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 […]

SC14: HPC MATTERS – Scientific-Computing

In November 2014, the international supercomputing conference and exhibition SC14 returns to New Orleans, city of food, music, culture . . .and high-performance computing   3M (#758) makes more than 60,000 products and solutions: from Post-It notes; to respirator masks; to data centre cabling. At Supercomputing 2014, 3M will dive into how the company is […]

Convergence of High-Throughput Computing (HTC) with HPC

While HPC workloads are compute- and data-intensive and can sometimes take several months to complete, High-throughput computing (HTC) jobs have by nature extremely short runtimes, usually in the millisecond range. Nearly all HTC jobs can be classified as “embarrassingly parallel,” which means the workload can be divided up into multiple, autonomous pieces, each of which […]

Univa Grid Engine Does Windows, Linux Containers – EnterpriseTech

Grid Engine, the popular workload management tool for distributed computing environments, now does Windows. And it is also doing Linux control groups, or cgroups, containers, a technology that was championed by Google many years back as the basis for its internal resource control on its massive clusters. The support for Windows was made at the behest […]

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 […]

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 […]

Faster Playback: How Upgraded Language Gives Moab Wings

I listen to a lot of audio books on my smartphone. One of my favorite options in the app lets me adjust playback speed; I often rip through novels or non-fiction books at twice normal speed. The science that makes this possible is more sophisticated than you might guess. A naive “fast playback” feature would suffer from a […]

Put Some Nitro In Your HPC Engine — Announcing MTM “Early Availability” Preview

All of us need to get more work done, faster. This is certainly true in traditional HPC, and it’s also imperative in map/reduce clusters, render clusters, and clouds. The dawn of exascale computing and the juggernaut of Big Data both demand that we get comfortable with millions of jobs in a queue, and thousands of […]
