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 […]

Seeing Further – HPC Inspires LRZ

One of our most recent success stories combines the efforts of SUSE, Lenovo and Intel at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (Leibniz Rechenzentrum, or LRZ). The new SuperMUC-NG installation provides LRZ with 26.7 petaflop computing capacity in a smaller data center footprint with drastically reduced energy usage and cost. What’s more interesting to me […]
