Univa Brings Navops Launch Multi-Cloud Automation to the Slurm Community

Today Univa announced enhancements to its powerful Navops Launch HPC cloud-automation platform to support the widely-used Slurm workload scheduler. “Univa’s support for open-source Slurm – installed at approximately 60% of the leading HPC centers – is an important milestone in the evolution of HPC cloud-automation,” said Srini Chari, founder and managing partner of Cabot Partners. “Navops Launch is one of the few HPC management tools that is both multi-cloud and multi-scheduler.”

Interview: Univa Steps Up with NAVOPS 2.0 for moving HPC Workloads to the Cloud

Today Univa announced the newest release of its popular Navops Launch cloud-automation platform. Navops Launch 2.0 delivers new capabilities to help simplify the migration of enterprise HPC workloads to the cloud, enabling enterprises to transition HPC workloads to the cloud while reducing costs by 30-40 percent. To learn more, we caught up with Univa CEO Gary Tyreman.

Learn about Migrating HPC Workloads at Univa Cloud Meetups

Univa is hosting a series of Cloud Meetups September through October in nine cities. “Come and spend a few hours to learn about how to avoid the pitfalls of migrating HPC workloads to the cloud. We will showcase new technology that is designed to replace and automate manual processes. The Meetups exhibit best practice approaches to hybrid and dedicated cloud clusters. Recent survey results of HPC cloud spend will be discussed.”

Univa Powers Intel Select Solutions for HPC & AI Converged Clusters

Today Univa announced that the company is participating in the Intel Select Solution for HPC and AI Converged Clusters. “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.”

Univa Navops Launch Speeds HPC Workload Migration to the Cloud

Today Univa announced its latest version of Navops Launch, version 1.1, which offers enterprise users the ability to migrate their HPC workloads and processes to the cloud with higher efficiency and agility. “The Univa team designed its newest version of Navops Launch to help make the administration of day-to-day cloud usage simpler than an unrestricted cloud queue as a way to help control costs, while still optimizing on efficiency and agility. We strive to make our customers cloud experience as close to a NoOps model as possible.”

Univa to Host HPC Cloud Breakfast Briefing at ISC 2019

Our friends at Univa will host a Breakfast Briefing on HPC Cloud Efficiency at ISC 2019. The meeting takes place June 19 at 8:00am – 10:00am in Frankfurt, Germany. “Migrating workload to a hybrid cloud comes with expense and risks. Univa can greatly reduce the risk of HPC Cloud and save costs with intelligent workload placement, data staging and automation. A panel of product executives from Amazon Web Services will join Univa to share real-world use cases and discuss best practices.”

Univa Launches HPC Cloud Migration News Portal

Today Univa launched a HPC Cloud Migration, a new portal for news, events, and resources centered around High Performance Computing. “The high-performance computing industry is at an exciting growth stage, fueled by new application deployment models (such as AI and machine learning) new cloud-service offerings and advances in management software. HPC is all about scale and speed in which users are pushing to accelerate their most complex HPC workloads’ time to completion. As a result, IT organizations are looking to maximize their HPC computing resources for harnessing the cloud.”

Turbocharge your HPC Hybrid Cloud with Policy-based Automation

While there are many advantages to running in the cloud, the issues can be complex. Users need to figure out how to securely extend on-premise clusters, devise solutions for data handling and constantly keep an eye on costs. Univa’s Robert Lalonde, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud, explores how to turbocharge your HPC hybrid cloud with tools like policy-based automation, and how closing the loop between workload scheduling and cloud-automation can drive higher performance and dramatic cost efficiencies.

Data Management: The Elephant in the Room for HPC Hybrid Cloud

While there are many benefits to leveraging the cloud for HPC, there are challenges as well. Along with security and cost, data handling is consistently identified as a top barrier. “In this short article, we discuss the challenge of managing data in hybrid clouds, offer some practical tips to makes things easier, and explain how automation can play a key role in improving efficiency.”

Building the business case for Hybrid HPC Cloud

Over the past two years, we’ve seen a dramatic acceleration in cloud adoption for HPC. Intuitively cloud computing makes sense — it enables organizations to rent rather than buy expensive HPC hardware, deploy solutions faster, reduce capital investments, and focus on core competencies. Software company Univa highlights the reason behind the recent cloud adoption boom among the HPC community, and the benefits of the hybrid HPC cloud.
