Delivers unified cluster software solution with green provisioning features
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 19 -- SC08 -- Altair (booth #933) today announced that it has integrated PBS Professional, its industry-leading on-demand computing software environment for grid- and cluster-computing, with the HP Cluster Management Utility (CMU), an efficient and robust tool for the management of HPC clusters and compute farms. Jointly, these products deliver to customers a seamless way to completely manage high-performance computing (HPC) cluster systems.
Together PBS Professional and HP CMU offer new Green Provisioning features to help customers manage central processing unit (CPU) frequency as exposed by the Linux kernel as well as monitor running jobs. This type of capability provides organizations an automated method to manage their systems and potentially lower electricity and other operational costs.
PBS Professional provides enterprises an easy way to share and optimize heterogeneous computing resources across geographic boundaries to run HPC-related jobs. The HP CMU provides a simple graphic interface that enables management of a HPC system from one console, and allows the user to monitor cluster-wide resources, as well as manage software installations. The two solutions are complementary, and necessary for most cluster environments.
"The integration of PBS Professional and HP CMU represents another step by Altair to become more of a complete solution to customers, versus a separate component," said Bill Nitzberg, GridWorks chief technical officer. "This solution provides a new level of control that allows customers to reduce the power costs required to run these large computing systems."
"Customers are struggling with the management complexities of high performance computing and need automated solutions that simplify operations across clusters," said Ed Turkel, product marketing manager of Scalable Computing and Infrastructure Organization at HP. "The robust functionality delivered by the integration of HP Cluster Management Utility with PBS Professional delivers the single view needed by customers to easily manage their cluster workload and improve overall productivity, while cutting costs."
