Deploying SLURM PAM modules on SLE compute nodes

Security in High Performance Computing (HPC) environments has always been a proposal of relativity. Striking a balance between implementing an adequate level of security and not interfering with “getting the science done”. In the simplest terms the primary security realms HPC systems and clusters are exposed to are environmental and user facing. More specifically […]

Deploying SLURM using SLE HPC patterns

The expansion of High Performance Computing (HPC) beyond the niches of higher education and government realms to corporate and business computing use cases has been on the rise. One catalyst of this trend is increasing innovation in hardware platforms and software development. Both respectively drive down the cost of deploying supercomputing services with each iteration […]
