Accelerating Atmospheric Research at NCAR with HPE and SUSE

Extreme weather events and global warming are constantly in the news, dominating the list of long-term global risks to our planet. Having lived through many harsh winters in the mountains of Pennsylvania and dangerous hurricanes that have hit the Carolinas, I admire the research involved in monitoring climate change, data simulations and predictive analysis. As […]

PDSH, SLE, and SLURM

Managing many systems from one is a basic need for system administrators. A need which has obvious development commonality judging from the myriad tools available that delegate work to other systems. Often the criteria used to target systems for management is understandably inflexible. Directory service management consoles and configuration management systems are good examples of […]

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 […]
