Univa Releases Navops Launch 2.0 for Migrating HPC & AI Workloads to the Cloud

Today Univa announced the general availability of Navops Launch 2.0, its flagship cloud-automation platform, designed to help enterprises simplify the migration of HPC and AI workloads to their choice of cloud. “With 9 out of 10 enterprises transitioning HPC workloads to the cloud, customers need proven solutions that simplify the migration of on-premise workloads to their choice of cloud,” said Rob Lalonde, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud, Univa.”

Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities

This whitepaper is an insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Univa. “Today many organizations solve their most difficult computational challenges by creating their own on-premises, compute-intensive, high performance data center. The latest hardware and software innovations have removed barriers that prevented many organizations from embracing HPC solutions. With more enterprises extending their own on-premises clusters into the cloud with hybrid configurations, finding the right tools for managing and scheduling workflows and automatically controlling cost remains a critical challenge.”

Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities

This whitepaper is an insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Univa® Corporation: Cloud Adoption for HPC:
Trends and Opportunities. Recently, InsideHPC ran a survey, sponsored by Univa, to identify the trends and opportunities for adoption of HPC workflows in the cloud. There were 143 respondents: 39% academic/non-profit, 17%  manufacturing or engineering, 11% government research; 59% North America, 24% Europe, 8% Asia; 59% with less than 20,000 employees. This whitepaper is a summary of what was learned from this survey.

Podcast: Full Rundown of SC19 Events in Denver

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team reviews the full list of events leading up to SC19 in Denver. “There’s a lot that happens before the exhibit floor opens on Monday night. Our old pal Rich Brueckner from insideHPC joins us to give us the full rundown. We even have a few parties to tell you about.”

Getting Smart About Slurm in the Cloud

This timely article from our friends over at Univa takes a look at how often the popular HPC workload manager Slurm (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) is used in the cloud. In a recent InsideHPC survey sponsored by Univa, all Slurm users surveyed reported using public cloud services to at least some degree.

Cloud Automation: Five Ways to Contain HPC Cloud Spending

This timely article from our friends over at Univa examines how the cloud is attractive for organizations that need fast access to specialized resources, and that want to avoid the cost and complexity of on-premise infrastructure. The article then offer five important ways that Cloud Automation can reduce cost.

Taming the Cost of HPC in the Cloud

This timely article from our friends over at Univa examines methods for reigning in costs for managing HPC in the cloud, specifically moving beyond cloud automation to cloud expense management. Three proactive approaches for managing costs in the cloud are provided. Special focus is given to Univa’s Navops Launch which is among the first of a new generation of HPC cloud automation tools that combines multi-cloud provisioning, cloud-service expense management, and tight integrations with Univa Grid Engine, and open-source SLURM workload managers both widely used in HPC centers.

Use Cases for HPC in the Cloud

In this special guest feature, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World looks at use cases for cloud technology in HPC. “In previous years there have been some concerns around security or the cost of moving data to and from the cloud, but these reservations are slowly being eroded as more users see value in developing a cloud infrastructure as part of their HPC resource.”

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.
