As supercomputers continue to grow in size and complexity, organizations must seek out solutions to increase efficiency. Two recent articles from insideHPC and one from Datacenter Dynamics provide examples of how Adaptive Computing is helping to provide those solutions.
In a January interview with insideHPC, Adaptive Computing’s Lee Carter and Chad Harrington, along with Wolfgang W. Baumann, support coordinator of HLRN, discussed the HLRN Consortium in Germany’s use of Moab to manage its new Cray Cascade supercomputers.
In the interview, Harrington speaks about the benefits of Adaptive Computing’s on-going relationship with Cray, “Cray makes many of the world’s largest systems and Moab is particularly well suited for very large systems and workloads. As a result, Adaptive and Cray work together to ensure that Moab can take best advantage of Cray’s unique architecture and capabilities.”
In January, insideHPC highlighted that Adaptive Computing powers the #1 systems on the TOP500 and Green500 lists with its workload management software. The Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge sits #1 on the TOP500 list using Adaptive Computing’s Moab HPC Suite and TORQUE to prioritize jobs.
At #1 on the Green500 list, The Beacon System at the National Institute for Computational Sciences at the University of Tennessee achieved peak performance.
Troy Baer, Senior HPC System administrator at the National Institute for Computational Sciences, University of Tennessee said, “One of the hallmarks of being green is keeping energy consumption at a minimum while maintaining performance. That means we need flexibility in scheduling, which makes Adaptive Computing’s Moab technology an indispensible tool for us.”
Datacenter Dyanmics: North-German Supercomputing Alliance to be Managed Using Adaptive Computing Moab
Datacenter Dynamics shared the news that Adaptive Computing will work with Cray Inc. to manage computing workloads for the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HRLN). This project showcases the long-standing partnership between Adaptive Computing and Cray Inc.
Peg Williams, Cray’s senior vice president of high performance computing systems said, “Joining forces with Adaptive Computing will allow us to run Cray XC30 at two HLRN locations in an extremely efficient and balanced way. By leveraging the Moab intelligence engine with our innovative supercomputing system, our combined offering provides organizations with an excellent integrated HPC solution.”
