PBS Pro from Altair Goes Open Source at ISC 2016

In this video from ISC 2016, Bill Nitzberg provides an update on Alair’s release of source code for PBS Professional Workload Manager. “Altair is making a big investment toward uniting the whole HPC community to accelerate the state of the art (and the state of actual production operations) for HPC scheduling. We are dual-licensing PBS Professional, both open source and commercial.”

Review of the SGI Management Suite

Properly managed HPC supercomputers can deliver sustained Return on Investment for production supercomputing. To ensure ongoing operations are at peak efficiency, system management capabilities should not only include system monitoring and configuration tools, but also workload management, automated power capping, and error and fault detection capabilities.

Video: Univa Grid Engine Speeds Workloads with Intel Xeon Phi Processor

In this video from ISC 2016, Bill Bryce from Univa describes the company’s innovative container technology helps customers manage their computing workloads with Univa Grid Engine. “Grid Engine 8.4.0 has many significant updates including Docker support and integration with the new Intel Xeon Phi processor,” said Bill Bryce, Vice President of Products at Univa. “This latest release will allow a user or administrator to schedule jobs so that the right business-critical jobs are prioritized over other workloads-thus maximizing shared resources and allowing Univa customers to gain velocity.”
