Univa Accelerates Enterprise Migration of HPC Workloads to the Cloud
(Supercomputing SC'18 Booth # 2226)--Univa (News - Alert)®, a leading innovator
in enterprise-grade workload management and optimization solutions for
on-premise and hybrid cloud high-performance computing (HPC), today
announced a significant advancement in the migration of HPC workloads to
the cloud with the release of Navops Launch 1.0, the latest version of
the most powerful hybrid HPC cloud management product. Navops Launch
meshes public cloud services and on-premise clusters to cost-effectively
meet increasing workload demand.
The Navops Launch platform helps HPC organizations manage cloud spending
and audit usage. This latest product uses an automation
engine that integrates cluster and cloud management systems with
end-user defined metrics to fully inform intelligent cloud workload
placement actions. With Navops Launch, organizations can take advantage
of the virtually unlimited scalability, lightning-fast cluster creation
and the pay-per-use economics of hybrid HPC cloud computing with fully
automated control of spending and policies.
Navops Launch automation tightly integrates with Univa Grid Engine® and
its workload status and metrics collection to respond to changes in
workload demand and cluster utilization by expanding or contracting the
cloud footprint in a dynamic fashion. Once configured, administrators
have full control over tying cloud resource usage to a corresponding
budget without having to intervene manually. Built-in monitors report
the efficiency, use, spend and status of workloads placed in the cloud.
A unique automation engine allows Navops Launch to integrate third-party
data sources, including storage fabric, management systems, cluster and
cloud environment attributes. The use of these attributes can be tied
together with application metrics via a series of automation applets to
drive the insight into the scaling, data movement, cost decisions,
workload placement policie and tear-down of instances. Crucial aspects
of data locality and data movement can be automated with an applet, as
well and tied to the requirements of workloads and storage architectures.
Among the new capabilities in Navops Launch is an intuitive web
interface that makes it easy for cluster administrators to extend
on-premise clusters to their choice of cloud. Navops Launch is designed
to integrate into existing enterprise identity providers and
interoperate with cloud authentication services. Meeting the demands of
the enterprise cloud security team is simplified through integration
with cloud networking, name resolution, firewall, VPN, VPC settings and
support for "bring your own image" (BYOI) model that easily integrates
existing cloud images into a Navops Launch-managed Univa Grid Engine
environment. Built-in adapters exist for Amazon Web Services (News - Alert), Google
Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, OpenStack
and VMware vSphere.
"Navops Launch 1.0 is a breakthrough release for our enterprise
customers who are shifting workloads to the cloud," says Gary Tyreman (News - Alert),
president and CEO of Univa. "It addresses the major concerns about cloud
migration we hear most often from clients, including ease-of-use,
security, cost and concerns about data locality and synchronization.
Most importantly, it preserves customer investments in existing
applications and operations, and it can be deployed quickly with minimal
impact to existing environments."
"The new applet framework is particularly compelling for developers and
cluster administrators," added Bill Bryce, VP of products at Univa.
"Users can easily modify existing applets or write site-specific applets
supporting their own business needs and have them blend seamlessly into
the Navops Launch Web UI. We expect that ISVs, partners and customers
will all want to take advantage of this functionality to create a more
seamless experience for both administrators and end-users."
Navops Launch 1.0 has been proven in production enterprise hybrid cloud
architectures and dozens of end-user validations in 2018. It is used in
a variety of application environments, including HPC, enterprise
analytics and scale-out machine learning/deep learning. Navops Launch
also has built-in data collection and reporting so that customers can
easily account for workload and resource usage on-premise and across
multiple cloud platforms.
