust discussion around best practices and future product considerations.”
In this session we will demonstrate how to start migrating away from using the CLI to using GUI’s via MWS to interact with Moab. We will desmontrate how easy it is to make the jump and open up your HPC environment for more projects and departments in your organisation, as well as making life easier for your System Administrators.”
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Ian Nate from Adaptive Computing presents on the Adaptive User Community Portal. Currently in Private Beta, the portal will provide the Moab and TORQUE user communities with an easy way to ask questions, interact, and share best practices.
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Troy Baer presents: NICS, Adaptive Computing, and Intel: Leadership in HPC.
An Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer named Beacon, deployed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) of the University of Tennessee, tops the current Green500 list, which ranks the world’s fastest supercomputers based on their power efficiency. To earn its number-one ranking, the supercomputer employed Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors to produce 112.2 trillion calculations per second using only 44.89 kW of power, resulting in world-record efficiency of 2.499 billion floating point operations per second per watt.”
Today Adaptive Computing announced that its annual user conference, MoabCon 2013, will be held April 8-11 at the Hyatt Escala in Park City, Utah. Sponsored by Intel, HP, and IBM, the conference will bring together Adaptive Computing customers, partners and industry experts for four days of talks, technical sessions, and networking events.
MoabCon brings together the industry’s best minds to discuss how to optimize HPC and cloud resource management and utilization,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “In addition to discovering the myriad ways Moab solves today’s complex management problems, attendees will have the unique opportunity to interact with industry experts and discuss the latest issues and trends.”
MoabCon will feature end-user speakers from LBNL, NERSC, ORNL, NCSA, and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Read the Full Story and Register Now.
In this video, HP’s Marc Hamilton and Jerome Labat discuss the new HP Cloud with Adaptive Computing CEO Rob Clyde. Recorded at Moab.con 2012 in Park City, UT.
Preparing for its entry into the market for IaaS, Hewlett-Packard on Thursday launched a second beta program of cloud computing services it plans to offer commercially. The company’s HP Cloud Compute, HP Cloud Object Storage and HP Cloud Content Delivery Network services can now all be accessed by the public. All the services will be offered on an hourly pay-as-you-go model.
At the recent Moab.con user conference, Adaptive Computing announced that the University of Birmingham is broadening its user base with a Windows-based service for Microsoft HPC-aware applications that runs alongside their existing Linux-based service. This move will expand the availability of university’s HPC offerings to a wider variety of research disciplines, and is being made possible by the advanced scheduling capabilities of Moab, Adaptive Computing’s patented workload management technology.
To broaden our user base, we needed a more user-friendly HPC interface; however, we found that the native scheduler on the Windows system wasn’t well suited to a multi-user environment,” said Jonathan Hunt, IT Services University of Birmingham. “In adopting the new system, we decided to stick with the Moab technology from Adaptive. They are continually working to make their products better, and they’ve always been responsive to our needs.”
NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) is an advanced technology that enables Technical Computing users to remote access 2D/3D interactive applications over a standard network. Engineers and scientists are immediately empowered by taking full advantage of high-end graphics cards, fast I/O performance and large memory nodes hosted in “Public or Private 3D Cloud”, rather then waiting for the next upgrade of the workstations.
