Altair PBS Professional™ is the trusted leader in high-performance computing workload management. It efficiently schedules HPC workloads across all forms of computing infrastructure, and it scales easily to support systems of any size — from clusters to the largest supercomputers.
Scheduling for high-throughput workloads just got easier. With the release of Altair® PBS Professional® 2020 we’ve expanded our industry-leading HPC workload manager with brand new capabilities, including hierarchical scheduling that can handle the biggest volumes of small, high-throughput jobs.
PBS Professional 2020
The new hierarchical scheduler built into PBS Professional offloads the base scheduler to enable greater throughput and better license and resource utilization. Batches of short jobs are presented as one longer job while maintaining full visibility into each individual job.
In addition to delivering a single scheduler for all types of workloads, PBS Professional has more new features including:
- Cloud bursting and dynamic extension with a built-in GUI
- Forecasting and simulation
- Allocation and budget management
- Security, performance, and administrative and usability updates
And PBS Pro users still get all the tools they already rely on for workload orchestration and optimization.
