Interview: Happy Sithole on Workload Management at CHPC

happy

In the video interview shown below, Sithole describes how CHPC is on the fast track to acquire over a Petaflop of computing power in the next year to meet the demands of its regional scientists and engineers. That represents a daunting task for system management, and CHPC is already using PBS Professional software from Altair to keep their systems systems fully utilized.

Will Containerization Eat Configuration Management?

Christian Kniep

Over at QNIB, Christian Kniep writes that his latest presentation examines intersection of Docker, Containerization, and Configuration Management. “In my humble opinion, Configuration Management might become a niche. As hard as it sounds.”

Helping Scientists with System Management Software

In this video from SC14, Patrick Wohlschlegel from Allinea Software demonstrates how the company’s Performance Reports took has been integrated into HP’s cluster management system for system administrators.

Managing Cluster Complexity

HPC Cluster Success

If you open the back of today’s HPC cluster you will see lots of cables. There are any number of cables including those for power, Ethernet, InfiniBand , Fibre Channel, KVM, and others. The current situation creates the need for complex configuration and administration.

Today Bright Computing announced that the Institute of Aircraft Design at the University of Stuttgart is using the company’s Bright Computing Manager software in its HPC data center.

Break the Rules: Creating a complete HPC Solution with Cisco UCS and Bright Cluster

Bright Computing WP

Learn how a system built on Cisco UCS using Bright Cluster Manager is a complete HPC Ethernet solution that frees the IT manager, administrator, and users to focus on HPC results instead of managing a complex collection of hardware and software.

Six ways HPC Clusters Drive Design Optimization

Tighter budgets and a stricter regulatory climate are dictating the need for smaller product envelopes and new material choices. Engineers are tasked with these demands against a backdrop of fewer resources and shrinking time-to-market cycles. Now, you’ll learn how advanced simulation software can dramatically shorten the design phase by allowing engineers to virtually optimize and validate new ideas earlier in the process, minimizing the expense of building physical prototypes and streamlining real-world testing.

Ping Golf Optimizes Finite Element Analysis with Hyperworks

“We started using finite element analysis along with computational fluid dynamics, and we really needed a good tool that could work with all different kinds of software, and Altair really has those tools that are multi-functional across different software.”

The Beginning of an Era – HPC, Take Your Rightful Place in the Data Center

Jill King, VP of Marketing, Adaptive Computing

“Please join me in welcoming a new era — an era where HPC is the center of the business universe. It’s about keeping it simple and creating an ecosystem that adapts as demands dictate. Take the ease-of-use and collaboration of the cloud, couple that with the horsepower of HPC and extract the data necessary for the business to make game changing decisions. That’s the recipe for success and HPC is the cornerstone. HPC, take your rightful place in the data center.”
