Adaptive Computing and Voltaire Join Forces to Deliver Automated Data Center Optimization

 

Supercomputing 09, PORTLAND, Oregon—November 17, 2009—Adaptive Computing, the company behind the Moab® unified intelligent automation technology, said today it has signed an agreement for Voltaire to OEM and integrate Moab Adaptive Computing Suite as part of Voltaire’s Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) software platform that provides IT managers with the tools to control and optimize performance of large server and storage scale-out fabrics. Voltaire will offer the integrated solution as the Voltaire UFM Adaptive Suite, the industry’s first and only solution for managing data center resources that span compute, I/O, network and applications.

“In today’s environment, HPC, data center, or cloud computing facilities must support a diverse variety of workloads and constantly changing resource requirements. The ability to adapt the network fabric in addition to compute and storage resources is critical to overall data center efficiency,” said Michael Jackson, president of Adaptive Computing. “By integrating Moab with Voltaire’s UFM software, we can fully automate network configuration management to meet the needs of security-conscious multi-tenant cloud and data center environments.”

Voltaire’s innovative UFM software and smart fabric-switching solutions enable users to model application and job requirements, automatically configure the fabric to fit the application layout, configure quality of service (QoS) and congestion-management policy, and partition fabric resources. By integrating UFM with Adaptive Computing’s Moab® unified automation intelligence software, the fabric can be managed as a dynamic resource with policy automatically generated based on job layout and requirements. As a result, overall data center performance and efficiency increase significantly while congestion and latency are reduced by a factor of ten.

“As data centers continue to adopt scale-out and cloud architectures, the need for automation increases,” said Asaf Somekh, vice president of marketing, Voltaire. “Combining the intelligence of Voltaire’s UFM software and the dynamic provisioning capabilities of Moab gives us a unique ability to help our customers optimize their infrastructure and improve the performance and efficiency of their data centers.”
