Today’s HPC supercomputers have significant power requirements that must be considered as part of their Total Cost of Ownership. In addition, efficient power management capabilities are critical to sustained return on investment.
Open source licensing for Altair’s market-leading HPC workload manager, PBS Professional, is now available. PBS Pro development communities are now forming and the full-core open source version of PBS Pro can be downloaded at www.pbspro.org. “Our intent is to continuously push the boundaries of HPC to pursue exascale computing through active participation with the HPC community,” says James R. Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO. “Working together toward common goals will allow for resources to be applied more efficiently. Our dual-licensing platform will encourage public and private sector collaboration to advance globally relevant topics including Big Data, cloud computing, advanced manufacturing, energy, life sciences, and the inexorable move toward a connected world through the Internet of Things.”
The SGI Management Suite’s system health monitoring and management capability collects health status information on fundamental system’s functions such as memory, CPU and power. It identifies changes that require action, automatically alerts the system administrator, and provides proactive solutions to correct the problem.
Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) introduced new high-performance computing solutions that aim to accelerate HPC adoption by enabling faster time-to-value and increased competitive differentiation through better parallel processing performance, reduced complexity and deployment time. These innovations include: HPE Core HPC Software Stack with HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility v8.0: Designed to meet the needs of […]
Today Univa announced the release of Univa Grid Engine Version 8.4.0 with preview support for the Intel Xeon Phi processor (formerly code-named “Knights Landing”), enabling enterprises to launch and control jobs on Intel Xeon Phi processor-based systems. The update simplifies running and managing applications on Intel Xeon Phi processor-based clusters.
Efforts to Broaden HPC Accelerate as OpenHPC Governing Board and Technical Steering Committee Takes Shape
Since its announcement at SC15 in November, the OpenHPC community has made important strides toward its mission of creating and supporting a flexible open source HPC software stack that simplifies deploying and managing HPC systems. In just a few short months, the open source community hosted at The Linux Foundation has had many productive working group discussions, installed a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and Governing Board, and even provided releases of the initial software stack based on early community feedback. The initial software stack includes over 60 packages, including tools and libraries, as well as provisioning, a job scheduler and more.
Pressures by management for cost containment are answered by improving software maintenance procedures and automating many of the repetitive activities that have been handled manually. This lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), boosting IT productivity, and increasing return on investment (ROI).
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is helping change the way genetic medicine is researched and practiced in Africa. Members of the Blue Waters team recently made it possible to discover genomic variants in over 300 deeply sequenced human samples to help construct a genotyping chip specific for […]
The NCSA Blue Waters project is offering a Workflows Workshop virtual course in August. To share this class with as many students as possible, they are seeking universities willing to be a local site and offer the course to their students.
Bright Computing’s recently appointed Silicon Valley-based management team, including CEO Bill Wagner and SVP Worldwide Sales Dan Kuczkowski, will be at the Bright booth, as well as Bright’s leading technical experts, giving booth visitors the opportunity to hear about Bright’s corporate strategy, the company’s latest product developments, and gain insight into the Bright roadmap.
