What Customers are Saying

With Univa Grid Engine, we have an infrastructure that schedules workloads to GPUs. We operate at 95% efficiency with lower overall costs.

Stephen Rawls,

Research Analyst, ISI,

USC School of Engineering

By Extending Univa Grid Engine to the Microsoft Azure cloud we gained practically infinite capacity from our hybrid solution cost-effectively.

Doron Sayag, IT Enterprise

Computing Services Manager,

Mellanox Technologies

This successful collaboration with Univa and AWS shows the extreme scale, power and agility of cloud-based HPC. We shrank simulation time from 20 days to 8 hours …a pace un-imaginable just a short time ago.

Steve Phillpott, CIO,

Western Digital

If you can be more efficient you gain a strategic or performance advantage. If Univa didn't make us go faster, we wouldn't be using it.
