Major new version delivers key capabilities for infrastructure management
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 17 -- SC09 -- Univa UD, a leading provider of cloud management software products, today announced UniCluster 5.0, a major new version of Univa's award winning infrastructure and workload management software stack that provides the underpinnings of Univa's cloud computing solutions.
UniCluster 5.0 features:
"UniCluster 5.0 delivers a higher level of functionality and performance for technical computing users looking for simplified and integrated management and provisioning tools," said Gary Tyreman, SVP of products and alliances at Univa. "With an unparalleled level of scalability and heterogeneity, the UniCluster stack offers lower total cost of ownership and features not common to other open source toolkits for commercial users."
"Sun is pleased to partner closely with Univa," says Fritz Ferstl, director Sun Grid Engine software for Sun Microsystems. "UniCluster adds a layer of functionality around Sun Grid Engine software that simplifies cluster management and reduces end user complexity and costs. In particular, UniCluster helps companies and organizations replace other schedulers with a rich set of functionality in a replicable and efficient manner."
UniCluster provides the framework for Univa's cloud computing solutions. Used as a building block for HPC clusters in internal or external computing environments, it is the open source component of Univa's infrastructure management suite. UniCluster features Sun Grid Engine software and Oracle Enterprise Linux, and is the leading solution for many top commercial companies who are migrating from expensive job schedulers in aerospace, EDA, oil and gas and life sciences.
"Oracle Enterprise Linux and UniCluster offer leading support to our HPC customers and can help reduce TCO," says Jeff Doolan, director of Virtualization and Linux channels for Oracle. "Customers can benefit from Univa's HPC and cloud management expertise to simplify the design and management of complex infrastructures. We look forward to working jointly with Univa."
UniCluster 5.0 is available at www.unicluster.org.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
