Univa is pleased to announce that as of March 2018 we have been recognized by Amazon’s Partner Network (APN) as an Advanced Technology Partner. The AWS Partner program is divided into multiple tiers, with the Advanced designation reserved for partners with deep technical competence who have grown from lower tiers demonstrating growth and maturity within the APN program. Advanced Technology Partners are required to meet threshold revenue levels, exhibit high-levels of technical competency, and demonstrate proven expertise and a track record of successfully deploying customer solutions on AWS.
In February of 2018, Univa launched its ready-to-run Univa Grid Engine solution on the AWS Marketplace. Grid Engine is deployed in thousands of enterprises of all sizes and features over 1,000 integrated applications. By providing a fully automated solution for deploying Univa Grid Engine to AWS, Univa is making it easier than ever to deploy a variety of HPC, analytics, and machine learning workloads in the cloud. You can read about Grid Engine clusters on the AWS marketplace here, or view a demonstration showing how production-ready clusters can be deployed and scaled in minutes on AWS.
Also, Univa recently unveiled its next-generation Navops Launch, based on open source project Tortuga, part of a suite of products that make it easier for enterprise customers to migrate to the cloud or deploy hybrid clouds. Using Navops Launch, Grid Engine users can easily extend their on-premise compute environments to tap resources in AWS and other cloud services seamlessly. Customers benefit from the ability to increase capacity without investing in on-premise infrastructure, and because Grid Engine works with Navops Launch to grow and shrink cloud-based capacity subject to policy and application demand, there is no change to the user experience. Navops Launch and AWS were recently the subjects of a case study at the Wharton School of business where Wharton’s Research Computing team were able to triple their core-count, avoiding new investments in on-premises infrastructure while minimizing disruption to their existing compute environment and thousands of business and analytic application users.
With these and other AWS-friendly solutions, Univa’s relationship with AWS continues to grow in depth and breadth, and we look forward to continuing to grow our partnership and help our mutual customers take advantage of the growing portfolio of AWS cloud services.
