ParaStation Modulo

ParaStation Modulo is a supercomputing software suite that enables the Modular Supercomputing Architecture (MSA) and is extensively used in production environments. A central pillar of the suite is ParaStation MPI and its versatile processes management subsystem, both perfectly tailored to meet the demands of MSA computing towards exascale. This pillar, in turn, is embedded into a complete framework for providing modular supercomputing: Besides a robust and efficient cluster middleware, the ParaStation software suite also comprises sophisticated management components like the ParaStation ClusterTools (for provisioning and administration), the ParaStation HealthChecker (for automated error detection and integrity checking) and the ParaStation TicketSuite (for analyzing and keeping track of issues).

Parastation MPI

ParaStation MPI is the MSA-enabled MPI library and runtime of ParaStation Modulo. It contains a high-performance communication library especially designed for HPC supporting different communication transports concurrently, and offers a complete process management system integrated with the batch queuing system and job scheduler.
