Moab Cluster Suite from Cluster Resources is an advanced workload manager and scheduler capable of optimizing scheduling and node allocation decisions. The software will allow BSC to gain extensive control over which jobs are considered eligible for scheduling, how the jobs are prioritized and where the jobs will run.
Moab also simplifies and unifies management and acts as a flexible policy engine that guarantees service levels and speeds job processing. Moab will be used as an external scheduler for the SLURM resource manager. SLURM, developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Hewlett-Packard, is an open-source resource manager utilized on some of the most powerful supercomputers, such as BlueGene/L and ASC Purple.
The combination of Moab and SLURM will optimize the system performance of MareNostrum, allowing BSC to more efficiently conduct all scientific projects. Both tools will be deployed and installed by February.
“One of the important characteristics of the Moab-SLURM solution is its ability to handle applications simultaneously running across very large number of MareNostrum’s processors and using a large number of processors is key to BSC’s users,” said Sergi Girona, Operations Director of BSC. “The BSC’s Computer Sciences Department has also a lot of expectations with Moab because it allows dynamic integration and evaluation of new scheduling and resource allocation algorithms.”
MareNostrum’s adoption of Moab continues the trend of the largest and most powerful supercomputers in the world adopting Moab, as currently 5 of the top 6 systems on TOP500 have Moab. Leading supercomputing centers currently using Moab include the Sweden National Supercomputer Center, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
