Altair Engineering Inc. has announced the public release of PBS Professional 8.0. This latest generation of Altair's workload management software provides enhanced functionality and support for new hardware platforms. The announcement was made at Supercomputing 2006 (SC06), the international conference for high-performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis.
"Our PBS Professional 8.0 release is a major milestone for Altair," said Michael Humphrey, vice president of Altair's PBS GridWorks business unit. "We re-architected our software to address new trends in HPC, added a substantial number of customer-requested enhancements and continued our emphasis on tightly integrating with MPI libraries. Additionally, we expanded our quality assurance processes and beta program for this release, and produced an exceptionally high-quality release."
Major enhancements in PBS Professional 8.0 include:
"We participated in the PBS Professional 8.0 beta program and are excited about the new features and functionality," said Ghyslain Boisvert, site coordinator at the Universite of Montreal for RQCHP (Reseau Quebecois de Calcul de Haute Performance [Quebec High-Performance Computing Network]), a consortium of several institutions in the province of Quebec, Canada. "There are significant enhancements in the new version, and getting an early look at 8.0 has been most helpful in planning upgrades for our HPC systems."
PBS Professional is an open workload management solution for HPC environments. The software maximizes the utilization of computing resources by intelligently scheduling and managing computational workload in a number of industries. By increasing the efficiency of the hardware and software resources, PBS Professional reduces total cost of ownership and provides value to grid computing customers.
