Univa Grid Engine is the flagship product from Univa Corporation and is often called a “workload manager” or “job scheduler.” These types of software products facilitate “cluster computing,” which means to use multiple computers (servers) at the same time to process information.

Singularity was designed for scientists’ need for a simple secure and mobile container platform. A unique design allowed Singularity to not only go beyond these expectations, but also become extremely useful in fields outside of High Performance Computing.
Now Singularity is being deployed all over the world, running everything from traditional HPC workloads to AI, machine / deep learning as well as Enterprise Performance Computing (EPC).

Pacific Teck offers three parallel file system storage software products:
BeeGFS transparently spreads user data across multiple servers. By increasing the number of servers and disks in the system, you can simply scale performance and capacity of the file system to the level that you need, seamlessly from small clusters up to enterprise-class systems with thousands of nodes.

BeeOND stands for BeeGFS on Demand and is a complementary product to BeeGFS but can be used with other file systems as well. It is typically used to aggregate the performance and capacity of internal SSDs, NVMe or hard disks in compute nodes for the duration of a compute job. This provides additional performance and a very elegant way of burst buffering. The way it works is to create one or multiple instances of BeeGFS on these compute nodes that can be created and destroyed “on-demand.”

Lustre is a type of a parallel distributed file system used for large-scale cluster computing. Parallel file systems allow for processing of large files by multiple nodes at once.

IMMERSION LIQUID COOLING
Green Revolution Cooling is the industry leader in liquid immersion cooling technology. Servers are submerged into patented racks filled with heat extracting liquid called ElectroSafe. The ElectroSafe coolant is circulated to a warm water heat exchanger connected to a cooling tower. No water chillers or air conditioners of any kind are needed. Servers do not need fans due to this alternative cooling method, so they are removed.

HIGH SPEED INTERCONNECT
Pacific Teck Supports Two High Speed Interconnects:
Intel Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) is a type of interconnect, comparable to Infiniband and Ethernet. OPA is based on Infiniband, Cray Ares and Intel proprietary technologies. In “cluster computing,” interconnects allow servers to communicate with one another in order to work together to process information.
