NAPLES, Fla., September 29, 2021 – Adaptive Computing Enterprises, Inc., a trusted leader in high-performance computing and enterprise software, is pleased to announce the new version of the intelligent cloud management platform for on-demand data centers. This will make HPC in the cloud accessible to small and medium-sized businesses for whom high-performance computing is typically out of reach. Organizations can set up temporary or long-term cloud infrastructure resources as needed, rather than planning an expensive and time-consuming hardware purchase and installation. You can expand your on-premises systems and, if there are peaks in demand, you can use a “real hybrid cloud” for additional computing capacity for public cloud providers. Now anyone who needs it can get HPC in the cloud and run powerful computationally intensive applications for AI, machine learning, deep learning, data analysis, CAE, EDA, VFX rendering, and reservoir simulations, even if they don’t have local systems. This can mean faster time to market and results, and it can give you a significant competitive advantage.
Adaptive Computing is known in the high-performance computing arena for its patented AI-HPC workload and orchestration platform, Moab HPC Suite, which automates the planning, management, monitoring and reporting of HPC workloads on a large scale. The ODDC is built into Moab but can work with any other HPC scheduler or alone without a scheduler using the ODDC job queue.
The on-demand data center is the most powerful and at the same time the simplest cloud enablement technology currently available. The interface of the ODDC acts as a “single pane of glass”, which offers insights into your entire cloud ecosystem and enables the orchestration of infrastructure, applications and data across multiple cloud clusters. It is a turnkey cloud platform that acts as the operating system for the cloud and is designed for end users who have no cloud or technical knowledge. It opens the door for those who don’t want to struggle with multiple tools to get it right. And the ODDC automation functions can be set to shut down cloud instances when not in use to control cloud usage costs. The savings can be up to over 50%.
“While Adaptive Computing works with all major cloud service providers in HPC and Enterprise, we are particularly pleased about our close partnership with Oracle Cloud. It’s a win-win situation for our customers and prospects who want HPC in the cloud. Together we deliver superior capabilities at the most competitive price. ”- Art Allen, CEO, Adaptive Computing
The integration of Adaptive Computing with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) enables joint customers to seamlessly set up and run jobs on OCI with levels of performance comparable to their on-premises systems. OCI offers bare metal HPC compute instances with high core frequencies and cluster networks, which leads to significant performance improvements over other public clouds and on-site data centers. In addition, OCI offers the latest in computing hardware, fast and dense local storage, and an ultra-low latency RDMA cluster network, all while offering the flexibility and benefits of the cloud that you pay for what you use.
“We are pleased that Adaptive Computing is joining other providers of HPC platforms on OCI. Adaptive’s on-demand data center gives Adaptive customers access to some of the best performing hardware in the cloud, next-generation GPUs and ARM processors. The interface and automation of the on-demand data center provides customers with a seamless migration to Oracle’s HPC solutions on OCI. ”- Taylor Newill, Senior Director, High Performance Computing, Oracle Cloud
The on-demand data center is out-of-the-box with a high degree of preconfigured automation that can also be customized. This simplifies the whole process of deploying clusters and running workloads on cloud resources. Connections to all major cloud providers are already built into the graphical and command line interfaces, so you don’t have to rely on IT staff or cloud experts when using the ODDC platform.
New functions in ODDC version 6.0 improve the functionality and include:
• Accounting Reporting: Administrators can track cloud usage per user or job.
• A new version of TORQUE planned as GA, with the next release of the Moab HPC Suite planned within the next 6 months.
• Increased security through defined administrator and user roles. Only administrators can provide resources. Users are only allowed to run jobs.
• Cluster collaboration: One administrator with an infinite number of users.
• Improved integration with ODDC Connect and Moab.
• RDMA fully integrated into InfiniBand.
• New pause function: computing instances are stopped instead of terminated and can be restarted instead of being recreated and redeployed.
