PBS 2020 -- Scheduling and Workload Management for the Next Ten Years
SESSION: PBS 2020 -- Scheduling and Workload Management for the Next Ten Years
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Bill Nitzberg, Scott Suchyta
ABSTRACT: HPC is facing an onslaught of commodity forces: commodity interfaces (Web 2.0), commodity hardware (GPUs), and commodity services (Clouds). However, real HPC has always been about pushing today's technologies just beyond where they work well. PBS sits at the boundary layer between bleeding-edge technology and hard science and engineering, making complicated infrastructure easy-to-use, while still enabling jobs to extract maximum performance. Originally developed at NASA Ames Research Center nearly 20 years ago, today, PBS is the most widely deployed workload and resource management software used anywhere in the world. Companies and institutions of all sizes use PBS to ensure their workloads run efficiently and reliably, on every type of HPC platform possible.
This Birds of a Feather session will bring together the PBS community of users, administrators and developers to openly share and discuss the direction of PBS to address 10-year forward looking HPC challenges such as Clouds, GPUs, simulation, optimization, and green computing. Bring your curiosity, bring your ideas, bring yourself.
