The morning of March 11, 2011, started off much like any other day for the nation of Japan; yet come late afternoon, it would bring much distress and heartache as a 9.0 magnitude earthquake would hit just off the coast – one of the five most powerful earthquakes ever recorded. That earthquake triggered powerful tsunami…

HLRN, established in 2001, is a joint project of the seven North-German states: Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein. HLRN currently runs Moab HPC Suite: Enterprise Edition on its distributed Cray XC30 supercomputing system, “HLRN III,” which is hosted at Zuse Institute Berlin and Leibniz University Hannover. Completed in January 2014, HLRN III…

Moab® HPC Suite is a workload and resource orchestration platform that automates the scheduling, managing, monitoring, and reporting of HPC workloads on massive scale. The patented Moab intelligence engine uses multi-dimensional policies and advanced future modeling to optimize workload start and run times on diverse resources.

The mathematical acceleration delivered by many-core General Purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) offers significant performance advantages for many classes of numerically intensive applications. Parallel computing tools such as NVIDIA’s CUDA and the openCL framework have made harnessing the power of these technologies much more accessible to developers, resulting in the increasing deployment of hybrid GPGPU-based…

It’s easy to move HPC workloads and data to the cloud with NODUS Cloud OS. Users can run their jobs, including test jobs or custom jobs, on any of the major cloud providers and switch between them. Watch this demonstration to learn more.

Consolidation and Grid: Many sites have multiple clusters as a result of having multiple independent groups or locations, each with demands for HPC, and frequent additions of newer machines. Each new cluster increases the overall administrative burden and overhead. Additionally, many of these systems can sit idle while others are overloaded.  Because of this systems-management…
