Taking a Look Back at MoabCon 2014

MoabCon 2014 was one for the books! Industry leaders in HPC, cloud, and big data all joined in Park City, Utah for four days of technical sessions, networking events, and opportunities to ask the experts. We heard from Adaptive Computing leaders, keynotes from HP Cloud, DigitalGlobe, and DOW Chemical Company, plus technical sessions lead by many […]

A Farewell to Kraken

Guest Post: Troy Baer is a Senior HPC System Administrator at the National Institute for Computational Sciences, University of Tennessee. At MoabCon 2014, Troy was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award for his contributions in scheduling and resource management using Moab. Noon on April 30, 2014 marked the end of an era. After over five years of faithful […]

MoabCon 2014: You Should Have Been There

Hopefully, you were one of the many people who attended MoabCon this year in beautiful Park City, Utah. If you weren’t, there’s really only one thing I can say, You really missed out. Really, you did. It was a wonderful few days filled with inspiring stories, new innovations, exciting futures, good friends and, of course, […]

Inside Operation “Deep Insight”

At MoabCon last week, I had the pleasure of introducing the public to the architecture of Adaptive Computing’s new product enhancement, code-named “Deep Insight.” This exciting add-on component, scheduled for the Kilby release in late Q2, is all about surfacing treasure that’s long been hidden beneath the surface of Moab’s internal object model. It captures […]

MoabCon 2014: Keynotes and Technical Sessions

Yesterday marked the first full day of MoabCon 2014! The day brought opportunities to dive deeper into Adaptive Computing’s software during insightful technical sessions, sparking engaging dialogue between customers and Adpative employees. In addition, MoabCon attendees heard from Adaptive Computing CEO, Rob Clyde, during the Opening Keynote and Jason Bucholtz from DigitalGlobe during the Customer […]

Second Annual Adaptie Awards

Here at Adaptive Computing, we’re continuously in awe of how our customers stretch the capabilities of Moab in various environments. That’s why we created the Adaptie Awards at MoabCon 2013 to honor specific individuals and organizations that continually push the technological envelope using Adaptive Computing’s software. At MoabCon 2014, we’re proud to announce the winners […]

MoabCon 2014: Experts Gather to Discuss the Latest in HPC, Cloud Computing, and Big Data

It’s that time of year again, MoabCon 2014! Join the Adaptive Computing team from March 31 to April 3 in Park City, Utah. The theme of the conference is “Accelerate Insights,” and will teach Moab users how to streamline the analysis process, reducing the time to discovery. MoabCon 2014 brings together Adaptive Computing customers, partners […]

The Dawn of Parallel Moab

One of the great ironies of the HPC industry is that the scheduling technologies that keep massively parallel supercomputers busy are, themselves, mostly serial. Moab and its competitors have their roots in theoretical work first productized in the 1980s and 1990. At that time, computer science mainly used parallelism for enormous matrix math problems—not for […]

Understanding Moab Scheduling: Part I

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Understanding Moab Scheduling

With MoabCon, Adaptive Computing’s yearly user conference, just around the corner, I thought I’d revisit the subject of a well-received talk I gave two years ago at the conference. This will be done in three parts covering the Moab scheduling cycle, the proper use of mdiag -S and finally a simple example of scheduling in […]

The Evolution of Regression Testing at Adaptive Computing

Many years ago our regression testing began as a few QA engineers looked through our documentation and wrote tests for the use cases and claims made there. This was a decent start with the obvious shortcoming that it didn’t account for the natural combinations of different parameters, which intrinsically cannot all be documented. We find […]
