Altair, a provider of high-performance computing (HPC) technology and services, has offered PBS Professional support for cross-domain configurations of Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise Linux that offered a range of workload management capabilities for demanding, distributed HPC environments.
PBS Professional now sepports cross-domain (also known as multi-level security) systems, and offers a better solution for flexible, highly configurable shared environments where security and performance are top priorities, such as classified research and development communities and government organizations.
Paul Smith, vice president and general manager, Public Sector, Red Hat said in a statement, “Red Hat Enterprise Linux features tight integration with SELinux, which enables the platform's native configurations to offer Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), data labeling, and continuous monitoring of security controls. Through PBS Professional, Altair abstracts these technical complexities to provide a consumable interface for cross-domain supercomputing, supporting multi-level security and unifying underlying security controls with workload management."
The Altair solution with Red Hat Enterprise Linux allows organizations to dramatically reduce HPC procurement costs. Rather it allows users to maintain individual HPC systems, users can now consolidate to just a few supercomputers , , resulting in millions of dollars in upfront savings, reduced datacenter footprints and power consumption, and a simplified IT architecture.
