Today Univa announced that the company is participating in the Intel Select Solution for HPC and AI Converged Clusters. Based on the company’s Univa Resource Broker and Univa Grid Engine, this collaboration between Univa and Intel allows HPC, AI and high-performance data analytics (HPDA) to work in the same infrastructure and eliminate time-consuming data transfer for users.

Univa Grid Engine has been deployed thousands of times in business-critical clusters, and we want to ensure this community of users can add mixed HPC, AI and HPDA workloads to their environments in an efficient way,” said Univa CEO Gary Tyreman. “By giving our customers a path to take this next step, Intel has likewise put a lot of work into developing a set of solutions that support pooling of individual workload-optimized clusters to create a uniform computing environment that can run cloud and HPC, AI and HPDA workloads 24/7 – even when the clusters are located on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment, or if some of the user-base wants to run accelerators or run apps in a cloud-based environment.”

This converged environment for HPC and AI helps eliminate the burden of data transfer between multiple environments to enable faster time to insights. Through the workload-optimized performance delivered by Intel Select Solutions, customers can reap the benefits of a converged environment that offers a 4x faster inferencing performance improvement with the built-in Intel Deep Learning Boost for a faster time-to-results. In the end, this solution gives HPC customers a path to adopt AI on the 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor environment.

With Intel Select Solutions for HPC and AI Converged Clusters, users now have the confidence they need to quickly deploy and achieve the performance results they want and expect, whether deployed on-premise or in the cloud.
