Enterprise customers consistently demand improved performance from every component in their HPC infrastructure, including their workload manager. Ian Lumb, Solutions Architect at Univa Corp., speaks on the importance of an innovative workload manager to overall success.
“Grid Engine 8.5’s significant performance improvement for submitting jobs and reduced scheduling times will have a profound impact to our customers’ bottom line as they can now get more work done in the same amount of time. By reducing the wait time for end-users, our customers can save significant costs. Managing the purchase of more servers and getting higher throughput means deadlines can be met with confidence and on budget. Our goal was to increase the value Univa provides over previous versions of Grid Engine, including the popular open source version 6.2U5,” said Bill Bryce, Vice President of Products at Univa.
“It is extremely important that customers using the Veloce emulation platform maximize the usability of their datacenter-based emulation resources,” said Eric Selosse, vice president and general manager of the Mentor Emulation Division. “We’ve worked with Univa on a tight integration between Univa Grid Engine and the Veloce Enterprise Server App to streamline the workload management task.”
