LISLE, Ill. -- Univa UD, a pioneer in HPC systems management products for the complete distributed computing lifecycle today announced the launch of the Open HPC Management Interoperability Project on its open source community site, A collaboration with Sun Microsystems, BioTeam Inc., Grid Gateway, and Runtime Design Automation, the open source projects primary goal is to simplify the challenges of managing HPC Systems and to reduce the associated costs.

“Many interoperability initiatives have been designed to enable applications to run out of the box, but there are several aspects of HPC systems that have yet to standardize,” said Gary Tyreman, vice president and general manager of HPC for Univa UD. “These non-standard aspects impact how effectively a system administrator integrates and manages the system. With this project, Univa UD continues its leadership by working with industry partners to drive standards intended to remove business costs associated with vendor lock-in.”
