    SysFera-DS & EDF SysFera-DS & EDF Presentation Transcript

    • Mutualizes and integrates heterogeneous and distributed HPC resources
    • Who are you guys?
    • SysFera
      • 2001: Research project from the Graal team (Inria/ENS)
        • DIET: grid middleware
      • 2007: SysFera-DS used within the Décrypthon project
        • Used in production 24/7/365 since then
        • Selected by IBM to replace Univa-UD
      • 2010: Creation of SysFera, INRIA spin-off
      • 2011: A team of 12 (R&D: 4 engineers and 5 PhD )
        • Supported by two experts from INRIA and ENS
        • SysFera-DS
    • Working with a leading international company
        Thanks to SysFera-DS , we can now provide our R&D engineers a stable , reliable and performant solution to access our supercomputers and computing clusters.
      David Bateman ICCOS Group Manager, EDF
    • The Problems
    • Distributed platforms are complex...
    • ...which raises some issues
      • access to resources
      • numerous accounts
      • multiple interfaces
      • integration of applications
      • dependence on batch schedulers
      • limited interaction between users, applications and machines
    • The Solutions
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • A unique interface for R&D engineers
      • Additional features for administrators and IT directors
      • A consistent way to control applications for HPC applications developers
      • Integration to the existing platforms and environment
      • Ability to use diverse resources (clusters, supercomputers, hybrid clouds)
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • For users
        • A unique interface for R&D engineers to launch HPC applications
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • For administrators and IT directors
        • Additional features including access-rights control, usage monitoring and reporting
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • For application developers
        • A consistent way to control HPC applications
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • For existing platforms
        • Integration to specific business environments
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • On various internal or external resources
        • Supercomputers
        • Clusters
        • Private/Public Clouds
        • Workstations
        • Datacenters
    • Easier, homogeneous access to resources
      • Tightly integrated with existing platforms and environments
      • Compatible and usable concurrently with the solution already in use
    • SysFera-DS does it all
    • SysFera-DS does it all
    • SysFera-DS does it all
      • Simple access to complex infrastructures
      • Advanced administration features
        • User management and access control
        • Monitoring and reporting
      • Consistent platform for application development
      • Integration to existing environments
      • Compatibility with many different resources
      • Non-intrusive, non-exclusive
      • Flexible, stable, reliable, performant
    • Industrializing HPC applications
      • SysFera-DS turns a complex infrastructure into a private Cloud
      • Single Sign On = simple access
      • One code compatible with several ressources
      • A unified interface leads to unified processes
    • The power of the community
    • The power of the community
        SysFera-DS is open-source software... ...which means anyone can use it, share it, and contribute to it.
    • The power of the community
        Yes, it means you, too! So feel free to give it a try and become part of the community! ...and more!
