Univa Announces Collaboration with CPU 24/7

LEIPZIG, Germany, June 23 — Univa Corporation, the Data Center Automation Company, announced today at the International Supercomputing Conference a collaboration and technical partnership with CPU 24/7, the highly specialized IT service provider with a mechanical engineering focus, headquartered in Germany.

The two companies take pride in powering innovations of the future. Univa’s core product, Univa Grid Engine software, is a distributed resource management system that allows organizations to run large quantities of mission-critical, compute-intensive applications faster and more efficiently. While CPU 24/7 offers an HPC On Demand Solution that provides computing power resources in the field of numerical simulations and physical processes.

“Our dynamic HPC cluster portfolio, ‘Resource Area,’ covers short-term, on-demand processing power requirements,” said Alexander Heine, COO, CPU 24/7. “We recognize that Univa provides the only commercial application for Grid Engine and has developed an entire solution suite that complements our business objectives including modules such as UniCloud and License Orchestrator. We want to provide our customers with a seamless and transparent way to maximize computing resources, detect redundancies, and make it easier to control jobs in queue.”

“We are very pleased that CPU 24/7 has certified and collaborated with Univa. Now organizations will have the ability to distribute their workloads efficiently while utilizing temporary resource that allow them to run more complex and accurate simulations,” said Rob Secontine, Univa Vice President Sales and Marketing.

In addition to providing a seamless integration of Univa’s solutions for their customers, CPU 24/7 also uses the Univa Grid Engine software internally to manage its own projects.
