In this video from Moabcon 2013, Adaptive Computing CEO Robert A. Clyde presents the first annual Adaptie Awards.

The Adaptie Awards provide a platform to recognize our customers for their cutting-edge achievements in the HPC and cloud communities,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “The myriad applications of Moab is truly inspiring, and we are proud to count such esteemed individuals and organizations as our customers.”

Adaptie Winners:

  • Best use of Moab in HPC: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
  • Best use of Moab in the Cloud: Bank of America.
  • Lifetime Achievement Award: Don Maxwell, ORNL.

The HPC systems team lead at ORNL was honored for his contributions to the HPC industry. Maxwell was instrumental in providing both requirements and testing for the initial port of Moab to the Cray X-series platform. He was awarded the ACM Gordon Bell Prize in 2008 as a member of a team led by Thomas Schulthess that used the ORNL Jaguar supercomputer to achieve 400+ TFlop/s sustained performance. Jaguar ran the Moab HPC Suite, and now, Maxwell uses the Moab HPC Suite on Titan, ORNL’s latest supercomputer, which was declared the world’s fastest in the latest semiannual TOP500 list, securing the No. 1 position.
