AUSTIN, Texas, Oct 12 -- Univa, the data center optimization company, today announced that effective immediately StackIQ, the leader in multi-server management systems for clusters and clouds, will market, sell and support Univa Grid Engine to its customer and reseller channels. With more than 10,000 data centers using Rocks and Grid Engine, this partnership brings together two of the most widely deployed and trusted HPC management products.
The arrangement will allow organizations to more easily implement the most scalable and high performing distributed computing solutions on the market. With out-of-the-box integration into Rocks+ with the Univa Grid Engine Roll, the deployment and configuration of Univa Grid Engine is fully automated and seamless. In addition, this solution provides a leading, independent alternative solution for Platform LSF partners.
Key value points:
-- Commercial support across the full stack
-- Complete solution across all HPC & technical computing industries
-- Ready to go right out of the box.
"Rocks+ is the leading solution for managing clusters and clouds at scale," said Gary Tyreman, CEO of Univa Corporation. "With over 10,000 data centers using Rocks we are excited to partner with StackIQ and offer the leading complete, integrated workload management solution."
"I am thrilled with the partnership StackIQ and Univa have forged," said Joe Markee, CEO of StackIQ. "Now, we can work together to bring a powerful, comprehensive, cluster management solution to the marketplace."
The open source Rocks Cluster Distribution has been the de facto standard for building and running compute clusters for more than a decade. Rocks+ is the commercial edition of Rocks that provides an end-to-end cluster operating environment to manage the Linux operating system, cluster management middleware, libraries, compilers, and monitoring tools.
Rocks+ includes software developed by the Rocks Cluster Group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego and its contributors.
Univa Grid Engine is engineered, tested and fully supported by the Univa Grid Engine Team. More details can be found at http://www.univa.com/products/grid-engine.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
