Altair Moves forward with PBS Pro 13 at ISC 2015

bill

In this video from ISC 2015, Bill Nitzberg from Altair describes why PBS Professional 13.0 is the biggest release yet for the company. “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.”
