Adaptive Computing to Work with Cray

Press Release

January 17, 2013

Adaptive Computing, a provider of High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management and private cloud management software, announced plans to work with Cray Inc. to manage computing workloads for the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN). Using its Moab HPC Suite, Adaptive Computing is managing HLRN’s computing workload on a distributed Cray XC30 supercomputing system of more than 6,500 network sockets, with nearly 1,000 more sockets expected to be added.

“We have been a long-time customer of Adaptive Computing because they allow us to fully meet our research objectives,” said Wolfgang W. Baumann, support coordinator of HLRN. “An additional benefit Moab offers is green functionality, which we will be implementing to help protect the environment through efficient usage. From flexibility of system administration to a strong policy engine, Moab’s key usability factors make it the best software to power our new system.”

Two HLRN sites – the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) and the High Performance Computing Center (RRZN) at Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany – are leveraging Adaptive Computing’s technology to support their advanced scientific research in a variety of fields, including bio-informatics, chemistry, climate and ocean modeling, engineering, environmental research, fluid dynamics and physics.

“Joining forces with Adaptive Computing will allow us to run Cray XC30 at two HLRN locations in an extremely efficient and balanced way,” said Peg Williams, Cray’s senior vice president of high performance computing systems. “By leveraging the Moab intelligence engine with our innovative supercomputing system, our combined offering provides organizations with an excellent integrated HPC solution.”

The HPC suite is powered by Moab, Adaptive Computing’s intelligent workload management software, which optimizes scheduling and management across workloads and resources based on policies. Accelerating results delivery and maximizing utilization, the Moab HPC Suite simplifies workload management across complex, heterogeneous cluster HPC environments. It leverages the multidimensional policies in Moab to continually schedule and monitor workloads, resources, SLAs and priorities to optimize workload output.

“We look forward to continuing our rewarding relationship with HLRN on their new system, one of the largest Cray deployments in Europe,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “Working with Cray not only bolsters our international presence, but is further evidence of the worldwide demand for our products.”
