Today Asetek announced that the company has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture.
“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.”
With the launch of Univa Small Jobs add-on for Univa Grid Engine, the company, the company offers “the world’s most efficient processing and lowest latency available for important tasks like real-time trading, transactions, and other critical applications.” To learn more, we caught up with Univa President & CEO Gary Tyreman.
“Supercomputing has reached a level of maturity and capability where many areas of science and engineering are not only advancing rapidly due to computing power, they cannot progress without it. I will illustrate examples from NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputer, and from major data-intensive projects including the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, and give thoughts on what will be needed going forward.”
