Organizations can understand their usage and unique requirements for clusters such as:
Monitor applications and license usage
Univa License Orchestrator™ enables maximum workload throughput for users, groups or projects with flexible sharing policies and simple configuration bringing administration efficiency.
Univa License Orchestrator integrates Univa Grid Engine software policies for managing the allocation of license features across users, groups or projects:
Univa License Orchestrator is designed by the same people who developed Grid Engine software - which has been battle-tested in thousands of mission critical environments across the globe - and this allows tight integration inside the scheduler which can only be found in Univa Grid Engine software.
Archimedes Slashed Hadoop Costs
Reduce costs of deploying Hadoop by 50%
The foundation of Big Data is infrastructure. Infrastructure is hardware and software that includes industry standard servers, storage, networking and clustering software. The most important element is the software that supports the applications. This is where Univa lives.
Univa software alleviates the challenges enterprises face when adopting Big Data solutions like Hadoop. Typically, organizations running Apache Hadoop for large-scale data processing had to run those applications on a dedicated cluster. Now, Univa® Grid Engine™ allows organizations to share infrastructure resources between Hadoop and other data center applications. This integration provides saving on hardware as well as the time and hassle of managing dual environments.
Univa Grid Engine software unifies Big Compute and Big Data workload management by making it possible to fully leverage and share existing clusters - ensuring the infrastructure is future-proofed.
Univa offers a range of benefits to Big Data applications:
Easily Connect Grid Engine Software to Clouds
Access on-demand cloud resources
The volume of high priority workloads grows daily within data centers, yet there is no room for errors or slow response times. Internal and external customers should not have to wait for resources and services because their IT infrastructure can‘t manage jobs effectively. Using Univa‘s UniCloud™ you can not only meet current needs more productively, but also expand your business and save money on infrastructure at the same time. UniCloud plugs Univa Grid Engine software into any cloud management system or service enabling public and private cloud resources to be utilized with existing HPC workflow.
