Returns From Lincoln Ascent

Some of the numbers have started to come in from work done for Lincoln Ascent and things are looking promising to this point. The parts that are rounding up right now focus on speeding up Moab’s scheduling iteration and reducing the network overhead between TORQUE and Moab. One of the excesses in network communication between […]

High Throughput Computing Toolset

A couple of years ago I visited the Arlington National Cemetery. It was a humbling experience to see so many graves of those who so bravely fought for and defended the freedoms that enabled a once oppressed people to found and build a great nation. I was impressed with the precision and respect on display […]

Scheduling the Middle Ground

As more and more financial services firms make the jump to HPC, some consideration needs to be made in getting the most out of the cluster resources employed. Financial applications are typically embarrassingly parallel jobs that only account of a few seconds each of computing time. HPC scheduling engines typically rely on longer running jobs […]

Moab and TORQUE: Divide and Conquer

Just like the area of an ever-increasing rectangle, the challenge of scheduling larger and larger HPC systems becomes, in the worst case, a problem of evaluating an ever-increasing number of jobs against an ever-increasing number of nodes to find the best fit. Partitioning the cluster helps with this problem in some cases, but when you […]

Adaptive Computing and HP Combine Technologies

We’re pleased to announce that Adaptive Computing has combined technologies with HP to deliver greater performance and higher throughput by running Adaptive Computing’s Nitro on HP Apollo Systems. The technology combo of Moab 8.0 and the HP Apollo Systems allows users to achieve even greater power savings due to the new power management capabilities in […]
