SaltStack for Fast and Scalable Automation of HPC Distributed Systems

SESSION: Software for HPC

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 4:30PM - 5:00PM


Presenter(s):Jeff Porcaro



The bigger the data, the bigger the requirement for more computing power. If we can automate the build out and administration of the infrastructure that makes super computing possible, the more value we can extract out of data to deliver the real benefits of high performance computing. SaltStack is systems and configuration management software used to define the software-defined data center and to manage all the things including compute, storage, and the network. We know data centers aren’t built like they were even five years ago, and today's infrastructure requirements require more scale, security, stability, flexibility, and open standards. This presentation will show how SaltStack is used by organizations like the Center for Disease Control, Technicolor, LSU and Argonne National Laboratory to build a modern, software-defined infrastructure in minutes. The SC environment you always wished you had, shouldn’t be too difficult to get.
