SysFera-DS & EDF

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