Univa's UniCloud 3.0 to plug Grid Engine to clouds

By Rajani Baburajan April 28, 2011

Univa, the data center optimization company, announced the launch of UniCloud 3.0, a software solution that plugs Univa Grid Engine into any cloud management system. UniCloud is designed to enable public and private cloud resources to be used with existing HPC workflow, the main advantage being that it extends the reach of cloud systems to Grid Engine, the largest HPC user community with more than 10,000 deployments.

 

“The advantages of meshing grid and cloud systems management include ubiquitous resources, system and workload mobility, and the unleashing of advanced features like seamless cloud bursting and check-pointing,” said Fritz Ferstl, CTO of Univa, in a statement. “Univa’s approach brings the Grid Engine community closer to reaping the many benefits of cloud.”

 

Univa’s UniCloud simplifies the configuration and management of HPC compute infrastructure across any cloud by connecting to systems management products and clouds. Leveraging the easy-to-use UniCloud, organizations can reduce mistakes through the automation and synchronization of management tools and reduce coding through the integration of existing workflow into cloud resources.

 

Company officials said the adapter plug-in design of UniCloud makes connecting new management tools or cloud services simple. UniCloud includes adapters to all the leading public cloud and private cloud providers, including Amazon AWS, Rackspace, GoGrid, and Private Cloud infrastructure Oracle VM and VMware vSphere.

 

Recently, Univa announced its strategy and development plans for a complete reference architecture and software stack designed to deliver new levels of data center optimization. Univa’s ‘continuous optimization’ capability lets companies achieve high levels of operational efficiency through improved resource sharing, amplified productivity of people and processes, and increased application and license utilization.
