Launches Open HPC Management Interoperability Project

Univa UD, a pioneer in HPC systems management products for the complete distributed computing lifecycle today announced the launch of the Open HPC Management Interoperability Project on its open source community site, A collaboration with Sun Microsystems, BioTeam Inc., Grid Gateway, and Runtime Design Automation, the open source project’s primary goal is to simplify the challenges of managing HPC Systems and to reduce the associated costs.
“Many interoperability initiatives have been designed to enable applications to run out of the box, but there are several aspects of HPC systems that have yet to standardize,” said Gary Tyreman, vice president and general manager of HPC for Univa UD. “These non-standard aspects impact how effectively a system administrator integrates and manages the system.

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
