TORQUE Resource Manager provides control over batch jobs and distributed computing resources. It is an advanced open-source product based on the original PBS project* and incorporates the best of both community and professional development. TORQUE may be freely used, modified, and distributed under the constraints of the included license.



SLURM is an open-source resource manager designed for Linux clusters of all sizes. It provides three key functions. First it allocates exclusive and/or non-exclusive access to resources (computer nodes) to users for some duration of time so they can perform work. Second, it provides a framework for starting, executing, and monitoring work (typically a parallel job) on a set of allocated nodes. Finally, it arbitrates contention for resources by managing a queue of pending work.



xCAT (Extreme Cloud Administration Toolkit) is a distributed computing management software developed by IBM, used for the deployment and administration of Linux or AIX based clusters.


Grid Engine

Univa Grid Engine software manages workloads automatically, maximizes shared resources and accelerates deployment of any container, application or service in any technology environment, on-premise or in the cloud.

Cloud Management

ScyldTM Cloud Manager

Modern HPC environments require centralized administration, health monitoring, historical usage reporting, job workflow tools, self-service tools for end-users, and a mix of virtual and bare-metal servers for efficient operation. Scyld Cloud Manager tames complex complex HPC environments by providing an interface for administrators and end-users to manage HPC workflows in a cloud environment of virtual and bare-metal resources.



OpenStack is a cloud framework that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.



Metal as a Service brings the language of the cloud to physical servers. It makes it easy to set up hardware on which to deploy any service that needs to scale up and down dynamically; a cloud being just one example.



Mirantis OpenStack gives you freedom of choice while delivering the reliability you expect from traditional virtualization environments. As a pure-play solution backed by commercial support, it brings the agility of the cloud to your enterprise.

3D Accelerated Cloud Workstations



Ceph is an open source, distributed storage platform that provides object store, block devices (RADOS), and a POSIX-compliant filesystem.



The OpenStack Object Store project, known as Swift, offers cloud storage software so that you can store and retrieve lots of data with a simple API. It’s built for scale and optimized for durability, availability, and concurrency across the entire data set.
