Interview: PBS Pro 13 is Biggest Release Ever for Altair

Bill Nitzburg, Altair

“The industry needs to accomplish a lot in the coming years to deliver a working, useful exascale machine. PBS Pro is only one piece of the puzzle… but it’s an important piece. Job scheduling and workload management are core capabilities – a “must have” for every HPC system – ensuring HPC goals are met by enforcing site-specific use policies, enabling users to focus on science and engineering rather than IT, and optimizing utilization (of hardware, licenses, and power) to minimize waste.”
