PBS -- Celebrating 20 Years of HPC History

SESSION: PBS -- Celebrating 20 Years of HPC History

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Bill Nitzberg

ROOM:TCC 202

ABSTRACT:
PBS began in 1991 when pioneers at NASA Ames Research Center launched a project to both standardize batch queuing and develop a truly portable workload management system capable of handling the world's largest parallel supercomputers. The project was wildly successful, giving us both the POSIX 1002.3d batch standard as well as the PBS software. Today, PBS is the most widely deployed workload and resource management software used anywhere in the world. As a community, we need to steer PBS to make HPC smarter, and address the future challenges in HPC: Clouds, GPUs, Big Data, Green Computing, Exascale, and beyond. This Birds of a Feather session will bring together PBS users, administrators and developers to celebrate the 20-year history of PBS and openly discuss the future direction of PBS. Bring your anecdotes, bring your curiosity, bring your ideas, bring yourself!
