SC19 was a fascinating experience for us at Univa! Between the talks, panels, draws and our very own booth, we met with attendees as excited about HPC (and the cloud!) as our team. This Supercomputing conference was unlike any other we had experienced, for which we thank the attendees and the organizing committee.
Our favorite highlights include the raffles we sponsored with CC IN2P3, our panel with Intel and the many presentations we did with Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud, focusing on our favorite topic: HPC cloud migration. Univa was also honored with an HPCwire Editors’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in Manufacturing. We were proud to announce at SC19 that we have advanced NVIDIA® GPU scheduling support in Univa Grid Engine® to include Arm®-based systems. Of course, we can’t forget the SportPesa Racing Point F1™ Team car! (Did you take a picture with the car? We don’t blame you! Share your photos with us on Twitter!)
This year’s crowd was the most engaged to date. The tradeshow floor was bursting with creativity and innovation. We were so fortunate to meet with people, driving our own creativity and momentum. Whether it was a presentation with a partner, or demoing Navops Launch 2.0 at our booth, we were always learning, always pushing forward.
Our team held several presentations and demos with our partners about HPC in the Cloud, showcasing Navops Launch 2.0 at SC19. Navops Launch enables enterprises to control spending, automate applications and manage data placement by selecting and deploying cloud resources. We offer cost control with cloud spend association and integrated data migration for Navops Launch users, which we have since extended to the Slurm community.
Our Lunch and Learn at SC19 was the best yet! We had a fantastic group of individuals interested in Getting a Handle on HPC Cloud Costs. This year’s event sparked amazing conversations. Thank you to our special guest speaker, Rob Futrick from Microsoft Azure, and to our guests from all around the HPC Community.
With SC19 wrapped up, we at Univa look forward to 2020 and SC20. We have fantastic opportunities we can’t wait to share with you.
See you in Atlanta, SC20!
