Post Altair and SGI Combine Forces for Power-Efficient Exascale

Today SGI and Altair announced a collaboration to develop scheduling and systems management solutions to support energy efficient computing at exascale levels. To get things started, SGI has entered into an OEM agreement with Altair that names the company its preferred workload management supplier, making it possible for SGI to more cost-effectively integrate Altair's PBS Professional scheduler on its HPC clusters.
The goal of the collaboration is for SGI and Altair to deliver a set of software to efficiently manage large scale systems for performance, resilience, and power optimization. With this software, capacity planning can be based on available power, scaling to meet the changing power requirements of a specific job or an entire workload. Focus areas for the project include workload and application profiling, and power rate and load scheduling. The solution will enable intelligent scheduling based on power consumption, so users can run jobs on the most energy-efficient resource for a given application, or apply policies that allow them to schedule jobs when energy rates are at their lowest.
