Adaptive Computing Honors Customers with Second-Annual Adaptie Awards

Blue Waters, DigitalGlobe and Troy Baer Recognized at Moabcon 2014 for Breakthroughs Using Adaptive Computing’s Moab Software

PROVO, Utah (April 02, 2014) – Adaptive Computing, the company that powers many of the world’s largest private/hybrid cloud and technical computing environments with its Moab optimization and scheduling software, today announced the winners of its second-annual Adaptie Awards. Given to organizations and individuals that continually push the technological envelope using Adaptive Computing’s software, the Adaptie Awards were presented at Moabcon 2014, the company’s annual user conference in Park City, Utah.

Adaptie recipients include:

  • Best Use of Moab in a Big Workflow Environment – DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI)
    This leading global provider of high-resolution Earth imagery solutions is honored for being a thought leader in Big Workflow. DigitalGlobe is an infrastructure innovator breaking down silos of isolated resources and increasing maximum workflow capacity. This allows DigitalGlobe to operate at a global scale on a timeline its customers need and help decision makers better understand the planet in order to save lives, resources and time.In February 2014, Adaptive Computing announced its Big Workflow solution to process intensive simulations and big data analysis faster, more accurately and cost effectively by unifying all data center resources, optimizing the analysis process and guaranteeing services to the business.
  • Best Use of Moab in an HPC Environment – The Blue Waters Project at the University of Illinois’ National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)
    Scientists and engineers across the country use Blue Waters’ supercomputer – one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world and the fastest supercomputer on a university campus – to tackle a wide range of challenging problems, from predicting the behavior of complex biological systems to simulating the evolution of the cosmos.
  • Lifetime Achievement – Troy Baer, HPC system administrator, National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS), University of Tennessee
    Baer’s contributions in scheduling and resource management using Moab have helped Kraken, NICS’ flagship computing resource and the first academic computer to break the petaflop barrier, achieve outstanding 90-95 percent utilization rates since 2010. Baer’s administrative capabilities enable researchers in numerous scientific arenas, from climate to materials science to astrophysics, to achieve breakthroughs not yet possible on other resources. In November 2012, Baer helped NICS’ Beacon system secure a No. 1 ranking on the Green500 list of energy-efficient supercomputers.

“The entire team at Adaptive is continuously in awe of how our customers stretch the capabilities of Moab in various environments to cut through intense simulations and big data analysis to get results faster,” said Rob Clyde, CEO at Adaptive Computing. “Troy’s contributions to the industry cannot be overstated, and we are thrilled by the opportunity to salute his achievements at Moabcon.”
