Latest SysFera Management Software Streamlines HPC Administration, Boosts Productivity

SysFera has introduced a new version of its SysFera-DS software that simplifies management of hybrid high performance computing (HPC) environments. The more lightweight architecture of this latest version, SysFera-DS v4.5, can be fully installed without downtime and ready for production in less than two hours. SysFera-DS v4.5 enables administrators to continue to provide best quality of service without maintenance interruptions, ensuring maximum customer productivity and access to applications at all times.

Thanks to a reworked application management interface, SysFera-DS v4.5 implements the ability for project and application managers to clone, modify, and reuse existing applications—a capability that streamlines launch of simulations. Productivity is further increased by a greatly improved user experience that enables users to complete computations more efficiently and maximize their usage of computing and graphical resources with best-of-breed GPU support for even cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services. Direct access to online, web-based help and tutorials guides users through all steps of the process and eliminates the need for heavy documentation and user guides.

With SysFera-DS v4.5, administrators can concentrate on the maintenance of their HPC systems and the service provided to end-users rather than spending time on installation and monitoring of the HPC applications. This frees up resources to build and improve computing systems as needed. Application managers can now provide easier, more simplified access to applications. The new slick graphical interface provides more intuitive access to HPC applications, and thanks to improved responsiveness, users can remotely access applications without requesting assistance from system administrators.

“The leap forward in streamlining HPC management is further proof of SysFera’s commitment to make HPC resources commonly available to small- and medium-sized businesses,” confirmed David Loureiro, CEO of SysFera. “We have greatly improved and simplified the administrative interface to ensure companies and computer centers can provide best quality of service for users without downtime. Since the user access, interface, and online documentation have also been improved, less support is required, boosting administrative and user productivity.”

This latest version of SysFera-DS addresses many of the unique concerns of HPC customers.

Most of HPC customers work in environments where their engineers and researchers constantly use numerous applications. SysFera-DS provides a three-click simple interface to integrate these applications, a simplicity and ease of use that far surpasses many HPC environments. As well, SysFera-DS works with almost any type of OS, batch scheduler, and type of application, making it very easy for end-users to concentrate on their core-business without a specialized desktop installation.

“SysFera-DS has streamlined our administrative workload significantly,” confirmed Arnaud Renard, Chief Technical Officer of ROMEO HPC Center, the most energy-efficient and powerful academic supercomputer in France at Mésocentre University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne. “Prior to working with SysFera, much of our day was focused on helping customers resolve challenges in accessing and setting up their analysis, and we were constantly running behind because of lack of a tool or method for such application support. And, when we had to do a system upgrade, companies and researchers alike were completely without access to their applications. SysFera-DS has changed all that.”
