Reliable and Easy to Manage
Fundamental to achieving success in any area is starting with just making it work and making it easy to do. From the user experience to the reliability of the product itself, it has to work well. That experience also needs to be backed up with commercial support for your administrator and detailed reports to prove service delivery to management. The following are examples of elements that contribute to just making it work well:
- Application Templates, and Self-help Oriented Job Details
Reduce Job Failures
Application templates allow best-practices default answers to be applied to an application specific submission form. Self-help oriented job details views in the portal as well as job diagnostic commands allow users to resolve their own issues and continue being productive.
- Detailed Diagnostics and Statistics
Improve Job Processing Reliability
With detailed reports and diagnostics about jobs, troubleshoot why they are not running faster to improve the reliability of running workloads. These capabilities can be found both through command line queries and directly in the Viewpoint portal.
- Docker-based Checkpointing
Improve Application Recovery Time with Docker-based Checkpointing
Docker containers and their associated jobs can be checkpointed, thereby saving the container and file state for easier recovery.
- Workflow Management
Improve System Uptime
Automate node health check responses, reduce downtime with maintenance reservations triggers, and reduce overall errors with automating common tasks. Workflow management is an important capability which helps to automate both end-to-end workload and system processes. This eliminates manual intervention, thereby speeding processes and eliminating potential errors.
- Expert Support
