Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software, today announced the release of two new editions of its Moab HPC Suite: Application Portal Edition and Remote Visualization Edition. These two new solutions are designed to leverage next-generation access models to simplify the collection and interpretation of data, improving the time it takes to achieve meaningful results.
Moab HPC Suite – Application Portal Edition
With an integrated NICE EnginFrame application portal, Moab streamlines the process of accessing job information by making it all available from a single point – applications, data, resources and job submissions – thus keeping costs to a minimum throughout the design and research processes. It supports the most common ISV and open-source applications used in a variety of disciplines, including manufacturing, energy, life science, government and education, without requiring users to undergo specialized HPC training. Data is also stored efficiently to minimize the need for file transfers.
It also makes it easier for users to collaborate on jobs, while maintaining security through standard browser access. This allows users both inside and outside the organization to access the data, which is encrypted for transmission. Access can be granted based on user groups, applications or resource parameters.
This edition of Moab also reduces costs by improving the efficiency of accessing and sharing the centralized pool of resources. Its advanced scheduling policies allow maximum HPC resource utilization by more users. Application licenses are also pooled to reduce costs and improve service to users. In addition, policies and usage budgets are enforced to ensure that service level agreements are met and project priorities are maintained. This enables optimized use of the centralized HPC storage capacity.
Moab HPC Suite – Remote Visualization Edition
The new Remote Visualization Edition of Moab allows organizations to take advantage of the ability to consolidate workstations into centralized resources, saving money and making specialized computing resources available to more users. This reduces management costs by keeping overhead low, as well as keeping network congestion at a minimum by removing the need to transmit full data sets. The result is less data transfer time lags for users. Less data transmission in turn reduces energy usage and storage costs as storage is centralized. This approach also minimizes security risks, keeping data sets closer to the centralized computing resources. Its shared pool of resources also decreases software licensing costs.
The Remote Visualization Edition also provides guaranteed shared visualization resource access for users, with automated policies and budgets that enforce priorities and service levels. Moab’s allocating and scheduling policies enable workload packing, allowing optimized utilization of GPUs and other accelerators, as well as multiple Linux user sessions on a single machine. Changing demands within workloads can also be better managed by Moab’s ability to dynamically re-provision the operating system as needed.
Moab HPC Suite – Remote Visualization Edition also includes an integrated NICE EnginFrame Views portal, as well as NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization, allowing secure remote access to cloud sessions with ideal compression, in Linux, Windows or virtual environments.
Moab HPC Suite – Application Portal Edition and Moab HPC Suite – Remove Visualization Edition are available in November from Adaptive Computing as well as through our partner, HP, and HP’s reseller and integrator partners.
“In order for our customers to get the most out of our cluster technology, it’s important that they be able to schedule and allocate resources as effectively as possible,” said Jan Wallenberg, CEO of Go Virtual. “That’s where Moab comes in. Its efficiency makes a significant difference in the user experience and overall performance of the system.”
“We’re excited to see NICE EnginFrame and Desktop Cloud Visualization included in these latest versions of Moab,” said Andrea Rodolico, CTO of NICE. “Integrating our leading-edge HPC portal and remote 3D visualization technology into the framework of Moab makes it an even more capable product, enabling greater usability and productivity for HPC users.”
“These latest editions of Moab demonstrate our continued commitment to improving the user experience of Moab as well as the back-end functionality,” noted Michael Jackson, president of Adaptive Computing. “By integrating the latest technology from other industry leaders into our solutions, we are making HPC systems run more effectively, which means manufacturers and researchers can more quickly bring their discoveries to the world.”

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
