A new press release reports, “Univa, a leading innovator in enterprise-grade workload management and optimization solutions for on-premise and hybrid cloud high-performance computing (HPC), today announced its latest version of Navops Launch, version 1.1, which offers enterprise users the ability to migrate their HPC workloads and processes to the cloud with higher efficiency and agility. According to an Intersect360 report on Worldwide High Performance Computing, cloud spending by HPC customers grew by 44 percent from 2016 to 2017, placing cloud-based spending at around $1.1 billion for 2017. Though the highest potential for HPC cloud spend is yet to come, challenges still remain with customers seeking better solutions to manage and prioritize cloud usage. This newest version of Navops Launch delivers new data staging capabilities to help users prioritize how to migrate their data, based on when and what is needed.”
The release goes on, “With these new capabilities, users do not pay for cloud servers while the data is in flight when using a shared file system in the cloud. Additionally, Navops Launch’s unique automation features intelligently right-size and place workloads in the cloud to improve the cost efficiency for enterprise users migrating to the cloud. With visibility to workload and cloud metrics, Navops Launch can modify users’ workload resource placement requests in the cloud, so they are not required to change their workflow or submission scripts. These unique automation capabilities give HPC users the control and knowledge of where their workload is running and the related costs.”
