Moab 6.0 and Moab Viewpoint 2.0 enhance command communications architecture and management features to meet the demands of extreme-scale HPC installations and grids
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 15 -- Adaptive Computing, the company behind the Moab unified intelligent automation technology, today announced two significant product upgrades that address the increasing complexity and size of next-generation HPC systems. Moab 6.0 and Moab Viewpoint 2.0 improve and simplify the command communications and reporting processes that have traditionally restricted the usability of HPC systems scaling beyond a few thousand nodes. The upgrades ensure that Adaptive Computing will maintain its leadership position managing the world's most advanced supercomputing systems as ranked by the bi-annual TOP500 list. Moab 6.0 and Moab Viewpoint 2.0 will be available in December 2010.
As today's HPC systems grow significantly in node and core count, together with the increasing adoption of hybrid systems deploying specialized technologies such as GPGPUs, managing and optimizing workloads becomes exponentially more complex. The latest versions of Adaptive Computing's Moab technology improve the speed and availability of state and command communication management by 100-fold, effectively streamlining the way in which administrators and users manage and interface with next-generation systems.
Adaptive Computing's solutions, powered by Moab, deliver intelligent governance that allows customers to optimally consolidate and virtualize resources, allocate and manage applications, improve service levels, and reduce operational costs. Since Adaptive Computing's founding in 2001 (as Cluster Resources Inc.), the company's Moab products have managed the world's largest computing installations and are the preferred intelligent automation solutions for the leading global HPC and datacenter vendors.
The Moab communications architectural redesign makes extensive use of multi-threading and a database of real-time job and node status information to address the management needs of extreme-scale HPC installations and grids. Other product enhancements to Moab 6.0 include:
Moab Viewpoint 2.0
Moab Viewpoint 2.0 includes new functionality to support HPC as a service and enterprise cloud capability. New features include:
"With every TOP500 list the leading systems set new records for scale and complexity that dramatically increase the challenge of managing resources efficiently and maintaining user satisfaction," says Michael Jackson, president of Adaptive Computing. "With Moab 6.0 and Moab Viewpoint 2.0, we are setting new manageability and ease-of-use standards that will maintain the highest levels of efficiency and usability of next-generation HPC systems with tens of thousands of nodes and hundreds of thousands of cores."

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

he study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

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.
