This week Adaptive Computing announced that the COSMOS Supercomputer Consortium, founded by Stephen Hawking and part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council DiRAC High Performance Computing facility, has chosen Moab HPC Suite 7.2 to manage its groundbreaking scientific computing workloads. Moab will coordinate jobs and allocate computing resources for research in cosmology and astrophysics, including simulations of the origins of the Universe and science exploitation of satellite experiments.

“Research in fundamental cosmology is fast-moving and internationally competitive,” said Prof Paul Shellard, COSMOS Director. “We have to adapt our flexible operating model rapidly and we need a company breaking new ground to support the very latest HPC technologies, thus we selected Adaptive Computing for our workload management software.”

This research will utilize a new SGI UV 2000 supercomputer with 1,856 Intel Xeon E5 cores and 1,891 Intel Xeon Phi cores. Adaptive Computing has worked closely with Intel and SGI to enable Moab to manage and schedule this cutting-edge system. Check out the Moab HPC Suite at the Adaptive Computing booth #2643 at SC12.
