Moab HPC Suite 7.0

Adaptive Computing Offers the Next Generation of High-Performance Computing with Moab HPC Suite 7.0

PROVO, Utah – March 13, 2012Adaptive Computing, managers of the world’s largest supercomputing systems and experts in intelligent workload management software high-performance computing solutions, today announced the availability of the Moab HPC Suite 7.0, its new, enhanced data center system offering designed to improve IT service delivery. Moab HPC 7.0 is designed to boost system productivity and hardware utilization rates, delivering a seamless scheduling and balancing of workloads.

The new HPC suite is powered by Moab, Adaptive Computing’s patented workload management technology, designed to prevent service failures by correctly deploying applications and infrastructure elements, and optimizing hardware to reduce costs.

“In today’s economic climate, it’s vital that businesses be able to maximize their investments and get the most of their resources,” said David Jackson, founder and CTO, Adaptive Computing. “The new version of our Moab HPC suite introduces enhanced capabilities surrounding scalability, reliability and productivity — providing customers with the best-in-breed workload management solutions currently available on the market.”

Moab HPC Suite 7.0 introduces several new features to enhance the HPC experience:

The TORQUE 4.0 job resource manager has been developed to improve scalability management as resource needs intensify. TORQUE allows users to save time as they initiate tasks with Job Radix, running jobs spanning up to hundreds of thousands of nodes. It also improves network communications by utilizing TCP to transfer data between nodes and more efficiently distributes communications.

New job cancellation policies enhance the efficiency of the system by eliminating the remaining sub-jobs once the solution is found.

Because users have differing database preferences, Moab 7.0 incorporates additional ODBC-compliant database support for PostgreSQL and Oracle, among others.

Additional Enhancements

  • New Moab Web Services improve the integration within an organization’s environment.
  • Improved administrative dashboard to introduce one-click job submission.
  • Accounting flexibility gives administrators control over custom hierarchies to organize usage by business entity, according to budgets.

About Moab HPC Suite

Adaptive Computing offers two HPC workload management products with the patented Moab intelligence engine for policy-based, predictive scheduling across workloads and resources. Both products accelerate results delivery and maximize utilization while simplifying workload management across complex, heterogeneous cluster environments. The Moab® HPC Suite products leverage the multi-dimensional policies in Moab to continually model and monitor workloads, resources, SLAs, and priorities to optimize workload output. And these policies utilize the unique Moab management abstraction layer that integrates data across heterogeneous resources and resource managers to maximize control as organizations automate workload management actions.

Moab manages the world’s largest, most scale-intensive and complex HPC environments in the world including 40% of the top 10 supercomputing systems, nearly 40% of the top 25 and 36% of the compute cores in the top 100 systems based on rankings from
