Mellanox Technologies Extend Silicon Design HPC Cluster to Hybrid Cloud

Navops Launch extends on-premise EDA cluster to the cloud providing Mellanox with cost-effective on-demand capacity

Mellanox Technologies, a leading supplier of end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect products, needed a solution that would bridge their cluster management software to a future with a robust scheduler while leveraging hybrid cloud.

With a high-performance computing cluster running EDA design software and simulation for next-generation product development, superior workload orchestration is critical to the success of the Mellanox HPC environment. Having previously deployed an open-source workload scheduling system, Mellanox realized an enterprise-grade solution would improve stability and performance. They also wanted advanced features to help them maintain their leading-edge design work. By choosing Univa Grid Engine and Navops Launch, Mellanox achieved their goals and more by extending their cluster to the cloud.

Now Mellanox can intelligently address peak performance needs via hybrid cloud-bursting, a 'pay-as-you-go' hybrid model that augments local compute resources with those of Microsoft Azure, able to simultaneously run as many jobs as required. The result? Reduced time-to-market, increased capacity without the need for additional infrastructure, and reigned-in costs.

"By extending Univa Grid Engine to the Microsoft Azure Cloud, we gained practically infinite capacity from our hybrid cloud solution in a very cost-effective manner," Doron Sayag, IT Enterprise Computing Services Sr. Manager, Mellanox said.
