Considerations for Managing HPC Resources

In this special guest feature, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World writes that companies faced with increasing complexity are developing new services and tools to help users manage their HPC resources.

As the complexity of both HPC hardware and the challenges that scientists are trying to solve using HPC systems increases, ensuring a system is utilized efficiently is necessary to deliver a computing service with value for money and a high research output.

This requires HPC centers focus on how to make best use of available resources through software and services designed to get applications running on a HPC system and to increase performance.

Andrew Jones, vice-president of strategic HPC services and consulting at The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), said that one of the most common pitfalls that hinder HPC performance is the focus on hardware, instead of overall service and investment in application development.
